My niece Janie, the oldest of 16 grandchildren, had her bridal shower this past weekend. Besides giving the typical household gifts, I wanted to do something alittle special for her. This is what I came up with.
Thick 5x7 cardstock and lots of vintage pictures were used.
Coming from a woman who hasn't had a dishwasher since moving in here 12 years ago, I couldn't agree more!
Rather than print the recipes straight onto the book, I added pockets instead.
Some recipes were pasted onto the back of cute pictures like this one. I layered each recipe with packing tape for protection while cooking and then slipped on a paperclip for easy removal.
Don't say I didn't warn you, Matt!
I added a tiny tin Christmas ornament here. Isn't it cute? It's only about 2 inches tall and is handmade (not by me though!)
My most asked-for Christmas cookie~
Seriously, why does this happen even when my original picture is upright? Anyhow, added lots of soup recipes here. Janie's a vegetarian, but from what I hear, Matt's craving some pork chops. Looks like I need to send more recipes!
I tried to sneak in other graphics here and there. This one is hidden under the soup recipes.
"There is no vision on Earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves."
All it would take is one time!
More recipes behind the pics. This one says, "Nothing is more intoxicating as the smell of bacon frying in the morning save perhaps the smell of coffee brewing." I'm not a big bacon eater and I don't like the taste of coffee, but I couldn't agree more with this!
Hoping their love lasts forever.
