It's all up to you. For the technique: I would like you to cut out the motif from pattern paper and use it on your project

Sketchy Saturday 5/24/14 by Tamara
Her word is Magic. Simply use this sketch to create your masterpiece and then add your own kind of magic to it. Be sure to share with us what your special magic is. I did a title page for my grandson's baby book. I added some dazzling glitter or magic to help it sparkle and shine.

Good morning scrappers! Here's a little recap of the challenges from last week.

On Tuesday Beth started the week off with the word, TEACH and challenged us to use the distress technique and twine on our projects.

Here is Beth's layout of her two older pups, Sasha and Brie teaching her new pup, Lily some bad habits.

Great job Beth!

On What's New Wednesday, Annie challenged us with the word DREAM and shared several wonderful samples to inspire us.

On Toss Up Thursday Jan (that's me) followed up with the word HAPPY and challenged us to use it on our projects.

Here are some older samples of cards from me.

 On Focus Friday Barb challenged us to use CIRCLES on our projects and shared this wonderful sample to inspire us
On Sketchy Saturday Bev shared this sketch.

 And this beautiful sample.
 And Ms. Tamara finished the week off with Sunday Inspiration and the word FAMILY.

And here is another wonderful layout that Ms. Tamara shared of her daughter's family.
Hope you were able to play along with last weeks challenges. If not you still have until June 5th to do so.

Layout of the week 5/7/2014 -- CASSY!

When I went into the Cookin' Up Creations gallery this morning, this sweet layout by CASSY (AlteredDiva) caught my eye.

 I love the composition, the colors and those adorable photos. I also love Cassy's layering and the way she used her embellishments. Cassy has a scrapbooking style that I've always admired, and this layout really showcases that.

You can find Cassy's layout here. Please stop by and leave her some love.

Congratulations, Cassy, on LAYOUT OF THE WEEK!

And while you're there, check out this month's WORD UP challenges on the Cookin' Up Creations  forum! We have a new challenge each day (except Mondays). This month, each challenge centers around one word. Every completed challenge earns you one entry into the May Dessert Tray prize drawing. So come on over and join in the fun!

Make Up Monday 5/5/14

Welcome to make up Monday here is a review for the past week.
Technique Tuesday 4/29/14 By Tamara
Y is for "You"! That's right YOU! How many layouts have "you" in them? How often are we the one behind the camera? How can you make memories if you are not part of them? Todays challenge is to do a layout with a pic of You!! The technique for you to use is kind of a made up one.I want you to use a circle, a square and a triangle at least somewhere on your layout.

What's New Wednesday 4/30/14  by CherylO
Cheryl had  the letter  Z!!! I chose "zoo" but any animal will do. even an animal embellishment or pattern paper can be used, so more people can play!!! I did a layout with our 4 legged son Tucker.

Toss Up Thursday 5/1/14 by Larisa
The month of May  is Word Up! I got the letter S and chose to do Siblings. My  challenge was to use a stencil and scrap a photo of siblings.

Focus Friday 5/2/14 by Sherri Scraps
May is WORD UP! My word for you today is TRAVEL. Show me your pages where you are taking a trip or travelling away from home OR you can do like my page and use the word TRAVEL in your title. I made a travel cover page for a 2010 travel album. AND for focus Friday I want you to focus on fonts. Use 2 or more different fonts on your page.
Sketchy Saturday 5/3/14 by Altered Diva
Altered Diva's  word is CELEBRATE!! Show me your celebration, any celebration, and use this sketch as inspiration! This sketch came from Inspired Blueprints and is very versatile.
