Pink Cricut Guest Designer Project ~ Bon Appetite!

Today I am a Guest Designer over at Pink Cricut. On January 25th, Sarah announced her new Pink by Design Team and I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of them. You can click here to see all the new members. It is a privilege to be among this group of talented crafters.

As many of you know, I love to cook and try new recipes. With that said, I also like to scrap my favorite recipes. I scrap them all as 8x8 page layouts and keep them in albums with page protectors so when I cook, the pages stay nice and clean.

My guest designer project today is an 8x8 layout of one of my son's favorite dishes and what we usually have on Christmas mornings. I can't believe I haven't scrapped it until now. I came across this pretty french blue and yellow patterned papers and they seemed just fitting for this layout. I used 5, yes 5 different Cricut carts on this layout!
If you cannot read the recipe, drop me a note and I will be glad to send it to you.  
Please come back and leave a comment if you try the recipe. I would love to hear how you liked it.

Wonderful recipe layout. Need to put together a recipe book for my daughter who finished her 1st yr at college living in the dorm and will be in an apt so I'm giving her cooking lessons/tips.

I never would have thought of making a person using a circle and a tag! I would have jumped right to one of the Paper Dolls carts. This page is super cute. It would go great framed in my kitchen--I have a blueberry theme! Thanks for sharing! I'll be checking out your blog hop this weekend!
