October SOS Tic Tac Toe - "Paint Night!"

It's October!! My favorite month!  I love the fall air, the leaves changing color, pumpkins, and Halloween.  It is the month of our Wedding Anniversary too - and this year we will be married 35 years!!  It is also time for the October Scrap Our Stash Tic Tac Toe Challenge, check out the board below.  All you have to do is pick 3 items from any row on the board - across, up and down, or diagonally. What will you chose?

You would think since October is my favorite month, that I would have picked Orange, Pumpkin  and Die Cut - but no, I did not.  I had a photo on my desk of my oldest son Nick and I, that I've been dying to get on a layout - so this month I chose to use:
Mini Alphas
American Crafts
Die Cut

Here is my layout -  "Paint Night!"
We had lots of fun! I knew I had to use that base page with the paint brushes on it for this layout!

I made the die-cut paint brushes with my Cricut - and then shaded them with Distress Stains and a fine point Sharpie marker - I love how they came out! 

Here are the Mini Alphas !

I LOVE these Bonjour Thickers from American Crafts and I think they are Perfect for this title and layout!!

Any day with my son Nick is a Happy Day - don't ya just love that  "Flair!" - Oh - and here you can see my journaling tag tucked behind the photo - in a pocket made with 3D Foam Tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you find the time to play along with us this month at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!
