Chess Board Birthday


Moving along on my 2009 scrapbook. While visiting my family in Ohio in June, we got to celebrate my nephew's 10th birthday. My sister created a chess board cake complete with chess pieces on top!

I struggled a bit with the placement of the squares (for the chessboard background). I finally realized that once I have the square in place, that I should 'lock' that object, so that it didn't move while creating the rest of the squares.
Thanks for looking!
