March DT Challenge

Hi everyone :) its my turn to host the monthly contest here at Everything Scrappn....

I am so excited to see Spring ring forth. I can't wait for sunny days, flowers, and gentle spring rains. This month's challenge is all about the coming Spring. You can create a layout or an altered piece.

First, I want to see flowers, at least 3, but not plain or simple flowers. You can either create your own flowers (from fabric, paper, felt, etc. whatever you wish) or if you chose to use a Prima type flower, you need to alter it somehow to make it uniquely yours.

Second, I want to see the color blue on your project. Something blue that will remind us of Spring rains that nourish the soil.

Last, you will need something yellow or gold to represent the warm Spring sunshine on your project.

I can't wait to see what you create and hopefully Spring will join us all soon!"

Many of the Design Team Members will be showcasing Webster's Pages products in their sample creations for the March 28th contest. You can view the stock of Webster's Pages that Everything Scrappn' has to offer by clicking here. Participate in the challenge for a chance to win a Prima Artistry Flowers Mini Tin. This tin is filled with around 25 Prima flowers in different sizes.

Here's my example for you called "flower child" I made two rolled paper flowers and I altered two white prima flowers with stamps, stazon and glimmer mist.
For my 2nd project this month I created easter baskets out of the Basic Grey Nook & Pantry line. I also used a few of the "woolies" flowers from the line




Don't forget to "hop" around to all of the DT blogs

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to link up your work here in the comments by midnight Sunday, April 11th for your chance to win the flowers :)

Very pretty & creative. Good luck!

Adrienne I'm not sure why your post didn't show up then both showed up... Maybe Heather had to approve the comment for some reason instead of it auto posting.

Lovely project. Great flowers - very creative. Adorable photos & I love the topic

Adrienne Pierce said...

Yes, I have to approve all comments. There is entirely to many spammers. It took so long because I didn't have internet. Sorry.

Also this challenge will end Friday the 9th midnight eastern time.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.

Do you have a quick recipe? email me hgturner@everythingscrappn.com
