June challenge.

Here's my cousin's son Tom Papworth in Cairo.
Tom makes videos for You tube of his travels. Here's his pyramid tour.

The pyramids are the oldest architecture we know of ,so I thought I'd use this picture to inspire you.

The challenge this month is to use more than 2 triangles.

We are sponsored this month by Blossom tree creations

Check out Linda's store.

                   As usual the Design team girls have been busy. Here are their ideas for you.

                                                           BUFFY (using a cut file)

                                                                       DALE (using a banner)
                                                                      LESLIE (using as an accent)

TRISH (Using lacey triangles)

JULENE (using lots of scraps of triangles to form a border)
