THE FIRST THREE CHALLENGE

Cookin Challenge 1 –Dessert
Show eating them, making them, preparing the ingredients, or the ingredients themselves.

Cookin Challenge 2 --Cooking out of doors
The concept is to show how you celebrate cooking out of doors, be it grilling, tailgating, picnicking, etc.

Cookin Challenge 3 -- Sides
For this challenge, think about a side dish that is unique to your family. Does one particular person make this dish? Celebrate the ingredients with the recipe, or show that person creating the dish, or present us with the final food product!

COOKING CHALLENGE 2010

I just join a cooking challenge with my friends over at Creative scrapbooking Divas. This challenge is the prefect time for me because I prepare all my favorite recipes for the up coming Holiday Season.
The purpose of this challenge for a layout or mini of any size is to celebrate your favorite desserts--eating them, making them, preparing the ingredients, or the ingredients themselves. If anyone would like to join in just post your recipes and photos here if you are a crafter I would love to see your layouts and completed book. Keep in mind; if you are completing this challenge, it’s for your end of the year book, you want to keep sizes and colors consistent for a unified recipe book project.

Diva of the Month

Our November Diva of the Month is a very active and supportive member at CSDivas! Since Audrey joined CSDivas she has been a faithful player and very dilligent in following the Divas Getting Organized challenge. She is a very creative and fun Diva! Please help me welcome Audrey as our Diva of the Month for November


What a surprise thank you Diva’s for selecting me.  I was born and raised in Sunny Southern California and have been scrapbooking for over 12 years now. Starting off with my grandchildren’s photos, after having them sitting for years with few people to share them with.  I have been a stay at home wife/grandmother since 1994 after quitting my job of 29 years to adopt and raise my 5 grandchildren. This changed my job to picking up and delivering kids from school and their many respective sporting events through out the years.  The job of a grandmother is never finished as I now pick up and deliver my great-granddaughters to and from preschools, kindergarten, and dance classes. In addition to scrapbooking I love to cook for crowds, creating or trying new recopies’ keeps my creative mind busy in all I do. Yes, I am a Scrapbooking Diva I found enjoyment in using photos to share the stories of our lives in hopes to inspire many live long after I'm gone.

There are lots of holiday’s traditions that are practiced this time of the year, so let’s start this season of with a holiday layout page. My challenge for you is to create a layout page sharing one of your family traditions. Include a journal box telling about your tradition.
I have a very nice RAK to give away, just post your layout here, you have the until  November 30 to post your layout
Here is my sample:
