It is Tic Tac Toe time at Southern Girls Challenge this month!
Choose a row of three from this board:
I’ve been doing quite a bit of sewing recently, having done an upholstery course and (nearly) covered a chair, as well as other bits and pieces. So scrapping a picture of me age 7 at the sewing machine seemed fitting!
I decided to use my sewing machine on my layout so lace seemed to be an obvious choice! I had white lace, so that was two of the three easily.
I found some paper that matched the feel of my photo, ripped a strip of coordinating paper, and stitched it on. I then added strips of lace and stitched them on too.
To attach my photo I kept with the theme and stitched it on! But before I did I put a line of stitching across the top – this meant that I could keep the border but also add a journaling tag behind the photo.
To finish off the layout I found some white bling that I had been given in a class – perfect to tie the third element into the other two. If bling hadn’t been on the TTT Board I probably wouldn’t have used it, but I love the effect it gives!
Finally I cut a little white tag and used some lace as the ribbon in the hole, then put it behind my picture. This was a simple layout, but I love it – the textures, the colours and the theme!
