Bloggers Challenge Week #24 Watercoloring


This week's challenge was to use watercoloring. Since I had two classes this week and getting ready to leave town in about an hour, I didn't have time to design something new this morning. However, recently I saw a recipe book that Jan Tink had made and loved it! Yesterday, I made up mine smaller than hers, but used a very similar design...I figured, how can you improve on perfection?

Last night was my Last Minute Gifts class, and I made each person one of these base recipe books to finish. I covered the chipboard and used my Bind-it-All to put it together ahead of time. But, they finished by adding the coordinating paper, ribbon and stamped chef image. The only decoration inside are the tabs and recipe pages...they can choose what categories. Like Jan says, I think it is just STINKIN' CUTE and my class loved it! lol!

Voila chef is colored with Watercolor crayons to meet this challenge! Make sure to check out the other Blogger's who participate!
