Once again I have Challenged myself...Counterfeit Kit Challenge: Triangles

So, do you ever wonder how I pick the challenges for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge?  I have all of my favorite blog stops on my Blog Lovin' feed and go through them every few days.  Any blog post that makes me pause or inspires me I "like" so it will save it for me.  Those are what inspire our challenges.  I try to not pick anything that looks too easy for me.  In fact, I usually pick things that I really don't like to do or am not good at.  LOL  I am a glutton for punishment!

Triangles.  UGH!  Love banners, but ask me to use a triangle (other than a visual one) another way and I am stuck...stuck...stuck!  So here we go!  Starting with a sketch is a MUST for this one!



I LOVE this photo of Isabel and Billy.  They are such good buddies and have so much fun together.  I feel a bit left out, I must admit, from time to time when we go places just the three of us.  Often I start off with them and then end up hanging back and taking some photos.  Usually Isabel runs and gets me, though, so she can hold BOTH of our hands.  I love my sweet girl and I love that she has such a good relationship with her daddy.  I definitely needed the sketch above to pull off this triangle challenge.

That's a nice sketch and you did a great job with you take. Very striking. I also needed a sketch to begin mine!

Good for you for taking up the challenge - I think I only use triangles in banners too. I like the playful edge they give your page.
