Guest Designer Brenda Turner

Brenda really surprised me with this fabulous little tic tac toe game she made using "Square Pegs" and "Hip to Be Square" this week, omitting the center lines to split the frame into 9 instead of four squares and then making little button markers!
I love the little pouches she made for the playing pieces (even marking the different x's and O's from that same XO stamp, so cute!) This design could easily be adapted using any of the other images in the Square Pegs (or Hip to Be Square) set: imagine two sets of Easter eggs for an Easter gift for a child, different colored pumpkins for Halloween, or chocolate and vanilla iced cupcakes for a birthday, etc! Brenda's game is a little larger than A2 size, but you could adapt it onto a smaller card front, or even a square one if you wished and put the game piece pouches inside. She's got me really excited about the possibilities!

Let's go see what else Brenda has this week! :)

What a nifty tic tac toe game -- those little pouches for the game pieces are perfect! And changing the game pieces for the season or any other reason is great too!
