I found a new...different...and way fun challenge blog!!!

How fun is this!!! Julie....Special Craft Mom of 4 and owner of Scrapbook Store at your Door has started a way fun challenge blog....for recipe cards! I was so excited when I found this yesterday! For the past year, I have wanted to put create a recipe collection of my and my mother's recipes for my daughter and this is just what I needed to get started!! Her first challenge was just to create a 6x6 recipe card. So I started with the recipe I use most often at home...a very simple tomato sauce that my grandmother passed on to my mother.

Julie's store is my source for most of my non-SU! paper, which is primarily Basic Grey. I used Basic Grey Marrakesh for this layout. The layout is from Triple the Sketch (65)! It is really a scrapbook layout that I modified!! I also decided to use some Crafty Secrets stamps sets. I am so excited about this challenge will get me to put my recipes together and I will get all sorts of new ones from others participating!

So if you are looking for something fun and different, check out the Recipe Challenge Blog!! She has a design team call going on. Also, check out Julie's video...she is famous!! She was on TV in Saint Louis showing how to make Father's Day cards!!! Hey Julie, remember me when you go national!!

stamps: Crafty Secrets

What a great idea! And so pretty, too. I love the BG Marrakesh paper and it looks great with the recipe. I can see a collection of these would be great gifts or trading cards. You come up with the greatest projects!
