Tic Tac Toe challenge

It's time for another Twisted Tuesday challenge! This week the challenge is Tic Tac Toe Mechanics!
Use the tic tac toe board to make your creation: Use 3 in a row-it can be across, down or diagonal!

The TWIST...Let a machine help you with your creation this week. Like your Cricut, Cuttlebug, Big Shot, etc. 

I made some die cuts with my Big shot and arranged them on my background here. Then I sponged around them and took them off. I added some rhinestones to give the page some "sparkle." I also used my sewing machine around the outside edges of the page and to stitch down the picture to its frame. 

I added a bunch of embellishments on the page as you can see. The flowers came on a roll, like ribbon, and I got it at Walmart. I just love them! As you can see I also added some little blue rhinestone flowers here as well. 

I just want to mention the twine. Since I had to use three elements for the tic tac toe, this is the second and the Congratulations is the third.  So, I went diagonal on the tic tac toe board. The picture is an oldie from my stash of old family pictures. I am not sure who these people are but they are related somehow. I wish more people would label their pictures so later descendants could at least know their names!

I hope you will take a few minutes and visit the Twisted Tuesday challenge blog and join the fun. We would love to see one of your creations for sure!

Так ли это?..Над определением любви человечество бьется с незапамятных времен. На нынешний день таких определений баста кипа, но одного всеобъемлющего нет. Коли хотите, могу предложить вам частный вариант. [url=]мужчина[/url]
