Polka Dots and Stripes Challenge!

This week's challenge is a salute to trendy polka dots and stripes!  Get your spotty polka dotty fun on and create a project to share with us this week.  Want to step it up a design notch?  Add some stripes for flair and pizazz!

This week's challenge works perfectly with the new Close to My Heart special "Dotty for You" papers.  So perfectly our entire design team independently chose to work with these papers this week!  While you don't have to use this particular paper, you do need to use Close to My Heart products and mention this challenge site in your post!  Have fun playing this week!

Here's the Design Team's work starting with this month's Guest Designer, Susie Rostad:







We can't wait to see what you create!
