November Recipe Challenge by Alanna

 Design team member Alanna submitted this layout for the November Recipe Challenge.  She said:

 I chose the second option - do a page about a recipe. These cute little reindeer chocolates were made by my boyfriend and I for our family Christmas last year and I've been meaning to scrap them all year! The photo isn't the greatest unfortunately, but hopefully we can make them again this year and I'll replace it with a better photo!! I journalled a bit about the reindeer, and the ingredients, on a tag and placed it behind the photo. I realised after I finished writing it though that I forgot to mention the jaffa for the nose! Might have to re write that too!!

Now it's your turn to take the November Recipe Challenge. You have two choices
Follow this recipe:
5 embelishments (flowers, buttons, etc)
4 words or letters in your title
3 pictures
2 pattern papers
1 solid paper
You can do a layout containing a recipe - maybe one of your family's favorite Thanksgiving dish or a family recipe.

To participate in the November Recipe Challenge - just complete a project using one of the challenges mentioned above and email a picture of your project along with a description to All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on November 30th a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of January. This challenge ends at midnight central time on November 30th
