My first sketch

You can tweak the simple sketch to your liking.
You can also turn the sketch around. You can add matting, torn edges on the tic toe square.. options are simply endless.
As edges are bare, you can place borders- sew on it, cut it, punch it.
The divisions on the tic tac toe shape can be replaced by ribbon.
All squares don’t need to be pictures – it can be also be embellishments . The no. of pictures is not at all limted. As long as there are pictures!
The circle on bottom left corner can be embellished with flowers, diecut or chipboard w/ caption around circle . These are just mere suggestions, of course.

The inspiration came from reading about using negatives of chipboard. The tic toe square shape came from my kids puzzle pieces. I kept the chipboard excess and WALLA! fantastic!

I will upload my sample very soon...
My challenge is for you to give it a go.

In recent dev'ts this weekend, I wanted to channel the 'negative vibes' and turn it to something good and positive. It is my special way to show ppl that PINOYs are a generous group. We are the kind who would give an 'arm and a leg' to help friend out. We are a peace loving and caring bunch and its the love of this hobby that truly has united us.

I am willing to send some RAKS who can spring out a take on my very simple sketch. I am willing to send these anywhere in the world. Just give me some love and make a layout about anything your heart desires, no special theme,-- just you creative freedom in one layout.

You can send the layouts to me at this email Be sure its in my mailbox by the 1st April and will announce RAK winnners soon after.

Thanks ladies. You can also ask some friends of yours from different groups, countries to join this challenge.

Leave me a note in my chatterbox should you want to take me up on this RAK offer.

cheers,.. hope you all have a great day!

Hello, Joanne! This is my first time to visit your blog! May I link you up? I'll try my best to do the sketch but at the moment I can't be sure yet because this is hell month for a teacher with graduation, grades, 10th school anniversary celebration, slid show, etc., etc. to still do this month. Anyway, I wanted to leave a message in your CBox but the portion underneath for writing on was missing. I just wanted to say, it is an honor to visit your blog and congratulations on your DT stint! I'm sure they will all be pleasantly surprised at how good you really are. More power to you! (And thanks for praying for the Fundraiser's success!)
