July CC Challenge Reveal

I am sooo excited to reveal this month’s Certified Celebrator Challenge!!
This is something near and dear to my heart, in fact it’s a challenge I seem to always be facing myself! So this month as I was contemplating what the theme of the challenge should be, it hit me! I just KNEW this would be a topic that EVERYONE would love and benefit from as we all share our ideas and entries for the challenge.

Without further ado… I present to you the July Certified Celebrator Challenge Theme:

HALFWAY HOMEMADE RECIPES

Yesss! That’s right! Let’s all create and share our best halfway homemade masterpieces! I don’t know a SINGLE person who could not use more of these quick and easy recipes in their lives, so I know we will all be on watch as participants post their ideas and photos!

Now, if you’re new around this blog, first of all – Welcome! We are SOOO happy that you stopped by, and we hope you find something that will keep you coming back! If you aren’t familiar, we are in love with what we call Halfway Homemade Recipes. These dishes may look like they took hours of slaving away in the kitchen to prepare, BUT they are deceivingly quick and easy to whip up! Halfway Homemade masterpieces are actually made up of a few grocery store items combined with a couple additional ingredients to create a dish that no one has to know isn’t completely homemade!

Challenge Tips:

– Think Creatively! You want an idea that is unique and will stand out!
– No more than 5 total ingredients. (It’s not really simple if there are 17 different ingredients :/ right?!)
– Get a nice clear, bright photograph of your project entry. If there is one thing I have learned in growing my brand, you want to put the best image of your project forward so people can really see the best display of your product and talent! If your photo is dark or blurry, that is not a true reflection of your creation!
– Post with #CCChallenge by July 27th
