This is from the dollowing article in BOL:
Understanding Database Diagram Ownership (Visual Database Tools)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186345.aspx
Some points to keep in mind about diagram ownership:

Although any user with access to a database can create a diagram, once the diagram has been created, the only users who can see it are the diagram's creator and any member of the db_owner role.

Ownership of diagrams can only be transferred to members of the db_owner role. This is only possible if the previous owner of the diagram has been removed from the database.

If the owner of a diagram has been removed from the database, the diagram will remain in the database until a member of the db_owner role attempts to open it. At that point the db_owner member can choose to take over ownership of the diagram.
