in the kitchen

This is my favorite project right now.  I decided to create a Sn@p book featuring the photos I have cooking and baking with my loved ones.

I love to cook and bake and in my world tasty food = love.  And yes, that's why I am perpetually overweight.  LOL

When I go through photos I find so many pix cooking and baking with family and friends.  There are also lots of family recipes that have become favorites over the years.  I thought this would be a great way to collect them and pass them on.

I left open spaces to write in recipes of our favorites.  

I also added basic journaling.

I already put in a few recipes.

I'm using mostly Sn@p 24/Seven papers but I recently picked up some kitchen-y embellishments from the Farmhouse paper line and I can't wait to add them in as well.  Since the papers are so basic, I can mix and match them in easily.

Sn@p books are quickly becoming a favorite.  After making one at i {heart} memories retreat I became hooked.  In addition to this Sn@p book I worked with two friends to create a 2 volume first year baby book for a scrappy friend.  We gave it to her at her shower, and she claims it hasn't left her bedside since. It started out as 1 book.  We created so many pages we needed to expand to 2 books.  LOL  We did sections on getting ready for baby, welcome home baby, baby's firsts, baby's first year, family and a blank section to be used however she wants.  I'm planning a December Daily using a Sn@p book and looking for ways to incorporate pocket-page scrapbooking into my design style.  This is a trend that will help get more stories recorded and I'm all about getting our stories recorded.  So give Sn@p a try!

Be happy, get scrappy,
