Wordless Wednesday

A blog I follow has a "Wordless Wednesday" post each week that showcases a photo that needs no introduction.  She's a better photographer than me but I thought I'd give it a try. 
Here's my wordless wednesday photo....

Recipe Books.....

Isn't this the cutest little recipe book ever!!!  It's made using CTMH's My Creations 3-Ring Binder and Twitterpated pp. I added some embellishments to dress it up a little as well as ink distressed around all the edges using Chocolate Ink and a Sponge Dauber.
My workshop attendees got to choose the paper packet or color scheme they wanted to use....the choices ranged from Christmas-themed, Grace pp and random colors to match their kitchens.

We used Flip-Flaps for the recipe card protectors.....I printed the recipe cards using Excel.

Additional products used not listed above:
Dimenstional Elements - Basic Alphabet, Bookplates & Shapes (discontinued)
Font used: Pharmacy from www.dafont.com

Trick or Treat.....

I just love Halloween...you remember the days of hurrying around the house to find all the makings for the perfect costume (we never got "bought" costumes when I was young).  I loved coming home and dumping all the candy out on the floor, hiding all the "good stuff" and giving my mother all the stuff she loved (or so she said).  I ate candy for DAYS (might be why I'll be seeing my dentist twice this month)!!!!
Here's a little peak at what I'm creating to get me in the mood.....

Ready for Christmas.....

No time for Halloween....it's time for Holiday Warmth!!! 
Welcome to our SOTM Blog Hop!  This month is a little different but still simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  We've broken the hop into 3 groups for easy hopping!!!  Have fun!
Here are two 6"x6" cards and one 5"x7" all using one of our NEW paper packets, Jingle!!!  It's fun and funky and since there are no traditional Christmas colors, it can be used for just about anything!!!

Now "Hop" on over to my dear friend and upline, Pamela's Blog, to see her work!
