I have the honor of bringing you the first Make Up Monday of 2012. We ended the old year and brought in the new with some awesome challenges.
Last Tuesday, Jan brought us a sanding technique. She made this great card to demonstrate:
Karen's Wednesday challenge was to use stick pins on our layout, card or project. Here is one of her lovely examples:
Tamara brought us the Tutorial Thursday challenge. She used her own handwriting on her title for this layout:
Friday's Focus, brought to us by Sandy, challenged us to use two or more different alphas in our titles. Here is her layout:
Our Chef of the Month, Rebecca, brought us the final Sketchy Saturday -- and the final Blue Plate Special! -- of 2011, using this sketch by team member Sandy:

Amy rang in the New Year with the challenge to weave a background with leftover strips of paper. It was a great way to introcue our January theme of "Out With the Old -- In With the New", which focuses on using our stash. Here is her innovative example:
If you complete at least 15 of the December Blue Plate Specials, your name will go into a drawing for a $20 gift certificate from the Scraptastic Kit Club. Jessica has some fantastic kits, and the new January one will be posted soon; surely a prize worth trying for! You have until Friday, January 6 to complete and post your December challenges.
Meanwhile, the January challenges have begun! You can check them out each day at the Cookin' Up Scrapbooking Creations Forum. The January prize will be announced soon. We also will have another exciting announcement -- the Winter 2012 Master Chef Challenge Team will be revealed!
Don't miss the fun. Head on over to Cookin' Up Creations forum today!
