Throwdown Challenge Week #4

Well its Tami here with ya this week---R U READY for my THROWDOWN???

Well for my throwdown I want you to think Baked Spaghetti. Its a great hearty meal and not alot of ingredients required--but oh the possibilities to make it different everytime!

So we need some meat, noodles and sauce right? Then is when the fun begins... Did you know that I have kids that wont eat spinach So guess what when I make baked spaghetti I put spinach in there-great way to get them some green vegetable--BTW zucchini works great too.

So here we go with my take

Main ingredient--meat sauce = one photo
other necessaties-- noodles = layering
spices (gotta fix that jar sauce up)= embellie cluster
unexpected veggie= a non scrapbook related item
So we have the one photo-check
lots of layering-check
embellie cluster-check
non scrappy item---see the yellow strip with the numbers and some staples, well those are the dry cleaner tags they put on my husbands pants and of course I save them

So here's your challenge ladies
one photo
layering---must have at least 5 pattern papers on your lo
embellie cluster-must be more than 3 items
non scrappy related item--only one is required

I sure hope you will take this challenge and join us this week for thr Throwdown. You have until midnight on Thursday March 3rd to post your lo in the gallery. Have fun girls.

Throwdown Challenge Week #3

Here is my "Throwdown Challenge" to you know my style is a little different so this will be a challenge for most of you challenge is to have some White Space in your page my main ingredient!!

Then the spices you need to add are:

Misting ( can splatter paint if you do not have mist)

Using a mask (can cut out anything to use as the mask or lay anything on you page to give you an outline of somthng for the design)

Doodling (can be as simple as lines or writing yout title with a pen or drawing a picture on your page)Just have fun and be creative on your page ...let the artist in you come out!!!

Here is my example ...I used this month Memorable Seasons kit that you can order every month ..I cut out a journaling block and then misted around it with two different colored mist, then doodled around them, doodled the white & black scalloped edge and then my "white space" is under the journaling blocks ...thanks for looking!!

News from Memorable Seasons

It's my week to post here at Memorable Seasons and I also have the honor of choosing a layout of the week from Gallery entries at the Memorable Seasons forum.  Yee Haw!

I always have so much fun looking through all the projects in the Gallery and I have to admit, it's even more fun when I get to choose a special layout to showcase at our LOTW thread in the forum too.  This week is made extra special for me too since we are in the middle of our fantastic 2nd Annual Scrapbook Throwdown (you can get the "Lowdown on the Throwdown at this link right here), I won't be posting a challenge here at the blog this week.... SO,  instead I have the honor of showcasing the Layout of the Week I selected right here at the Memorable Seasons blog.  How cool is that?! 

The layout is titled Santa Paws and it was created by Susan (susanahern).  You can see it in the Memorable Seasons Gallery right here. But I also want to show it to you right here...

I was drawn to the clean, classic lines of this beautifully composed layout...and that machine stitching that frames the so darling photo of Molly is extra yummy!  While Molly may not have enjoyed wearing her Santa hat... she sure is cute in it and this layout is a real winner in my book! I hope that you all have an opportunity to stop by the forum and leave Susan some love about her adorable layout!

Before I close I also want to remind you that you have until Thursday (February 17) to get in on this week's Throwdown challenge hosted by Jen! Check it out at this link right here!  And hey... even if you don't get in on our challenge this week... we've got lots more challenges to come and I just wanna know... are you ready for a Throwdown?? :-)

The Scrapbook Throwdown Has Begun!!

Are you ready to Throwdown with the Memorable Seasons DT gang?! The first Throwdown Challenge has been issued! And it comes from yours truly.

Today I've cooked up one of my specialties and I hope you like it!


My main ingredient is a layout with clean lines, centered and balanced. And then I added my special seasonings that include: 3 matted photos in a row, lots of inked edges, and a punched border to taste!

And now your challenge is to go into your scrappy kitchens and work to re-create your version of my special entree. You will want to use the same main ingredient as well as the special seasonings that I used. But then you can show us what type of chef you are by adding in your own special seasonings to make it your own. Have fun with it and be sure to taste test it along the way!!

And just for fun: I've also added in some secret spices that I'm not at liberty to share! :wink: See if you can guess what those spices are and use them in your layouts too! I'll let you know if you got them right after you post your layout.

You have until Thursday, February 10th at midnight to get your layout done for this challenge, loaded into the gallery and linked up here. If you do, your name will be entered in for a random prize drawing. The next throwdown will be up on Friday, February 11th.
