"Take A Left At The Cow" Layout by Designer Steffanie Seiler

Hi there
Thank you for stopping by!
Today we are featuring the awesome layout
Designer Steffanie Seiler 
created inspired by the

"Take A Left At The Cow"
Steffanie:
"Hi there! I'm pretty excited to share today's layout because it's one of those pages I imagined as I was taking the photos. We all have those, right? The cow is definitely a landmark along this route and the signs are not ones I see in my neck of the woods. So, in my book...scrap-worthy, for sure!
For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I chose the middle row---
the color yellow, clouds (I used cloud paper and a cloud printed heart sticker) and a paper clip (green arrow). 
Now that I look at the challenge again, 
I realize that I also have the diagonal row covered with 
4+ patterned papers, clouds and a tab (black "journey"). 
How many rows can you get?"
