So I have been really busy with yard work and puppies. I got the idea for this layout from a page posted on face book. I made a couple of mistakes. the first being that I forgot to cut half my strips with the opposite diagonal. I just stacked them all up and cut them all the same way. Opps! Lucky for me the paper is double sided so I just turned some over and used the pattern on the other side, then my angle went the right way. I also had a hard time getting my 45 degree angle right. Not to bad for my first try I guess.
