So Mice Of You To Join Me!

Hi There!
As you can see I've been busy with this recipe book I've been working on. Just love these sweet micey images, so perfect for a recipe page or two. (Actually four but who's counting)
I'm using a paper pack called "Kitchy Kitchen" by Melissa Francis.
As always I am using my prismacolors and lyras to color with.
The binder is by 7 Gypsy  (available at The Kraft Outlet) but I did change the rings to larger ones to accommodate more pages.


The little mice are lili of the valley stamps but the large mouse below with a cupcake is by Mo Manning.


You can click on the recipes to make them larger if you can't see them so well.


That bowl is so cute! It goes perfect with my vintage 1970's hand mixer. LOL

A few more pics...



I would have saved these spreads for a DT project but January is going to be so busy that I was afraid these pages might get set aside and forgotten.
I hope you like these mice as much as I do :)

Absolutely fabulous. I love how you colored the LOTV images. I have all the mice stamps and struggle to color them. I will use your marvelous examples to help me get it right (or at least decent enough to share). :D

This is going to be a great album Dorcas, and what's nice, is that it's different than others I've seen. You have used the digi images, or stamps instead of embellishments, which can really make an album very bulky. You are putting a lot of work into this. Love it!
Luv, Babs xo
