A Recipe Book

Sorry that i haven't added anything in the past week, but i haven't felt so good...but now i'm back to play...lol
I'm getting quite 'Fed up' of making cards...LOL ...I just have soooooo many!! That would be a good thing if you sell them...but i don't, so now i have piles and piles of cards mounting up! So for a while i think i shall go back to creating 'things' as aspposed to just cards :)
My 1st 'Thing' is a Recipe book that i have made as a gift.
I used the Sketch from JUST MAGNOLIA

I WAS gonna decorate all the inside pages...BUT then i decided not too...and let the recipient do that instead...that way she can decorate to co-ordinate with whichever recipes she puts in there :)
I'm also gonna make myself one of these and have it all decorate up inside!

Don't these 2 just look cute together? I don't normall 'DO' the whole masking thing....however i do think that the magnolia images are ideal for this...so maybe i'l start doing more masking.
Hmmm...I wonder which one of these 2 dropped the egg??? LOL

I left the back plain so as when 'she' finishes the book she can add her own details ect to the back :)
This recipe book also fits with the following challenges
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - DIMENSION
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - OPEN THEME
SIMON SAYS STAMP - DISTRESSING
STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY - FLOWER POWER
STAMP SOMETHING - DOODLE SOMETHING

Supplies used :
Paper - Magnolia and Prima and Basic grey
Image stamps- Manolia
Bling flourishes- Prima *I think*
Flowers & Ribbons from stash
Image coloured with Tim Holtz distress ink pads
All distressing done using Vintage photo
