Hello and welcome to my challenge! I picked this one because my birthday is next week on the 25th. I will be 29. Again. My son's birthday was a couple days ago on the 12th and he turned 16. Next week on my birthday I will have a new birthday kit called Sweet 16! For your challenge, you will have to pick some gifts to create your layout! Because gifts are awesome! (Gifts are from It's My Birthday Boy and Girl kits.) First, pick a theme for your page. Then pick 2 gifts of items to add to your page. Repeats are ok. If you have to use 5 flowers, you can use the same flower 5 times or 5 different flowers, or any mix to equal 5. Templates are ok to use if you can find one to suit your list.
