Sixteen - Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #480

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. We got a little taste of summer with nice - sunny - almost hot - days! The windows were open, lots of time spent outside...can't get any better than that!

It's the start of a new week and that means a new sketch is posted over at Scrapbook Challenges!

I changed things up a bit with this layout. For starters, I don't have a lot of photos that are good to trim down to a  2.25 x 2.25 size - I take way too many close ups I guess - so instead of three smaller photos, I chose to use some 2 x 2 squares from an older Simple Stories birthday snap pack. Since the 2 x 2 squares had an arrow pointing in a certain direction, I also flipped the sketch to make it work with the squares. 

This layout is of our youngest son, Shane, on his 16th birthday. He does not care for cake much, but he loves to blow out candles, so this year we decided to get his favorite chocolate donuts to serve as his cake. He loved it!

Head on over to the Scrapbook Challenges blog to see the layouts from the rest of the team. You have until the end of the month to play along with these challenges.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
