"Donuterie" SOS July Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello and welcome to the July Tic Tac Toe Challenge at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!!  Which row will you chose?
I couldn't decide so I picked a bunch of them!!
CENTER: The colors RED, WHITE and BLUE, Stars, Tag
DIAGONAL: Striped Paper, Stars, Twine
BOTTOM: Striped Paper, Tag, Banner (across the bottom)
** I'm almost tempted to go back and add a Number, Chipboard and Stamping - to "fill" the whole board!! - Maybe that is an idea for next month's challenge??!!

I am also entering this Layout in the July challenge over at the Creative Embellishment Blog - using this photo as inspiration: 

Here is my Design Team Layout - I call it: 
On our first trip to Vancouver, BC in 2015, we made sure we visited Cartem's Donuterie!  I had found them on line when searching for "vegan" food, for my oldest son, and saw that they made vegan donuts, (as well as regular ones too!)  WELL.... that MIGHT depend upon what you think "regular" is!  How about  "Canadian Whiskey Maple Bacon" (Yes REAL Bacon!) or "Earl Grey" with actual Rose Petals sprinkled on it!  I put this place on my "MUST DO" trip planning list right away!

We weren't able to make it there pre-cruise - so it was a MUST DO, post cruise.   We navigated / toured the city using a Hop on Hop off Trolley, and tried to plan it so that the Donuterie was near our last stop.  It almost worked out that way - it was our 3rd to last stop- and I ended up carrying the Bright Red Donut box around the city for about an hour or so!! -  Well, many Vancouverites, commented on my precious cargo, with "YUM, Cartem's" as we walked back to our hotel!!  Needless to say, they were correct - YUM! for sure!

Yes, donuts (and coffee) make me happy, and this sweet little puffy donut sticker does too!

I love how the twine used for the banner matches the twine used to tie the donut box!

This is a close up of the title I cut on my new Cricut Explore Air 2 - I really need to use it more - as I love how this came out!
I made a "secret" little pocket behind the donut photo to tuck in a journaling card.

On the back of the tag I made a "Donut Map" and noted the date on the right hand side.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at the Scrap Our Stash Blog this month!!  Come on - "Get Scrappy" with us!!
