Nuts and bolts

The much requested nuts and bolts recipe of reconstituted crappy foods that taste really good in this combination.

COMBINE in a large roasting pan:
675g cereal combination of nutrigrain, cheerios and honey chex
500g unsalted nuts ( I did use salted but I thought it was a bit too salty)
1 pack French onion soup
1pack Cream of chicken soup
1tblsp curry powder
2tspn dry mustard
2/3 cup warmed oil of your choice ( I used peanut)
for about an hour maybe longer. Before the onions brown too much but all the oil has absorbed.
Turn regularly to coat the cereal.

altered tin

I had this Glorious Green out and the Cameo Coral not far away from something the girls were doing. I liked the combination and even though the colour isn't in the paper I still liked it. Anyway, it was for the Just add ink challenge of "wild Card" do anything you like so I just kind of went OUT there. Not sure if I'll actually submit it.
I did like how the So Saffron label took the Life Definitions stamp perfectly. I then rolled out two more labels, in Coral and layered them behind, overlapping to make a larger one to mat the label on to.
Supplies: Washington Apple DSP. Vellum So Saffron, Cameo Coral and Glorious Green Cardstock.
Life Definitions Stamp set.
Tools: Big Shot, Sizzlits Lots of Tags, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
