Hi Again everyone!
Guess what I have here? Yup! Another recipe page for you!
It was time to spice things up with something hot!
The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week is:
Punches and Dies
as you see I went a little crazy with them. :)
For the page on the left I was hoping to find a senor for my Senorita Rosa (on facing page) but since Mo didn't have one I went digi hunting and found this awesome cactus from Elizabeth Dulemba. It's free, too. How cool is that?

If you click on the picture it will blow it up a bit more so you can read the recipes.

And here's lovely Rosa...

Images: Fiesta by Elizabeth Dulemba and Rosa by Mo Manning
Papers: MME and DCWV
Dies : Spellbinders
Punches: Martha Stewart
Ribbon: Sew Sweet

*Remember, there's still time to join in my blog candy if you haven't already done so, its open til Dec 30th and you can find the original post here.

WoW, What a wonderful idea. You make recipe books a whole lot more fun and more fun to use. Mine are still a bit of a mess, that has been a long project! Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa

Tine said...

Hi Dorcas. The perfect images for your recipes and coloured to perfection too, of course. Your recipe book is coming along nicely now - just a thought, will you need to do the 'how to' bit as well as the ingredients? Wouldn't leave much room for the images though, LOL.
Tine :)

Love your recipe pages! Sooo cute!! I was so surprised by your name - that was the name my mother had chosen for me before I was born. But the nurses asked my dad and I ended up with Anita instead. I have never seen anyone else with that name! I will have to let my mother know - she is still miffed to this day :)

Thanks for playing along with us at The ColourQ - your work is wonderful!!
