Challenge #4 & a Prize!!!

This week's challenge is a fun one!  It goes right along with GYSO, so if you are gonna play along there, play along here, too!!!!  I am also offering a prize this week!  Read through to the end of the post to see what it is!

We are in the midst of a HUGE winter storm/blizzard, so you'd think I'd be scrapping away...Well, I have not!  However, I planning on spending my third snow day at home scrapping all day tomorrow!

This week's challenge is number 17 in the book, "Tilt your design on an angle."  I am typically not a "tilted" scrapper.  I like everything straight with clean lines, so this really was a challenge for me.  I used the sketch from GYSO because it matched the sample layout from the book and went with my pictures so well.  Here is my layout:

The banner reads "Academic Bowl"
As you can see, this is very titled!!  Okay, your turn!!!  Link it up in the comments by Sunday night, February 6th to be eligible for this prize:

This is a Making Memories 10 x 10 Seasonal Calendar kit.  You can see the contents included in the top picture to make a page to remember each month of your year.  It has 538 pieces!!!  Time to get scrappin'!!!

Enjoy Everything,
