November Members' Hop

Welcome to my part of the CKCB Members' Blog Hop.
You should have come here from Dawn      http://www.dawnsscrapbookcottage.blogspot.com

The first project I worked on this month was inspired by"Forgeries on the Fourth" It is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity.  Each month on the fourth we are treated to tutorials from the Master Forgers or links to resources they have found.
Inspired by Lynette, I used punches (Fiskers, CM,Marvy) and off cuts of patterned paper. In no time I whipped up some professional looking mini trees.Trunks were cut free hand. 

Challenge #1 - Yum

"While in Canada, we begin to indulge ourselves in October, November in the US is a month all about food. So your challenge is to scrapbook about a favorite meal—something you had in a fancy restaurant, a meal you love to cook at home, or maybe your favorite weekend breakfast. Show us what you are eating!"

 My layout turned out to be my first ever recipe page. What is more comforting on a crisp fall day than a simmering pot of soup? A good soup begins with a good stock and here's my project ...
