My First Scrap Book.....Recipe Book

My first scrap book...when I had hardly any knowledge of scrap booking.I made this book about four years back.This was a book that I made for my daughter..she has a cooking blog and giving her this recipe book for her birthday seemed just appropriate.Throughout the book I used downloaded papers,which I got printed.I got ruled papers and stuck these on ivory papers....now I understand that I could have used some other cheaper paper...it was not going to show anyway.I used dots and stripes..and my circle punch to fullest!!
II did'nt get any embllishments....I took pictures of foods from her blog and got these printed...and the blog logo...."olives and basil"...I made small prints of these and pasted them....created pockets at a few places.
At that time I did'nt even have a good camera..so had taken pics very randomly fortunately saved them and today I am posting them.
The only place where I used embllishments was the cover page....I made a mini jute sack and filled grain and pasted some stickers which said..Tea ,Sugar,Coffee and Flour...these were 3D stickers..also I stuck some tiny lamasa fruits..a watermelon slice..a pear.
After getting the book binded ..I prefer spiral....I attached loads of ribbons..and thats it!!










I know if I were to make a book on the same format I would do a much better job...but still this one remains to be my favorite there was so much love into the making of book where there was no  inking..no die cuts.....no special papers...no stylish embllishments......n no special camera...just love to wish my doll a happy birthday.
