Shine Bright . . . for Challenge YOUrself and AJJ!

 Hi everyone!  It's the 7th of July and time for a new reveal at Challenge YOUrself:

This month's theme (CY#91) and is all about using shapes:

Here is my take:
As you can see, my shape is triangles!  I featured a photo of my daughter, Anne and me on her graduation day and included a favorite photo of her with her best friends - they've been friends since kindergarten.   The papers and stickers are from the PinkFresh "Bloom Street" collection, which I absolutely love. 

Here are some different views:


 I am also entering my layout into this month's theme at Art Journal Journey Monthly:

This month is about the  Summer Countryside and is hosted by Alison at Words and Pictures.  When making my layout, I thought that the photo of Anne and Me on her graduation day depicted the summer countryside.  I used shapes to illustrate hills and valleys, and the sun, birds, flowers, and butterfly stickers to represent summer.  Thank you, AJJ and Alison for hosting this amazing theme!  I always enjoy entering AJJ!!

I also hope you get a chance to check out Challenge YOUrself this month.  I had lots of fun using shapes on my page!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Hugs!!!  Have a wonderful July everyone!
