A new digi trick

The DSM forum has a new contest out: Lucky in Love. April posted two head start challenges (for obsessive people like me...) and one is to create a layout with a repeating pattern. I understand this could be anything... photos that are square, circle, square, circle; or using stitching; or ... you remember those find the pattern problems from elementary school.

Well I decided I wanted to make an embossing pattern. It took me two hours to design the pattern, but once you do it you just tell it to fill the whole area with the pattern and it repeats. Does that make sense? And I can use this over and over with any shape or with any color.

Now I just have to figure out how to incorporate it into a layout. But needless to say I am very proud of my new trick!

Wow. I'm impressed. I can't tell where the pattern starts at all.

Kelly, I love it. Did you just use a layer style to get the embossed look?

I wish I had one tenth of your ability/drive to figure things out. Does that make sense? when you want to know something you figure it out! I ask people to help..it saves time:)
