Default SIC104 Pleasing Plaids (07/25/11)

Sorry this is a few days late--I forgot it was my week to post an inspiration challenge!

Have you noticed that plaids never seem to go out of style? I’ve always liked plaids—not all plaids, but many of them! I find myself looking at plaids when I shop for both household and clothing items. My DIL is a big plaid fan too. Are you??

MY CHALLENGE TO YOU THIS WEEK IS SIMPLE—use plaid(s) on your page. It can be the paper, ribbon, border, plaid alphas, just use a little or a lot of plaid—any colors too. The plaid can even be in your photos if you want.

For a little inspiration, attached are a few plaids I found while browsing on the internet.

And here are my samples:

Painting at Grandma's

Ready, Set, Sit

Check out the PLEASING PLAIDS GALLERY here

I look forward to seeing your pages with plaids, ladies! As always, they can be paper, digi or hybrid!!! Don't forget to add SIC104 and SBC11JUL (or in a few days it'll be SBC11AUG!) to your keywords so we can all ooh and ahh!

How funny, today I wore a plaid shirt that I bought only because my grand-daughter said gramma plaid is in! Great challenge!

What fun to work with plaid. I think this cow theme, sort of country I guess worked well for plaid paper.

Joyce Ann, your page turned out great! I love it--especially your fun photo! Thanks for playing!

Patti, that is pretty funny--maybe you should scrap a photo of you in your new shirt!

Patti--I love your page! I do so enjoy seeing plaids on pages. There's just something comforting about themfor me. The journaling spot looks great with the ribbon and rose--and the cute pink border at the bottom. Thanks for playing!

I just downloaded a mini kit from the Blog Train that had plaids in it and thought of this challenge. I'll have to keep it in mind once I find pics that fit the color scheme.

Here's a dps I did using some plaid. I used a sketch from Motherload's blog for the left side. I had planned to use plaid on the right side too, but somewhere along the line I failed to add the plaid piece before i glued down the collage, so only one side has plaid. Oh well! lol
