Show Me Your Chevron

Ahhhh. Its raining here tonight (actually, its storming, but rain is rain!) The boys are all in bed and I am catching up on some blogging, reading some news online and just basically relaxing. Love nights like this!

Over on the Paper Issues Blog, the challenge right now is to use chevron on a project. I haven't been much in the scrapbooking mood - until last night, that is. I cannot even tell you how nice it was to just sit down and play with my papers. Therapeutic, almost!

For the chevron challange, I ended up making my own chevron pattern.

This was not an easy task for me.

 My chevrons aren't perfect, but in the end, I kinda like it that way. They are messing, imperfect and I added messy stitching around the edge to reinforce the 'messy' theme. I'm not a natural at being a messy scrapper (Hello! I love straight lines and balance!) but I really did try to go to the messy side with this page!

The photo was a iPhone pic that we took ourselves, and while its not the best, I love that we are both in it and have the ocean in the background. It was cold and rainy the day we were at Daytona so the beaches were empty. This was Alex's first time to see the ocean and I loved that we had it to ourselves. We can't wait to go back (when its sunny and warmer)!

You should head over to the Paper Issues Blog and link up all your chevron layouts before challenge ends! If you've got no time to scrap, how about just browsing through all amazing projects already linked! You never know when you will be inspired!
