In the Spotlight!!

I'm in the spotlight at Oscraps and celebrating with a brand new kit, a freebie and a challenge to keep you scrapping all week long!

A Tasty Challenge

I currently have a very disorganized drawer in my kitchen dedicated to all the wonderful recipes that I have either written down, printed out, photocopied or ripped out of magazines. Worse yet, I have dozens more bookmarked on my computer, all still waiting to see the light of my kitchen lol. And then there are the recipes I remember from my childhood, the recipes that only come out to play during holidays and special occasions, the recipes I made as a newlywed and new mom years ago - recipes I want to remember, collect, continue to make and, of course, pass on to my own children.

Your challenge for this spotlight is to get started on putting together your very own personalized family recipe book or collection. Some of the recipes you choose to scrap might be new and represent changes you are making in your lifestyle, while others might be those you and your family have enjoyed and shared for years. Many of the recipes will inspire a story or memory that can be told alongside the recipe, while other recipes might have been lost or forgotten, but the memory and photos remain worthy of a layout.

A Dash of Inspiration

Any and all recipes are fair game in this challenge, the more the merrier!! But for those looking to include layouts that focus on making connections between a recipe and memories or stories of loved ones, here are a few ideas to inspire you:

1) Recipe + Biography
Connect a recipe to a person in your life - someone who is "famous" for preparing that recipe or someone who loves that recipe best. Scrap the recipe, but also include a biography of this person and how this recipe celebrates or reflects who that person is and their role in your life.

2) Recipe + Childhood
Connect a recipe to the time when you were a child or teenager. Scrap a memory (or memories) that this recipe inspires from that time period.

3) Recipe Constructed
This inspiration is not a traditional "food" recipe - think about a favorite activity you do yourself or with your family (past or present) and construct a "recipe" of "ingredients" that make this activity special or unique. A few examples - family movie night (ingredients: blankets, pillows, pjs, popcorn), visiting the beach (ingredients: towels, beach toys, sunburns, snacks), getting ready for 1st day back to school (backpacks, bus, lunch bags, hugs, tears). Write this up in recipe format (ingredients, directions, serves)!

4) Recipe + Culture
Connect a recipe to the country you live in (or lived in the past) or your cultural or religious background. Scrap the who, what, when & where of how this recipe helps you celebrate this part of your life.

5) Recipe + Holiday/Occasion
Connect a recipe to a favorite holiday (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving) or occasion (birthday, anniversaries, showers), celebrated in the past or present, and scrap about how this recipe helps you celebrate this wonderful time!

Here are some layouts to help inspire you
