September 2017 Foodie Challenge - WINNER!

Postby rachel0017 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 8:34 am

Congratulations to this month's winner as chosen by random.org: #17, keatonsgtgram! Thank you so much to everyone who participated!

It’s September, and kids all over the country have either recently returned to school or are preparing to return very soon. Therefore, this month’s challenge will be titled An Ode to School Lunch.

Recipe (Must include AT LEAST THREE elements):

Lunchables: These convenient but questionable lunches contain all the foods compartmentalized in a tray, so on your page arrange some of the elements (photos, embellishments, or a combination of the two) in a grid.
 
Pizza: Remember these small rectangles that resembled cardboard? In their honor, use chipboard anywhere on the page.

Mac & Cheese: Use the golden yellow color of mac & cheese (as much or as little as you want) somewhere on your layout.

Milk: Ah, the impossible-to-open milk containers. To remember the struggle, use the word “impossible” in your title.
 
What's for Dessert?: Brownies. If I ever got dessert from the cafeteria as a kid, it was always a brownie. To get the bonus this month, use the deep brown color of the brownie as the predominant color (more than 50%) on your page.



Rules of our Kitchen:
1. Push yourself to make a design that's better than sliced bread!
2. Entries open to FRESH BAKED, BRAND NEW projects only - paper, digital, & card making.
3. May be blended with one other challenge that allows it.
4. Must pop out of the oven September 30th, at 11:59 PM PST.
5. One lucky chef, chosen at random, will receive a $5 ACOT gift card.
6. Up to 3 entries may be poured in per month.
7. A RAK is awarded to a second chef if there are more than 15 unique entries (not including bonuses) during the month.

Another from me, I have so many running quotes that I assumed I would have one with the word impossible in it, but I didn't, go figure. I did the other options: grid design for the photos, golden yellow banners and tag, chipboard word "Memories" and dark brown background paper for dessert. 

combined with the title challenge.

What a beautiful design! I love how you used muted tones of blue and red to really let the photos stand out. Thanks so much for playing along this month!

Wow! I LOVE the boldness of your background papers and how you turned them into large triangles. It's so graphic without being overwhelming. I might just be borrowing this design! Thanks for playing along this month!
