Recipe Book

I'm doing something different for family holiday gifts and I wanted to give you an idea of what I am planning.

My mom was well known from my brother's restaurants for her baking. During the holidays she would bake some of her most sought after recipes and give them as gifts to special friends and customers. I thought I would do a recipe book of some of her favorite recipes. Its not the usual kind, as I wanted to create these pages in her vision. She was a soft spoken person with a love for giving and cared deeply for family, friends and strangers alike. In fact there was no stranger in mom's life. I will be adding photos in between the recipe pages also, and it will end up being a combination of recipe's and precious moments in their lives. So here is a little preview. There will be many more pages, but let me know what you think about the way I am presenting this book. The products used are createwings designs, Paint The Moon and Joanne Brisebois
