Paper Players #71 - Anne Marie's Recipe Challenge

Hello there stamping friends! Anne Marie here with loads of fun and fabulous news to share. It's time for the first Paper Players challenge for the month of November. BUT, before we get to that...we want to take a moment to say a big, HUGE thank you to our October Guest Designer, Cindy Hall. We hope you will all continue to visit Cindy and check out the amazing projects on her blog. Thank you Cindy, for sharing your talents with us! 

Also, we would like to welcome our November Guest Designer, Susan Joyce this week.   
Here is a little about Susan, in her own words: 

"Hi Friends, my name is Susan Joyce.  I live in Moora, a small country town in the heart of the Central Midlands region, approximately 200km North of Perth our capital city in Western Australia. I have been stamping for 11 years and was introduced to stamping in 2000 by my very dear friend Nicolle Horton.  After attending Nicolle's classes I was hooked, we would meet and stamp on a weekly basis, encouraging each other with new ideas and projects until Nic moved to Perth.  I first saw a Stampin' Up! catalogue in 2004, and was very impressed with all the products and how the card, stamp pads and markers co-ordinate together.  So when Stampin' Up! came to Australia in 2006 I joined up as a Demonstrator and haven't looked back.  I am totally addicted and very passionate about my stamping and love to challenge myself by doing as many challenges as I can each week. I am not a big Scrapper but I don't mind doing an odd page, I prefer to do cards and 3D projects.  My dear husband Graham is very supportive and travels with me to Convention, Stamp Camps and to Perth for meetings and is always keen to offer his opinion if I am having a Mojo moment. We also have a furry feline "Maisie" who rules the house, especially my stamping desk until she receives the required amount of attention before she will leave. We have three children all married, living in Perth and four darling Grand-daughter's and one gorgeous Grandson.  I am honoured to be able to share some of my projects as The Paper Players Guest Designer for November.  I hope I can inspire you to join in and "have a go" (as they say in Australia) at doing the challenges."

Now, are you ready for our challenge? Ok...this week as your hostess, I have asked the team to put on their Paper Players aprons and "GET COOKING"! We are featuring a RECIPE challenge! I hope YOU are ready to get busy in the "creative kitchen" and show us your creative inspiration with the folowing theme:
