Summer Adventures | Debbi Tehrani

Hey, Foxy Friends! Did you hear Bramble Fox now has a monthly challenge? Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE challenges, so I decided to give this month's tic-tac-toe challenge a whirl. Here's what I created. (Please note that I scrap 8 x 8, so the products always look larger on my pages).

s a reminder, here is a picture of the tic-tac-toe board for this challenge. I used all 9 squares because, like I said, I just love a challenge!

When I saw the center of the tic-tac-toe board said circles, I immediately thought of a sun and created my own by scribbling a large circle in the center of my page with a yellow Faber-Castell Gelato and blending it with a paint brush and water. After it dried, I machine stitched in a circle to meet the top-middle square of the board. The white border is a super-old Paper Frills by Doodlebug.

How fabulous is that title from the Summer Adventures pack, which includes a second title that says "Getaway." And I just had to use that fun scuba mask from the Pool Party pack which comes with a whole bunch of adorable pieces.

I was a little stumped about how to use ribbon and then I saw Julie Taylor had made tabs, so thank you, Julie, for that brilliant idea! Stapling them on met the requirement for the metal in the bottom right square.

For the mixed media square, I added some blue Tim Holtz Distress ink with water to the background to echo the water in the photos and fussy cut (another square from the tic-tac-toe) some tropical flowers from a paper from Simple Stories' Hello Summer collection.

The flip-flops are also from the Pool Party pack. I just love their translucence and the frosted detail in the etching. And of course I had to add some water droplets using Nuvo Drops and circles from the Holy Moly pack. Raise your hand if you're hoping Bramble Fox will make these Holy Molys in other colors!

And of course the flamingo floaty, also from the
