Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #290

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  It was great to celebrate and have a turkey dinner and all the trimmings.  I never get tired of turkey and think I could eat chicken and turkey every day, but my husband prefers beef so I try to cook beef once a week.  As I am following Weight Watchers, I tried to lighten up all my trimmings and still make it tasty.  With just a little planning, it really did work!  So far I have lost 16 pounds and I thought as I was putting the turkey in the oven to roast, that it was ironic that the turkey weighed 16 pounds.  So I look at it as I have lost a turkey so far in this weight loss journey.  Hahaha!   I still have about 3 more turkeys to lose and the doctor will be happy!

Anyway, on to the subject of's Monday and that means that Scrapbook Challenges has posted a new sketch to check out.  I really enjoyed working with this sketch.  I think it came together quite well and I like the negative space.

It was a layout on my husband and son when we went to the Scirocco Golf Club for a  Father's Day dinner last year.  I used the Happy Days collection by Echo Park.  I love the retro feel of these papers.

I hope you can play along with us.  Here are the  sketches:
