Weekly review October 13-17

A new week of Blue Plate Special challenges starts today on the Cookin' Up Creations forum. Meanwhile, here's a quick recap of last week's challenges. October's theme is "Across the Miles", and our challenge team is finding inspiration in places both near and far.

Tamara presented Meatloaf Monday's challenge. She asked us to include a halo,  scrap about somewhere fun, and add a bit of advice or a personal thought to our project. Here is her layout, featuring images from Belize:

On Taco Tuesday, Beth gave us a fun sketch and asked us to include photos from our own town. Here is her layout:

Jan's Soup of the Day choice from our gallery was this lovely layout by member Patti:

As with every Soup of the Day layout, she asked us to be inspired by Patti's example and to scraplift it in some way.

Take Out Thursday's challenge was broCassy. She asked us to use maps to make embellishments for our projects. She used butterfly punches to punch shapes from old maps and used them on this layout:

And on Potluck Friday, Barb asked us to use our stash and to create a layout with one of our favorite characters or celebrities. She gave us this layout featuring Mary Poppins at Walt Disney World:

Please join us on the forum for this week's new set of challenges! You will find a new challenge every day, Monday through Friday.

LOTW - Patti (ksj351) - 10/15

This week I chose this layout by CUC member Patti (ksj351).  What I love about this layout.......and so many other layouts of Patti's is her ability to tie everything together.

This particular layout is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.  See the beautiful crown on the dogs head?  Now take a look at the die cut and feather at the bottom left of the photo.  See what I mean.  And if that wasn't enough, she went on to add a little bling to really make her layout sparkle.  

Congratulations Patti on LOTW!!!  If you would like to see more of Patti's work you can visit her gallery HERE.

Weekly recap 10/6 to 10/10

This week we continued to travel ACROSS THE MILES.
On Monday we went to the beach with Jan and she challenged us to use colors you would see on a beach. I would also like for you to use something to represent pebbles on a beach, a pop of yellow for the sun and stripes like you would see on a beach chair or cabana.   She shared this page.
On Tuesday, we headed to Disney's Animal Kingdom with Cassy and our challenge is to include some animal pattern and use this sketch to create a layout, project, etc using this sketch. 
On Wednesday, Barb featured Lori's page as pick for the week.  Barb challenged us to use Lori's layout as inspiration. I also want you to include something you think of as "down on the farm" or "rural".   Here is Lori's page and Barb's.
And today, I took us to Six Flags with my page.  I want you to use buttons and a punch on your page.
