Special wedding gift

CONGRATS to my friends Eddie and Kellye who just got married on Monday, 5/12. My friend Debbie and I had something up our sleeves within days of hearing of their engagement. We decided to make a very special gift for them. But first let me tell you about this card. I wanted to play with these colors - and it matched the gift bag for the special gift.

Details, details...
Stamp set: Baroque Motifs and Happy Harmony (retired)
Colors: Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, and Confetti White
Other: clear embossing powder

So, the special gift? Well, months ago a friend and I started contacting both Eddie and Kellye's family members (and some close friends who just so happen to make miracles hapen in the kitchen). Our goal was to compile some family recipes for her, and to add to her already amazing collection of some kick-a** recipes! (What an amazing and creative cook our friend Kellye is!)

We gathered recipes for desserts, appetizers, salads, soup, entrees and more! And Debbie and I had so much fun making all of this. The binder was a tricky one. We knew we wanted to be able to put the pages in protectors - so they wouldn't get splattered on. So until Kellye wants to add some of her own recipes and grow her collection we decided to start this off in a 1 1/2" 3-ring binder... yes, the kind in the school supplies aisle. Hey - no one ever complained of my resourceful tendencies! So, shoosh...

Oh, just in case you're wondering... yes, we put the Dessert section first! Just because we know Kellye would love that!

Details, details...

Stamp set: Voila, Watercolor vine jumbo wheel
