Kiss The Cook!

My beautiful granddaughter went home Sunday morning and although I am shattered, I just can't sleep! 17 hours after she's gone and I'm still yawning, feeling tired... but not being able to catch those Zzzz's! So... I'm about two-thirds finished on Naomi's recipe mini album and decided to show you all a quickie update on how it's coming along whilst I'm still awake. 
I decided to use the black gingham ribbon to attach the "Kiss The Cook" spoon instead of the chain I had before, and that way Naomi can take off the spoon and hang it up if she wants. I may add the word "Recipes" in red... but haven't decided 100% on that yet (when do I ever make up my mind fully? *lol*). The pot is just a rough picture, printed and then glued onto chipboard... then glitter-lacquered - a lot! (Naomi likes a bit of bling and glitter). I cut the lid separately...
... this lifts off to reveal three journalling spaces, so I can write a message to Naomi just from me :)
She came for a quick visit today and rooted around until she found the recipe album (she hates surprises!) and then squealed in delight - she loves it!
She can't wait to try the Moroccan recipes I've included, as well as the Gin & Tonic Sorbet :)
Actually, that G&T Sorbet sounds pretty good right now... *lol*

Oh Sheleen, it's awful when you are so tired you just can't sleep - hope you manage to catch up on a few zzzz today.

The recipe book is looking super - aren't you clever - a really beautiful project.

You know me, I'm always up for a G&T!

That's another beautiful project. I'm not surprised that she loves it

WOW! I love the album Sheleen. You have done a fab job so far. *Ü* I love this time of year, it makes me want to get my cookery books out and do more baking. Enjoy your peace. ~Glen~
