Today's Soup of the Day layout!

Each Wednesday, our Soup of the Day features one layout from our gallery. The challenge to our scrapbooking friends is to scraplift that layout.

This week, my Soup of the Day pick is this adorable layout by Cassy.

I loved Cassy's layers and all the "bits and pieces" she added to her layout. I also loved her use of pastels with punches of bright color. Here's my take on Cassy's layout:

Soup of The Day: 2/4/2015

Today's Challenge is to scraplift  a page I picked from Patti's Gallery.  An extra twist is to use an embellishment you love on the page. This will be the Layout of the Week as well.

My take on Patti's page is as follows:

For this challenge, you may make one layout; two cards, four artist trading cards; or an altered paper project. You may complete the challenge more than once, but each entry must be different. Please post your completed project in the gallery and in the Soup of The Day thread. You have until March 3 to complete any challenges.

Our FIRST February challenge!

Our weekday "Blue Plate Special" challenges are back! And no doubt about it --  in February, LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

The title of today's Meat Loaf Monday recipe challenge is "Warm and Fuzzy". For this challenge, I want you to include:

1) something that says "warm and fuzzy" to you -- a paper pattern, a texture, a photo, etc
2) a punched or die cut shape
3) a heart somewhere

For my layout, my "warm and fuzzy" something is a photo of my cat, Ed. I've used some punched circles, and I have heart patterned paper. Here's my layout:

For this challenge, you may make one layout; two cards; four artist trading cards; or an altered/paper project. You may complete the challenge more than once, but each entry must be different. Please post your completed project in our forum gallery and in this forum thread, OR on our Facebook community page. You have until March 3 to complete and post the February challenges.

Happy scrapping!
