BBQ Season Has Officially Started

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

As I was waiting for my stamps from the new Magnolia animals of the year collection to arrive I had a play with some of my older Tilda stamps. LOOOOOVE em! Especially all the food related ones.

I made for a friend of mine a recipe book after a lot of back and forth how to be able to actually get some sort of a usable book done I decided to ditch my original plan of using a word iron stand where you could flip pages (6x6) to a chip board type book. This may not be the kind she probably actually has out while cooking but it could still serve to collect some favorite recipes. I made sure I have lots of pockets, free space and tags to make notes on. By choosing this type of book, I limited myself to all flat embellishments. That was certainly a harder, if I had used the stand it would have been easier to find cute things to fill the pages up.

Anyways…off to the pictures and I promise I will make it short from now on
