Circles, Squares, Diamonds, Triangles...............

Get out your compasses and set squares,the next challenge is up at Lets Get Shabby and it's all about Geometric Shapes......they appear to be the "in thing" at the moment,especially the hexagon.
Hop on over to the Lets Get Shabby blog and check out all the details for challenge #34
It was amazing to see how four people in the DT created with 'diamonds' so differently.I'd love to see what you can come up with too; it's a great challenge so I hope you can play along.

My choice of diamonds was an easy choice for me; I love them, and have used them a lot in other projects, but the other thing that influenced me was the diamond pattern on the sleeve of Indi's jumper:......doesn't she look like a little Eskimo.I love the diamond pattern that the buttoning on the chair makes and the beautiful Kaisercraft paper I've used for the background.
