We Have a Recipe Challenge For You!!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Hello everyone, it's me Debbie.  I want to welcome you back to Frosted Designs.  I'm so excited to host this week's challenge.  I love to incorporate a lot of elements in my layouts.  If you haven't stopped by my blog, you can check it out here.  I thought I would spice things up a bit this week and throw a recipe challenge!  Who doesn't like a good list of ingredients to choose from to make that perfect layout, card or project?  Well, I have a list of ten ingredients for you to choose from.  I chose to use all ten, but to qualify for this week's challenge you must use 5 of the ingredients on your project. 

Here is a list of the ingredients:
1.  Punch or punches
2.  Felt
3.  Ribbon
4.  Pink, blue or purple
5.  Flowers
6.  Banner
7.  Bird
8.  Buttons
9.  Butterflies

I found these pictures of my kids back from 1992.  I love how silly they were in the pictures and all I could think about was be happy!

Here is what the rest of the Design Team did with this Recipe Challenge....

Joni used some My Minds Eye (BLUE-1) papers.  Her title is a BANNER (2) strung together with RIBBON (3).  She has some BIRDS (4) across the very top right and an owl at the lower left.  She has BUTTONS (5) in several places & has a FLOWER (6) die cut above her journal box.

Barb had so much fun doing this layout of her daughter in Chicago that before she knew it, she had used 8 of the 10 challenge items! 1. banner, 2. butterflies, 3. color, 4. felt, 5. glitter, 6. flowers, 7. punch, 8. ribbon!

Erika reported, "this challenge really streched my imagination,  just when I thought I had 5 I realized I had taken something off. Luckily, I had so many choices it really made my layout fun to do!"  The final count is punches, flowers, glitter, buttons a butterfly and pink.  Pebbles paper line lent itself beautifully to the fun feel of this not so traditional birthday celebration!
