Make Up Monday -- 05/20/2013

Good morning! It's another Make Up Monday at Cookin' Up Creations . We've been celebrating "Spring Into Summer" on the forum with our challenges. There's still time to play!

Here's a recap of last week's Blue Plate Special challenges:

On Technique Tuesday, in honor of the weather being kissed by the sun (at last!) Cassy shared an embossing/ink stamp "kissing" technique for us to try. She provided a tutorial link and these cute examples:

On What's New Wednesday, Michelle spring-cleaned her stash and found buttons -- lots of buttons. She challenged us to use at least 9 buttons on our project. Here are the two fun cards she made:

Next, it was Toss Up Thursday with Jo. She challenged us to "brush up" on our projects by using paint on the edges and by hand or die cutting our own title. Here is her lovely example:

On Focus Friday, Jan noticed that we're all pulling out our bright-colored and patterned t's and capris now that warm weather is here. She challenged us to mix it up by using at least three different patterned papers from three different manufacturers on our projects. Here's her beautiful layout:

For Sketchy Saturday, Annie did some spring cleaning and challenged us to use our scraps of paper and bits of washi, leftover embellishments and what not. She also used this sketch from PageMaps:

And here's Annie's beautiful layout:

And for Sunday's Inspiration, Barb found inspiration in her favorite flowers, the lilies that are blooming in her home area right now. Her favorites are the pink ones, like these --

She drew from the pinks for her layout and even had a photo of bouquets of -- you guessed it! -- lilies:

There's still time to join in the May challenges. The Master Chef Challenge Team will present new challenges through May 25, and you have until June 3 to finish them. EACH completed challenge earns you ONE chance in the May prize drawing. So come on over and SPRING INTO SUMMER with us!
