Amber (my dd) is turning 21 on the 7th of May and
I swear I will get this cookbook ready for her before then even if it kills me..
She absolutely loves to cook, must take after me after all..LOL
She's always asking me how do I make this and how do I make that?..
and so, I decided a long time ago to make her a scrap style cookbook and finally got to making it today..
This is a 8x8 chipboard album that I will create out of empty cereal boxes.
I figured to have several different categories , like main dishes, side dishes and desserts..
This is a definite dessert category and funny how I started the book with something sweet and fattening, instead of something healthy.. LOL :O)
The photo is of a batch of cookies I made a few days ago, all gone by the way.. Nothing that good lasts too long in this house, that's for sure...LOL
I am hoping that this will stay in her family from generations to come..Unless her dog eats it like he does everything else...LOL :O)
here are some close ups:
The text is pretty small on the recipe card, but if I can read it so can she...LOL :O)
Some Prima flowers and lace to add a mothers love to the book.. :O)
I added some gold liquid pearl and brown stickles inside the bowl to resemble cookie dough..LOL
