Make Up Monday -- 08/06/2012

Welcome to Make Up Monday!

Our Master Chef Challenge Team members have been working extra-hard this past week to bring you some fun and fantastic challenges. On Technique Tuesday, Tamara finished July's "Nursery Rhymes" theme with inspiration from "The Farmer in the Dell". Since the farmer kept his animals in a barn, her challenge was to use a photo with a building in it, and to use hidden journaling. Here is her example:

We started August on What's New Wednesday with a great new theme -- "Amusement Park"! Cassy started us off with a challenge to use a fresh color palette that brought the bright colors of the Midway to mind. Here is her example, using the popular new "viewmaster reels" that she made herself:

(You can visit Cassy's blog for a tutorial on how to make those reels)

ON Toss Up Thursday, Annie brought us "Tickets, Please!" with a tutorial link on how to make our own ticket embellishments. Here is her link; and here are her stamped, colored and embellished examples:

Friday's Focus was upon the banners and flags that we see at amusement parks, brought to us by Jo. She created a double-page layout with lots of banners as her example:

Sandy's Sketchy Saturday challenge paid homage to the autographs that children seek from the  many costumed characters in amusement parks. She provided a sketch and challenged us to use handwriting on our layout.  Here is her example:

Our Guest Chef of the Month, Brenda, brought us Inspiration Sunday and asked us to create a project about something that inspires us. She gave us a layout about her grandchildren:

We hope our Blue Plate Specials inspire you! For more challenges (a new one every day!) and fun, join us on the Cookin' Up Creations forum.

Have a great week!
