June OUAS Sketch Challenge

I can't believe it has been a year since I was invited to be part of a new sketch challenge blog by my good friend Nadia. I was so thrilled and excited for her. OUAS has grown to be one of the most popular scrapbook challenge blog available online. With an amazing DT line up, the challenges were very inspiring and motivating. I am honored to be part of its growth.

Even though this would be my last challenge participation as an OUAS DT, I will surely play along with the challenges. I will miss my other DTs there but also excited to see a great line up of DTs that will continue to surprise the followers with their amazing interpretation of the monthly challenges.
The theme of this challenge is BIRTHDAYS

We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "BIRTHDAYS" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine. 

Ideas for Journalling:most memorable birthday celebration for you or anyone in your family, the last birthday you celebrated and tell us your thoughts on turning this age, your child's/other family member's birthday and your thoughts on their age, a birthday that was a turning point in your life and your excitement/fears or other thoughts you had, an upcoming birthday for you or anyone and your thoughts, the best birthday present you ever received/gave and why?. You can also base your layout on a non - person birthday. This means your birthday theme can be based on : a pet, a business venture, a milestone anniversary etc etc. Its up to you how you interpret "BIRTHDAYS
