Make Up Monday 9/3/2012

The Blue Plate Specials on the Cookin' Up Creations forum have been fantastic during the past week! We finished up our August theme, "The Amusement Park", during the first part of the week. 

On Technique Tuesday, Cassy gave us a color challenge combined with a herringbone technique. She made two beautiful cards as illustration:

Annie's What's New Wednesday challenge, she focused on park entrances. Here is her creative sample layout:

Jo's Toss Up Thursday challenge paid tribute to her parental efforts to "keep things even" among her children, making sure each had the same amount to spends, etc at the amusement park. Her challenge was to use more than two photos of the same size. She created this layout as an example:

Sandy's Focus Friday challenge featured that last mad dash to cram in all the rides, games and activities at the park. Her "no time to waste" challenge gave us three layouts, and we needed to scraplift one aspect from EACH one. Here's her lovely example:

Saturday was September 1 -- and with a new month, we started a new theme. The September theme is "Back to Nature -- The Great Outdoors". 

Michelle kicked off the September challenges on Sketchy Saturday with a PageMaps sketch and the challenge to use the word "Explore" in the title. Here's her example:

Barb's Sunday Inspiration challenge was to draw inspiration from sand and water. Here is her layout:

Join us on the forum and get in on the fun -- there's a new challenge each day! And if you complete at least 15 of the challenges for the month, your name goes into the drawing for a lovely prize. 

See you on the forum!
