A New Year, New Challenges!  Happy 2018!

 It's only January 3, but I've got two new challenges under my belt already.  I used some old photos -- the first trip to San Francisco we made with the boys.  Ben was still in a stroller.  :-D  We were living in So Cal, but drove up and used the folks farm outside Merced as home-base for our vacation day tripping.  Great times -- and here are two pages, companion pieces, inspired by two challenges from two different sites.

From Scrap and Chat comes Janet's angle/K challenge -- something straight up and down, one angled left, one angled right.  Here's our trip down Lombard St. -- I thought the challenge fit the street well. 

And from a new site for me, Sketch n Scrap , comes Cable Car Shift based on their first sketch for January.  I never knew that at the end of the line, they have to turn the cable car around for it go back up the hill -- and it's all done manually -- the guys come out and push it around on this lazy Susan kind of thing in the track.  Was very fun to watch.
