Inspiration from graph paper

Hi y'all! Teri here. :)
Anyone who knows me knows I break for the office supply aisle whenever I go to the store. The clips, the papers and everything else make swoon.
So it probably isn't a surprise that I found some inspiration this week from the office supply aisle.
Specifically, what caught my eye was a table of graph paper.
That is the very reason there is the graph-paper looking circle on this little layout of me and a couple of my Funk-ette pals that I tossed together the other night. :)
Here's I achieved the graph paper look:
I began with the ledger circle stamp from Technique Tuesday's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" stamp set.
I inked it up and stamped it once on my circle of cardstock.
I then inked the stamp up again, rotated the stamp 90 degrees and stamped on the circle again.
The result: the look of graph paper.
