Yesterday I shared with you my interpretation of the challenge. I have had lots of great feedback about the "Got G-A-S" layout!! Thank you sooo much for that!!! So today I want to share with the the FIRST entry in the challenge.

This Entry came from Lynn B. ~ Here is what she had to say about her layout:

Here is the scoop about my 2 page layout. It was supposed to be about "What's Cooking"... recipes, cooking pictures, etc, but all I could think about was "love and family in the kitchen" because I grew up in the kitchen.. my family always hung out in the kitchen and it's true of my in-laws also. We always hang out in the kitchen. The embellishments, stickers and papers on the page are all about cooking! Thus, you can't judge a book by it's cover!

The journaling reads:

One page: "Mom and Dad built our house at 33 Kakely Street in Albany, NY in 1957, shortly before I was born. We lived there all my life and spent most of the time in the kitchen. The appliances changed over the years and the tables and lights, but everything else stayed the same. This picture of Cyndy and Mom was taken in 2004 when I was home visiting. The picture of our clean kitchen was taken in 1990 shortly after we moved in our new house in Wellington. The picture of me at the kitchen sink the night of my 50th birthday party, 3/30/07."

Another page: "I have more memories in the kitchen than all other rooms put together! In fact, most times when we visit others, we still hang out in the kitchen. We cook, we eat, we talk or watch TV.. Food is love & so is the kitchen! The first picture of Ima and I was taken in 1989, one year after Bob & I got married. We were in the villa that I owned before Bob & I got together. The next picture was taken 11 years later, in 2000 in Ima & Abba's kitchen in Miami Gardens. We've been friends since the beginning! The third picture is of me 7 years later, in 2007. It was Thanksgiving at our house in Wellington, Florida. We had 27 guests for dinner that night and they were from 9 different countries!"


So what do you think??? PLEASE leave a comment in the comment section and let Lynn and I know what you think about her layout!!! I can't comment at this time as I don't want to influence my judges! Bahahaha!!! (Speaking of Judges - I will be announcing them next week!)

Thank you sooo very much Lynn for entering the Challenge!!! (Lynn actually entered two layouts so be watching for her other entry to be posted soon!!!)

Tomorrow I will feature another entry in the challenge!! Don't forget the DEADLINE is MONDAY, March 3rd at NOON eastern time!!! I will announce the winner on Wednesday March 5th!

Until Next Time!

Another great layout. I love the way you both had such strong journaling. That is my weakest point so I will work on that. I'd better get moving. HeeHee

Love this layout! I wish I could see it a bit bigger though. The journaling is great and I love the colors she used.

Guess I can't comment on how great this layout is because it's MINE!!! I sure do enjoy scrapbooking though and I love journaling too! I've never been at a lack of words! Thanks for your compliments. Lynn B
