TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday.  I am a bit late getting this post up.  I haven't had a lot of energy today.  First of all, I woke up this morning at 9:00 (I never sleep in that late) with the most horrendous headache.  I drank 2 cups of coffee and that helped clear a few of the cobwebs in my head.  I putzed around a tiny bit more and then went back to bed til about 1:00.  Again something I never do.  I wasn't sleeping, but I was very cold.  Still wasn't able to warm up.  I proceeded to have 2 cups of hot tea, dressed in 2 pairs of sock, a pair of sweats, a t-shirt and a sweatshirt.  Then I got into my favorite chair with 2 blankets and my son's Under Armour jacket and was still cold!  I finally felt normal body heat about 9:00 this evening.  Crazy!!

Anyway, I do have a page to share with you for this week's TPE Scrapbook Challenge.  This week we're playing with Chevrons or Hexagons.  This was a perfect opportunity for me to make more Chevrons.  If you've not seen my tutorial on these fun borders, click here.

You'll have to imagine a photo in there.  I'm imagining of shot of my kids at the beach.  I just didn't have a picture large enough handy when I made this.  I did use this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch from MFT for this layout.

This picture gives you an up-close of my title featuring Framed Greetings from MFT and a snippet of the Chevron border I created.  I made two and layered them.

And while I'm here playing catch up.... Let me also share my card that I created for this week's challenge at Fun 'n Flair.  We're making textured cards.

My card features Chickadee, a new digi available at Fun 'n Flair.  The Easter egg is from a coloring page I found on the internet.  The washi tape I scored from a great sale at The Beary Scrap.  50% off!!  I created this card with The Kraft Journal and i {heart} sketches.
