Seasoned With Salt

I would have to say that Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week.  Not only is it the day of our mid-week service at church, but it's also the day we begin another fun challenge each week at Word Art Wednesday.  I enjoy making and sharing my projects for our challenges primarily because I get to design with God's precious and holy Word.  Sharing the devotional also blesses ME as much as it blesses others.  Scripture is a blessing to everyone, and I really hope that it will be a blessing to each of you this week.
I decided to make a little cookbook for this week's project.  This first picture (above) is the front cover.  I made it using a Medium Kraft Paper Sack from The Kraft Outlet.  Pretty much everything I used to decorate this book is from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird Collection.  This includes the patterned papers, chipboard, journaling cards, and stickers.
This second page (above) is the back side, and it shows what's "On The Menu".  I chose Buttermilk Chicken, Low Fat Pasta Salad, Dinner Rolls and Banana Cream Supreme for dessert.  These are the four recipes you will see in another photo.
In the very first photo, you can see a tag sticking out of the pocket.  This photo (above) shows one side of that tag.  I created a pocket to hold the four recipes of the dishes "On The Menu".  I used the sweet Vintage Recipe Cards from Daydream Designs which I colored, and hand-wrote the recipes on.  This set includes four different styles of recipe cards, which just so happened to be exactly how many I need for this yummy meal.
This last photo (above) is the other side of the tag insert.  I used this week's free word art/scripture file from Word Art Wednesday.  You are welcome to stop by and save this beautiful free file.  You're never required to use it on the project(s) you enter in our challenges, but it is there for you if you want it.  I thought the scripture matched this cute little salt and pepper page.  Yes, it's kind of a play on words - but still cute (or so I thought).
