My Favourite Recipes Book

Today I would like to show you My Favourite  Recipes Book which I made a little while ago. The album itself has been cut from 3mm craftwood (MDF), the edges painted and the pages covered with patterned paper then decorated. Each page shows a photo and instructions for a favourite family recipe. I have also inserted a clear acetate sheet to protect each page so that it is a working recipe book.
 A bit of a long post today but I hope you enjoy it.
I entered my album in the Royal Queensland Show and was awarded Best Exhibit in the Scrapbooking Section.

A Day at the Beach

I had this beautiful piece of paper in my stash for a while before I decided just how I was going to use it. I cut around the photo of Jay playing on the beach and it all just seemed to blend in with the background. I added  Cuttlebug alphas and some shells. I also added a little bit of sand along the front edge.

Beaded Bride

I enjoy beaded knitting although I haven't done any in a while. My hubby says it is because I have to sit still while I do it. I wonder what he means by that. I hope that you enjoy seeing my bride and bridesmaids.
