Recipe book

i was inspired by Janiel's recipe cards to make a recipe folder for my future dil, my son is only getting married early next year we are having a few venue problems right now so the date is not set in stone, however they would very much like it to happen on the 20th March, lets see if we can get a Rabbi to officiate on that day as its Purim that day next year and they wanting to charge us an arm and a leg for that date.  Anywho on with my recipe folder, there is a fab sketch at creative inspirations this week so i decided to use their sketch on the cover and get an early start to this project.

I have colored my ketchen Tilda with my copics, cut her with one of my nesties, i used Karen Foster dp, cut the rolling pin with my cricut and then raised it for a bit of dimensional POP! tied some ribbon around the handles of the rolling pin and added a charm to the one end, used my MS punch for the drippy goo, a couple of punched flourishes and lots of pearls and flowers, the flowers got a lavish treatment of the shimmery mist.
