So...Diagonal Stripes?

Did you know that The ScrapRoom has a Message Board? Well, we do, and the chit-chat over there is sooooo much fun!! They chat about everything, from what's for dinner to what kind of scrapbook adhesive you may use. Did you know there is a weekly challenge on the Message Board? Well, there is. The challenges are posted on Sunday, and they are super fab. This week I am hosting the challenge, per the request of one of our members. The challenge...diagonal stripes. Check out my layout using diagonal stripes...

You 2

I must say, I kinda shy away from diagonal stripes sometimes. But I do find that when I use them in small doses, I like it. On this layout I used the MME True Blue Collection from January's FOTM kit. It has the most beautiful mix of colors on the diagonal stripe piece. But to help me get over my fear, I just used a small strip.

So, Tammy (because she is just the best) has decided that to encourage you to use diagonal stripes, she would throw in a sweet prize. Yep, a $5 gift certificate to the TSR store!!! All you have to do to be eligible is create a layout using diagonal stripes....that is it!! Make sure to comment to this post, and leave us a link to your layout by February 19th. We will post the winner on January 2oth right here.

And BTW, if you are loving the supplies I used, there are a few February kits left. In the FOTM kit you get 3 of the papers, Pink Paislee brads, green and white twine, and cardstock!!! But the kicker, the entire piece of 12 X 12 coordinating MME chipboard is in the Embellishment Add-On!!! I'm not even kidding!!! It is simply lovely!

Don't forget, go check out our Message Board. You can also find this challenge present there too! You will LOVE it!!

See ya soon!!
