Anniversary Dinner: Menu Revealed!


Recommended Posts

UPDATED:  Check the first post below to find out the menu items that you will be using to create your Anniversary Dinner layout!

Anniversary Dinner Challenge (Recipe Layout Challenge):

You are invited to the Scrap Girls 16th Anniversary Dinner Celebration this Friday!  This is a special dinner, where you can eat as much as you want - you will be satisfied but never too full, and calories don’t count!  In preparation for our meal, we are ordering from the menu ahead of time, and then Friday morning I will reveal the ingredients for your layout, based on what you chose for your celebration dinner.  To get the most fun out of this challenge, post your meal choices in this thread by Thursday night (Eastern), before the ingredients for your layout are revealed Friday morning.  If you can’t post ahead of time, though, that’s OK, you can still participate in the challenge by completing a layout.  For your layout to count toward the prizes, post it in the Anniversary 2020 Gallery and then come back to this thread to leave a link to your layout.

Here are the rules for the Challenge Prizes:

  • Complete all 6 challenges and be entered into a drawing for a $40 gift card
  • Complete 4 challenges and be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card
  • Complete 2 challenges and be entered into a drawing for a $10 gift card
  • All layouts must be finished by Midnight ET Sunday, November 1st

Our available menu is below in the first post...

My choices are do-able, thankfully. :D (I was hoping it wouldn't turn out to require 20 photos with 10 papers, etc. lol) This should be fun. 

😄  I thought about throwing in hard things like that!  I decided to go easy on us all.

I have to bake some Halloween cookies after work this afternoon, and then I'll be working on my various layouts.  I might actually end up with real cookie crumbs in my keyboard... but that's not anything new.  😂

I was late to the party and had to order in a rush. I ordered very unhealthy, good thing no calories are involved. Or spills either, after a few glasses of  Sangria I spilled mocha on my Lo. Or maybe it was Espresso? So is it a scatter or a brush? Here's my LO Autumn Beauty and here's my menu:

Sangria:  one large photo
Calamari:  Blend two papers together, at least one must be a pattern/print
Pumpkin Cheesecake (with caramel drizzle):  Find or create a piece of word art for your page

Brick oven gourmet pizza: use 4 different embellishments, may duplicate
Peppermint mocha:  use sprinkles or a scatter on your page

Enjoyed having dinner with ya all. Same time next year?
