:LAYOUT: 6 Candles

THIS birthday seems like it was just yesterday!!

I LOVED this close-up photo of my daughter (at 6) blowing out her candles on her birthday cake.

It's highlighted by leaving it full-size and matting it. I cropped the two supporting photos a bit and put them on an angle on each side.

The title is divided (the ‘6’ on the top left and ‘candles’ on the bottom) and I outlined the title letters to help them stand out a bit more against the bright background paper.

The little flower and chipboard grouping creates a visual triangle with the title elements.
