Make borders around the edge of your layout
I like making a border around the edge of my page. I can help "hold" things in and make them nice and cozy, not just off into space. I also used the sketch that the weekly challenge had us use. It was a great one for some everyday photos that didn't really have a story of their own, but a super cute subject. The sketch called for 1.5" photos and paper squares, but I bumped them up to 2" to get more of the cutie in them.
I cut the chevron strips and place them in a frame pattern, then added the brads at the corner to anchor them down. I like how this one turned out!
