Lovin' from the Oven

I have a fun project to share today... an altered recipe box! I want to thank Kelly for sending me some stamped images of these adorable new Magnolias from the Little Yummy for Your Tummy collection! I LOVE THEM! I was planning on making a card for today's post, but as I was looking for a recipe yesterday for peach crisp (got some fresh peaches--yum!) I saw this old black recipe box up in the cupboard and I have to say... I've never used it for recipes! Can you believe it? I had it years ago before I got married to file my cash for certain things (food, laundry, rent, etc.) and since then it's just been collecting dust. But not anymore!! I decided to clean it and bling it up! ... and a few hours later... Ta-Da!!
and I even decorated the inside lid and printed the sentiments on my computer. I added some Martha Stewart oval pearls to my EK border and added teal stickles to Tilda's apron and scarf. I attached Edwin to the lid and Tilda to the base with pop dots. The black/white polka dot strip is sheer ribbon on top of the black c.s. from the border, and the DP on the top portion is Lemonade by Basic Grey!

Hey Kristine!

I'm always amazed at all the beautiful projects that you post on your blog! Absolutely beautiful and creative!

I'm sorry I haven't stopped by for such a while! Gosh, time is just not allowing me to do all the things I so badly want to do. I'm always trying to catch up on everything and I never can seem to do it anymore. Maybe I should have less interest . . .:)

Your Tilda is colored so beautifully and man, I'm loving your recipe box. The paper choices, the colors, everything. . .all fabulous!!!
