Growing in Unity Day Five

Welcome to my final day hosting Growing in Unity! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects as much as I have enjoyed sharing them!! I know I've kind of talked up this last project of mine, but I REALLY LOVE IT!!! So, without further ado, here is my lovely little Christmas Cocktail recipe book!












My parents love making special cocktails at Christmas time . . . it is so festive to have a yummy drinkwith a candy cane over the edge of the glass, while sitting in front of the fire! If you are not a drinker, you could make yours a recipe book of Christmas Sweets/Desserts, and use all the yummy cupcake and other sweets stamps from Unity to accent your pages!!

I think the SU! Top Note die makes fabulous little pages for a mini album like this. I covered chipboard with Wassail paper. The pages are this AWESOME paper from WorldWin, called double mates. They are different shades of the same color on each side. So if every other page set looks different, it is!! One set of pages is bright red and green, the other is dark red and green. There are LOTS of things I would do differently if I made this little recipe book again. I'm not a scrapper, so placement of embellishments is hard for me, somehow. I would probably print the recipes on an ivory cardstock next time too, and sponge the edges of everything, to add to the distressed look that the cover has. Oh well, live and learn! I'm still pretty pleased with it!

Thanks for joining me this week! Have a great weekend!!
