Shout Out To Our Fabulous Designers-Product Request

22 January 2015 - 12:45 PM

Dear Fantabulous SG Designers: 


I have come to the realization that I need some more recipe card templates and other recipe and kitchen "things".  Then, I thought...maybe other members feel the same way.  I know you all are always open to suggestions, thoughts and ideas.  I love that we as members can give you a shout out and you always listen.  I think this is amazing and it's something I love about our amazing purple place.


Thanks for listening!

Right now!!  Hurry!  Grab your cell phone.  What is the LAST photo you took?  I love the convenience of always having a camera with me.  Um, anyone remember what we did without them??  My photo is of my newly painted toes in flip flops (it's winter in Missouri!).  It was prompted by a random text I sent to a friend.  Then, I took picture-proof to send to her, all while I was at the grocery store.  My toes were COLD!

I think we have a lot of opportunities to snap photos of "every day stuff" that we never would capture if we had to bring out "the big camera".  I quite often snap a photo of something quirky while I'm out and about that makes me think of a family member or friend.  I send it to them and we get a laugh.  This never would have happened before cell phone cameras. 

Your challenge is to create a layout using the LAST photo on your cell phone and tell the story behind it.  Be sure to include all the details of why you took the photo and it's significance.  I can't wait to see your layouts and hear your stories!!  (This photo needs to be different than the everyday photo you snapped yesterday for the Jumpstart January challenge.) 


Please post your completed layouts in the NL Challenge Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

January Recipe Swap 2015

18 January 2015 - 08:26 PM

We have had a beautiful warm day here.  Is it really winter in Missouri?  It was almost 60!  Is it warm where you are??


This month's recipe swap theme is SOUP.  I've been eating a lot of soup lately so this seems fitting.   I like being able to make a big ol' pot and eat on it for a few days!  Please share your tried and true soup recipes with us!


Thank you for all your suggestions for recipe swap themes!  Look for them in the coming months!!  If you missed giving your thoughts, check in here:  2015 Recipe Swap Suggestions

  • It is easiest for me if you use your name or user name + the Recipe name (SodScrap_YummyFood) as the file name on your recipe. (I may change it to make it easier for me to track if you don't.)

I have never been one to set New Year's resolutions.  They just seemed, well, too much.  One word...more my speed!  A word that just speaks to you, a word that inspires and motivates you?  A word that just pops up every time you turn around?  THIS might be your word of the year.  One word that creates a vision for your future. 


Thinking of your one word, it's time to turn it into a layout.  Your challenge is to create a layout including your one word and it's definition.  You can use the dictionary's definition or your own definition or what it means to you.  In the process of creating your layout, use two different templates.  You can choose any combination of templates:  Paper, Layout, Word Art, Alpha or Embellishment.  You can choose to include photos or not.

Please post your completed layouts in the NL Challenge Gallery and post a link back in this thread.
