Make Up Monday -- March 19, 2012
We enjoyed another outstanding week of Blue Plate Special challenges last week here at Cookin' Up Creations! And as we complete challenges, we are gathering clues to solve the mystery "Who killed Mr. Boddy???" in CLUE -- the Scrap Game. Come and play along! You have until April 3 to complete the March challenges and solve the mystery.
We started out on Technique Tuesday with Jan's challenge to use the colors of the GLUE game board and to create a sunburst pattern on our projects. Here is Jan's beautiful example:
With a nod to "Mrs. White", Tamara challenged us on What's New Wednesday to use .... what else?? -- WHITE SPACE! -- and to scrap something new. She created this layout of her "new" grandson and his parents:
On Toss Up Thursday, Jo asked us to use the color red and to use an embellishment that we've owned for more than six months, in honor of "Miss Scarlett". Here is her beautiful layout:
Sandy turned her attention to the game board itself for "Friday's Focus". She challenged us to use at least three squares on our projects. She created this layout as an example:
On Sketchy Saturday, Patti asked us to examine the LAYERS of evidence and make sure our verdict STICKS ... by using layers and stickers along with the sketch. Here is her outstanding example:
We finished up the week with Rebecca's "Inspiration Sunday" challenge to create a project about someone playing a game. She created this game layout:
Remember .... there are a total of 15 clues to help you solve the murder mystery, but no one (except Tammy) knows which challenges will "give you a clue". So, the more challenges you complete, the more chances you have of getting clues and solving the mystery. There is a prize for the detective who solves the murder; and if you complete 15 or more challenges, your name goes into the drawing for this month's Dessert Tray prize.
So .... start scrapping, start sleuthing, and good luck to all!
