    Be good to your favorite designer (I used to be one!) by LETTING THEM KNOW how much you appreciate their work!

    Howdy folks! I thought I still had months to put this together, and here we are. Ops!

    Well, let's give it the old college try. I hear circles are the latest rave, and I thought... Why not play a game and have fun with circles at the same time. So, here is the challenge for this first half of the month.

    1. Download the zip file below
    2. Get yourself a partner and play a game of tic-tac-toe
    3. Use the resulting game as a guide for your layout
    4. Use the grid in the zip file and colored it or texture it using one of the seamless tiles included in the zip
    5. Use the x and the circle, copy and paste them as needed, to duplicate the game you played, and color or textured them the same way you did your grid
    6. The seamless tiles can be used as a tiled background or paper scraps
    7. Use some of the other goodies included in the zip to ornament the layout. Some of them can also be textured or colored
    8. Use the circles for frames for some of your pictures of people playing games or having fun
    9. Use the empty squares, if you have any, for journaling
    10. Post your finished layouts in the gallery with a link to this thread
    11. Send me a medium cafe latte with a vanilla biscotte asap.

    At the end of the challenge, all the participants will recieve an complete alpha set like the sample below. I would post a sample of the challenge here, except that, as you all know, I can't make templates worth a thing... So, please, this is part of your challenge, teaching me to do something with the goodies I'm giving you.

    Have fun, follow the rules, and ask me any questions you may have. Won't answer them, but you can ask alll you want!!! LOL.

              Thank you Granny. This is a really fun and different Challenge. I did this one squared off like a patchwork quilt effect. Who knows how I will do my next one.

                  Great layout, VE! Great use of the empty squares. Love it.

                  Just a reminder to every one. If you bring in the tiles as paper scraps, they will tile seamlessly, and they will not look fuzzy. Same with background, bring it in and tile it.

                  Keep them coming girls!

                    Sorry I did mine on purpose going for the softer blanket affect.

                        Oh, beautiful layout, Linda, and what a cutie she is. I love the way your used transparency on the xs and the grid.

                        And I can see what you did with the blanket effect on the previous one. Great idea.

                            Thanks Granny and Janarae. I wanted to try something different. I was pleased with how it turned out.
