Birthday dinner

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing a page about my Birthday dinner! 
We went to Benihana.  We hadn't been there for YEARS and we thought the kids would really enjoy watching the chef prepare the food on the hibachi.  It was lots of fun!
I used an old Stampin' Up! download called "spring to life" for the papers and just added some fun flowers to mimic cherry blossoms.  They are from a fun free download from Sahlin Studios called "So Grateful".  
If you haven't already, be sure to check out Sahlin Studios.  They have so many really cute downloads and lots of freebies too.  And if you like her Facebook page you get a free kit that is also super cute!  So Grateful I found that site!

 Here is my sketch.

 I had a lot to journal on this page and I thought it would be nice to go around the photos, just like I would if I were writing on a traditional page.  To do this I just make my text box go over the area that I want to write in, going right over the photos. 

 Next, as you are typing, be sure to actually hit enter after each line, to keep them were you want them.  Sometimes lines have a habit of shifting a bit if you don't do this.  Also add your spaces when you get to the photos or embellishments, in my case the flowers.  Some times it helps to just type it all out, get it the size you want, and then add your "enter" and "space"keys were appropriate.

Hope you like today's sketch!  If you make a page with it, I would love to see it!  feel free to share it on my Facebook page!
