Make Up Monday -- 04/08/2013

We hope you're enjoying "Around the World In 30 Days" with our Blue Plate Specials! Here's a recap of our itinerary so far:

Barb started us off on our journey in beautiful St. Croix. Her challenge was to celebrate the beautiful Caribbean waters and beach with sanding on the edges of our photos or paper and using the colors blue (for the water) and yellow (for the sunshine). Here is her sample layout:

On Wednesday, Tamara celebrated our around the world theme with a challenge to use circles on our projects. Here is her example:

On Thursday, we visited the beautiful Greek isle of Santorini with Cassy. She gave us a photo of the Santorini coastline for inspiration and created this example:

On Friday, Michelle reminded us that "getting there can be half the fun". She challenged us to use photos involving plane, train, auto or boat travel. Here is her example:

On Saturday, Jan provided us with a "road map", or sketch by which to navigate our project. Here is the layout that Jan created:

And on Sunday, we traveled to Luxembourg with Jo. She asked us to use the colors of the nation's flag (red, white and belgian blue) as inspiration. Here is her example:

Our around-the-world journey continues throughout April on the Cookin' Up Creations forum. There's still plenty of time to join us! The deadline for finishing the April challenges is May 1; and there's a new challenge each day, Tuesday through Sunday, through April 26. For every challenge that you complete, your name goes into the drawing for our Dessert Tray prize! So grab your passport, pack your bags and join us as we go "Around the World in 30 Days"!
