November 2017 Foodie Challenge - Updated with Winners!

Postby rachel0017 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 7:22 pm

Sorry for the late post, friends, but here are this month's winners! The winner of the $5 gift card is #11 - joannie! And, with 18 unique entries, we did a drawing for an RAK! The winner is #20 - shoorn! Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who played this month!

November seems an obvious time to center the Foodie Challenge around Thanksgiving, but what about a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving? That’s the recipe we’ll be working with this month!

Recipe (Must include AT LEAST THREE elements):
Two slices of buttered toast: Two photos, matted (you can have more than two photos, but must have at LEAST two)
Pretzel Sticks: At least three border strips (must be full page length)
Popcorn: Use foam dots to “pop” something off the page
Jellybeans: A handful of colorful enamel dots
 
What's for Dessert? (Bonus):
An ice cream sundae (vanilla ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top): “Top off” your page with something shiny or sparkly – glitter, jewels, gems, pearlescent paint, etc. Just point out what you’ve used so it doesn’t slip past me!

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 November 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.


Sample, using at least two photos, three border strips (washi at the bottom of the page) and the middle photo popped up.

This is great! I love how the bottom photo and the background paper are the same color. It almost looks like they're all one photo. What an amazing experience to document, though I wouldn't have thought the Amazon was so clay-filled! Thanks for doing our challenge this month, and getting the bonus as well!

What a beautiful Christmas layout! It totally gets me into the spirit! I love the trees you made and the border strips in the background are perfect. Bonus for you as well!

Beautiful! That's the only word! Beautiful layout, beautiful photos, and beautiful prom night attendees! I really love the curved and inked edges on your patterned paper. And, you're definitely earning the bonus for all the sparkle on this page!

Another from me

the butterfly's wings and the bug are popped on foam, and the dessert is the gem inside the butterfly and the liquid pearls inside the flower. (the other items should be obvious)
combined with the mood board.
