November Recipe Challenge by Tamara

Design Team Member Tamara submitted this recipe book for the November Recipe Challenge.  She said:

Last year for Christmas gifts, I decided last minute to make books for each of my siblings of recipes from my mom's recipe box. She passed away three years ago and this was one way to share not only her recipes with my siblings but also her handwriting. I used the recipes right from her box and copied them for all. You have to realize that I had to make ten of these so all of us could have our own copy and of course my daughter wanted one when she saw the completed project.It was definately a gift of love.

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
