Paper Mixing Bowl November Challenge

The November Recipe, Thanksgiving Leftovers,  is out for The Paper Mixing Bowl, and it is yummy!  Mashed potatoes and gravy were always my favorite at Thanksgiving.  
I met the challenge fairly well this month.  I used the colors white and brown.  Most of the color is from my photo.  For the Recycled Elements/Found Objects, I used the reddish birdie.  I have been trying to get that bird onto something for months. I think the bird has 4 coats of paint on him.  My Elements from Nature are the pieces of grape vine that  I stole from a small grape vine wreath.  As for the back ground, I did not create my own, but I used a Mask.  I Stamped all of those leaves.  Oops.  Use Fiber.  Ok, I missed one!  Wait, paper is a fiber!  I used a poem about trees for the journalling. 

Give me a land of boughs in leaf,
A land of trees that stand;
Where trees are fallen there is grief;
I love no leafless land."
- A.E. Housman

Now it's your turn to cook.  Show us at The Paper Mixing Bowl what you can make with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
