Hello! We apologize for the delay in posting Make Up Monday. Our gallery was down yesterday, which meant that none of our photo links would show up. But the gallery's back, and here we are!
This month on the Cookin' Up Creations forum, we've been celebrating the return of warm weather and the anticipation of even more warmer weather, with our Spring Into Summer theme. Here's a look at the challenges for the past week:
On Technique Tuesday, Tamara introduced us to a new way to stamp on our projects -- with the edge of an empty toilet paper roll and paint! Here's her cute example:
On What's New Wednesday, Cassy celebrated spring with a challenge to use rainbow and woodgrain themed products together. Here is her beautiful example:
For Toss Up Thursday, Michelle celebrated longer daylight hours by asking us to use light and dark papers together, with -- you've got it! -- more light than dark. Here is her lovely example:
Friday's Focus came to us from Jo, who asked us to use chipboard elements on our projects. Here is her beautiful example:
Jan brought us a sketch from Liz Chidester (and a photo of her brand new twin grand-nieces -- how special is that!?!?!?) for Sketchy Saturday. Here is her adorable layout featuring those precious baby girls:
Those are the last of the May Blue Plate Special challenges. The deadline for completing all May challenges is June 3, and EACH completed challenge earns you an entry into the Dessert Tray prize drawing.
Stay tuned for a special month-long celebration. Cookin' Up Creations is celebrating our FOURTH birthday with a BIRTHDAY BASH throughout June! There will be a new birthday-themed Blue Plate Special challenge each day, June 1-30 -- including Mondays! There also will be some fun games and other surprises -- and PRIZES! This celebration has been a year in the making -- you won't want to miss it!
