sibling selfies

Hello and Happy July!
Today is the first of the month so that means we have a new sketch up at Stuck?!  This one is all about triangles.  I've noticed it's been all the rave lately.  I've replaced the triangles with diamonds, but it's still considered the same, right?  Also with this month's sketch we have partnered up with Frosted Designs and they are requesting the use of punches or die cuts on our layouts.
Here is my take.

These selfies were taken in 2004, when selfies weren't so cool, or should I say weren't so popular.  When my daughter got a camera in her hand, watch out!  Her brother Ryan was usually the one whom had to suffer.  She loved, and still loves, to take selfies.

My triangle background paper used for this layout is by Heidi Swapp.  The diamond die cuts are from my December 2013 Studio Calico kit.  I could never quite figure out how to use them in a layout and when I seen Laura's sketch and the request from Frosted Designs to use die cuts they instantly came to mind!  I really like how it turned out.

Here are a few close ups for better detail.

Now it's your turn!  Go have some fun with it!  Make it your own and be sure to upload before July 29 for a chance to win some fantastic prizes, and if you used punches or die cuts be sure to link up at Frosted Designs too for another chance to win.  For further details and tons of inspiration be sure to stop by Stuck?! Sketches.  And now for the sketch.

That's it for today.  I hope I have inspired you in some way.  Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping!
