November Recipe Challenge by Sarah

I really enjoyed the Challenge this month...
At 1st I wasn't sure exactly 'what' to scrapbook. Sooo much isn't done and I'm always behind. I started looking through pictures and came up with the '3', which are from *last years* family Christmas pictures (see... behind!).
These 3 went together, so...
Pictures X3: check!
Then started thinking about recipes... and food...
Remembered I had this 'Recipe of Love' Icon pinned on Pinterest. Perfect!
I printed it off at the same time as the Photos on the glossy photo paper.
The rest,  I had no plans for, I just started and it all just kinda came together.
The 2 pattern papers are both Graphics 45 (Steampunk Debutante and Botanicabella) scraps from my cut-off stash.
Pattern Paper X2: check!
Cardstock is textured Bazzill, rubbed with a red SU! ink spot.
Cardstock X1: check!
Then I got stuck, reeeeally stuck on the 4 words.
Rummaged my stash for a few days and finally I found an idea.
Letters are Teresa Collins.
Comma is the inside of the 'a', so annoying when they don't add these to sticker sets. lol
Letters X4: check!
That left the 5 embellishments... and another day of digging. ;O)
Found a $ store sticker set I bought waaaaay back (at least 4 years ago) and it was perfect!
The right colors, theme to boot... woot!
4 stickers + black ribbon trimming out the pattern paper strips=
Embellishments X5: check!
Recipe, er... Page Done!
I took a few really close up pictures of the stickers, they're just so stinkin' cute. :O)
Glad I found them and got them used. Thank-You again for Scrap Our Stash!
