LM #229 - Made With Love

Good Sunday morning! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. We are in the middle of a 4 day weekend - and enjoying every minute of it!

There is a fun new challenge up today at Lasting Memories - my favorite - a sketch challenge! The theme for this month is Food For Thought, so your layout needs to be food related.

Here is the sketch:

and here is my layout based on the sketch:

supplies used - Patterned Paper - Carta Bella - It's a Celebration, alpha die - Lawn Fawn - Cole's ABC's.

I've flipped the sketch to make it work better with my photos.

This layout is of my husband making my birthday cake this past year. The journaling says, "Since Abby has moved out of the house Scott has taken over the responsibility of baking my birthday cake. He has always been a good cook, so it's no surprise that he can bake a darn good cake, too!"

I know it's hard to see in the photo of the cake, but he made a big "44" in the middle of the icing. He didn't have to get that "fancy" with his decorating!

I'm also linking this up over at Crash Your Stash to help me keep track of my 2015 Project 50. (27/50)

Now head on over to the Lasting Memories blog and see how the rest of the design team has used the sketch. I'm sure you'll be inspired to play along!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
