    Seriously cool! I am making one for my daughter, but it is not going to be anywhere near as cool as this one!

    What a great way to start a young cook off on her culinary adventures. Not only will it be fun to store recipes in it but what a lovely keepsake!
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I am in love! This is gorgeous. Can’t wait to start doing some art journaling of my own… if I can ever tear myself away from my iPad or break free from my blog addiction.
