Make Up Monday December 19, 2011

Are you ready for Christmas yet? We're definitely in the spirit on the Cookin' Up Scrapbook Creations forum! All of our Blue Plate Special challenges can be adapted to holiday scrapping, card making or gift giving, and many of our Master Chef Challenge Team and forum members are doing just that!

We've been revisiting challenges from throughout 2011 this month and putting our own "twist" on there. Here's a recap of the past week's challenges:

Last Tuesday, Nicole challenged us to use some type of mesh -- scrapping mesh, dry wall tape, an onion bag, anything we could find -- and gave us this example:

On Wednesday, Tamara brought us a challenge to use hat pins. Here's her layout:

Bev's Thursday challenge gave us flowers and bling! Here is her example:

On Friday, Jan focused on distressing and shared her layout:

Amy brought us the Saturday sketch and this example:

On Sunday, Tamara brought us a challenge to use banners OTHER than the traditional triangle shape; she used hearts:

And this past week, we had TWO Hors d'ouevres Tray challenges! The first was from our December Chef of the Month, Rebecca. She challenged us to decorate a purchased ornament, and gave us these examples:

And just a few minutes ago, the Master Chef Challenge Team posted the December "Scraplift a Member" challenge. We scraplifted this beautiful layout by forum member Melody Miller:

These are just one week of our Blue Plate Special challenges -- there is a new one each day except Monday (and occasionally on Monday too!) A layout, two cards or another project will count for each challenge.

If you complete 15 or more of the December challenges by January 3, your name will go into the drawing for the Dessert Tray prize -- and this month it's a gift certificate generously provided by our friends at Scraptastic Club -- check out their amazing kits!

And please be sure to join us on the Cookin' Up Creations forum every day for conversation, scrapping, challenges and friendship!

Have a great countdown-to-Christmas week!
