TUESDAY THROWDOWN CHALLENGE

Good Morning Everyone hope you week is staring off well. Our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is scraps.... reeaaaally scraps! Now if I had done a card it would have been easier but I'm trying to finish up another recipe album and was determined to make this recipe page. Of course my Big boxful of scraps sure didnt work with what I wanted to do sooo had to change the plan. Since the recipe is asparagus I wanted lots of green but the scrap colors were not cooperating much on that either. Blessed are the flexible they shall not break, have you heard that one before??

Well I had this dotted green scrap but had to place my pocket in that spot as there was a chunk out just slightly smaller than the pocket. I love this image even though it has veggies other than the recipe ingredients. I water colored it and stitched it onto the green. I used the textured kraft paper scrap down the side and added some buttons and some of the ingredients I drew and water colored. These books are filled will family recipes for my daughters and niece.

The recipe is mounted onto a multicolored stripe with a little tag top to pull it out with. The recipe name was put onto a checked scrap..... this turned out to be a Real Challenge LOL

  1. This is awesome, Davi! I love your bright colors and what a great pocket for the recipe and such a fun tab. I made my DIL a recipe scrapbook and it took months. I really miss scrapbooking.
