Fri 1st Nov....Team A: Wk 19 Tic Tac Toe - choose 3!

Hi everyone, welcome back to another Graph'It challenge, thanks so much for joining us : )

It's a bitter-sweet week this week...unfortunately we've had to sadly say goodbye to our teamies Faye Wynn Jones and Karen O'Brien who are both extremely busy bees and can't extend their DT term with us....from the whole team and on behalf of Premium Craft Brands and Graph'It I want to say a massive thanks to them both for all the fabulous work they've shared with us over the past few months, they will be hugely missed (but we're kinda hoping we can convince 'em both to Guest for us soon ; )....

So, that meant we had a couple of spaces on the team which needed to be filled and so this week we are delighted that we have Iris Weichmann and Jane Millard with us for their very first team post - woohooo!! (and not forgetting the gorgeous Deborah Eastman who will be joining us next week with her first post too!)...please make sure you check out their blogs and give them a follow because they really are very inspiring!

So onto this week's business....our theme this week is....
The team were all asked to follow the sketch - I think this one scared them a little at first but I tried to be kind and make it easy LOL! You guys at home can either follow the theme for some fun 
we will let YOU enter 'Anything Goes
this week (but we'd love you to try the challenge of course!)...
The winner of this challenge will receive £30 of Graph'It goodies to play with so you need to be in it to win it! 

Our Random winner from Week 17 is No.1 Caroline Woodhall - congratulations Caroline! You won Graph'It goodies, please email us here to claim your prize : )
Our Top 3 entries for this challenge were 2 Kym, 4 Vikki , and 1 Caroline so well done ladies, don't forget to grab your blinkies!

So, let's get to the great team creations this week...

Remember to join our Facebook group too, Graph'It Markers UK, where we have daily inspiration and share some of our favourite makes & hints and tips every day, it's a great place to see some fantastic makes from the team and pick their brains on colours and techniques!....
