Sass Grid from Modular CSS with Sass ?

Hi everyone!

I have been doing the Modular CSS with Sass course and the thought Sass generating my grids from now on is awesome!

But I have transferred all the code I thought Guil Hernandez had used to codepen here and its all gone horribly wrong.....

I'd really like to get this down and working well so its usable for others any help will be much appreciated!

Your problem is that the padding you have is not included in the width of your columns, so you can't fit all the columns in one row. The solution is simple, add this to the top of your SCSS:

* {
    box-sizing: border-box;

This makes it so padding and borders are included in the calculation of an element's width.

Its amazing what can be overlooked .... Thanks a lot Colin... :D
