This weeks we are going to give you a choice of themes . . . well why not, it all adds to the fun! You can either follow this weeks named theme or follow a sketch. So firstly, the "named theme" is:
"Bermuda triangle"

We would like to see you anything triangular on your project. This could be triangular corners, bunting designs, harlequin patterned papers . . . to name but a few ideas. However, you could follow this triangular themed sketch instead:

Here is how the DT have interpreted this weeks themes:

Emma (Using a Penny Black stamp from Funky kits)

Pami(Gojuss girl image)

Alexis (CC Designs image)

Cyndi using "Witchy Bella" from Funky Kits

I'm Adela and I live in sunny Southern California with my husband and our two teenage girls! Crafting has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I love to sew, crochet, knit, draw, paper craft, stamp... I love anything related to crafting! With encouragement from many people, my love of paper crafting in 3D has led me to open an online shop which allows me to share some of my template designs. I feel so blessed and
I truly believe that God has given everyone their own special talents
and it is our privilege to share it with others.

Adela from Creations by AR has even got a FREEBIE section, so why not pop over and use one of the fab free templates and then join in with us on this challenge. Well the DT have been busy and heres what they have made:
