Family Recipes



I Scrapbooked two pages of 12″ x 12″ in January 2014, I then Scanned and stitched them in Adobe Photoshop. I included a hand written recipe of my mother in law, in an acid-free envelope. I traced recipe card dividers for the recipe and journal cards, pulling on the tabs reveal more information on the photos.

Photo from layout. Did you notice that the tablecloth matched the patterned paper? Nikon ©

      I suppose I do 😉
      Our kitchen is one of the best designed rooms in our house, although I’m not fond of an open plan kitchen, one can carry on a conversation with the rest of the family even if they are in the lounge.

    Your F-i-L seemed to take it more seriously than you do – but I love happy snacks!
    The whole design is certianly most harmonious.
