Hooked on Hexagons!

 This is my 2nd post for the day. If you are coming through CAS-ual Fridays, please click here .
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As you probably can tell, I have been hooked on hexagons lately! I look at this unique shape with a very different perspective after getting the diecut. Here is another play with hexagon die cut and Basic Grey paper. 
you did it
I created a Hexagon chipboard by layering an extra diecut underneath. The new Basic Grey Konnichiwa collection is perfect for this design. I applied the SRM Stickers (cut up the sentiment "you did it") over the hexagons. So easy!
A reminder for you to check out the "Yes, Virginia....I'm Inspired" Challenge (see the link under the blog banners) right here in my blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with! And if you miss seeing "What is Dr. John thinking..." lately, well, he has plenty to say about hexagons...
