Oops! - A Little Recipe Book!

Happy Wednesday to ya all! Today I would like to show you a little recipe book I've made. From the first moment I saw this little Oops Tilda I loved that cute little image. And when I found that journal at Michaels weeks ago I knew it would make a perfect recipe book. I already colored Tilda over a week ago and had not the right idea for using her. And yesterday when I went through my stash of journals I've collected over time and saw this one I suddenly knew that she would be the perfect match. I colored her with my Copics and used P rima Flowers, half-pearls, Basic Grey Blingz , soeme ribbon and a charm for decoration. Some highlights were set using Stickles and the swirly dots is a stamp from Inque Boutique. Oh and speaking of recipes, starting with my post there today I am posting my recipes on my recipe blog also in English ;-) I got quite a few emails asking me if I could post in English as well. Unfortunately I don't have the time right now to translate already po
