Recipe Book

Hi all! Is it Friday yet?! LOL Anyway, I have a project that I made the other day to share ... another birthday gift for a friend of mine. I started with some chipboard pieces and covered them with some sweet Basic Grey paper. Then I stamped the Lockhart apron stamp onto more patterned paper and paper pieced the apron onto the recipe book cover. I used a Copic marker to color the apron strings, etc. The stamped "Recipes Collection No. 1" is a PTI set. Here's the front ...I printed some lined cards that simply said "Family Favorite" and added those between the chipboard covers with a jump ring. This will make it easy for my friend to add or take out recipe cards as needed. And the back just has some pretty striped paper. I love the colors and patterns in this paper - so lovely!
Well, that is it for now! I have to hit the hay so I will be ready to get up and hit the ground running at work in the morning. Thanks for stopping by and for your comments despite my lack of blogging the past week or so! Things are starting to settle down a bit at work, I think, so hopefully I will have more time to do the fun stuff in life ... including crafting! :-)
