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.

March Challenge- Chevrons and the colour blue

Castello di Sammezzano
This castle looks sedate on the outside but on the inside? It’s an explosion of color and texture. The 16th century masterpiece of architecture and design sat abandoned in Tuscany, Italy, for decades.



Here is your stimulus picture for March and the challenge is use chevrons and the colour blue.

WE know you will enjoy this one !

You can use any papercraft item you wish, layout, card, ATC, off the page and you can combine it with other challenges.
Our criteria must be OBVIOUS on your entry.

The prize this month is a selection of items from Spotlight. (I've been shopping!)

Our winner for February is Judy W.

A special mention to Kylie GW. We loved your little house.
