New Monster Trucks | Scrapbook Layout

About a Boy has a new challenge up today. For the April 1st challenge, we want to see chevrons.

It took me a long time to get on board with the chevron trend, but I once I fell in love, I understood why they are so popular. :)  I started out using this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. I love using sketches!

The background yellow is from Basic Grey. The kraft paper is Neenah Desert Storm. I made the polka dot chevron by covering a sheet of Desert Storm with polka dot washi and then punching large squares out. Then, I cut the squares in half and made the chevron pattern using glue dots. Lastly, I sewed the edges down. I assembled the layout. The black letters are a new favorite font from American Crafts Amy Tangerine line. The red label is from Hello Forever and the swell wood word is from Freckled Fawn. The gray tag is from Office Depot.

P.S. I am not sure why the pictures of the boys are so blue in these pics. They are pretty Instagram pics in real life.
