Make Up Monday: March 7, 2011!

Hello Monday! Our March "Made About Sketches" is off to a great start with these Blue Plate Specials from last week! (Remember, each challenge this month will be based upon an accompanying sketch.)

On Technique Tuesday, Jenny kicked off the month with her tutorial on using our paints and masking tape to create a beautiful background like hers:

What's New Wednesday was "Sew Cute" with Cassy's challenge to use a sewing theme on our project. And just look at her adorable example:

On Transformation Thursday, Barb brought us a tutorial on transforming plain old chipboard into vintage elements, like this crackle painted frame:

Glitter was our Friday Focus, with Jo's challenge to add some sparkle to our projects. Here is her stunning example:

On Sketchy Saturday, Tamara shared the sketch that she used for this super cute layout:

And Inspirational Sunday came with a wonderful sketch presented by Jenny, along with the challenge to use a variety of edges on our project. And she gave us this wonderful example to get us started:

This week, we also have a special Hors d' ouevres Tray" challenge, presented by Jo. For this challenge, you may go back and do ANY challenge from a previous month that you wanted to do and just never completed by the deadline. Just tell us which challenge you are repeating and show us your creation. Jo revisited our Febgruary 5 sketch challenge for this layout:

You can find the sketches that inspired all of these wonderful projects by going here: "Mad About Sketches" continues all week long, with a new challenge (and a new sketch!) every day. The Blue Plate Special prize this month is this gorgeous kit, donated by Premier Scrapbook Designs:

To enter the drawing for this fabulous prize, just complete 12 of the Blue Plate Special Challenges and post them to the forum boards no later than April 2. Your name then will be entered into the drawing. Come on over to see what's cookin' -- we would love to have you!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
