Holiday Recipe Book

Holiday Recipe Book

Todays challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room is called Tis the Season.  You were to make a gift, card, tag or project for Christmas.  I thought it might be kind of fun to make a little recipe book with holiday favorite recipes.  Believe me I am not a baker so it is a small book with shorts recipes, but are some of our favorite sweet snacks.

here is the front of the book, I added ribbons, charms and some small baking embellishments to the cover

there are five pages each one having five little pockets to hold recipes, pictures, ingredient list or whatever you might want.  There are two pockets on the front of each page and two pockets on the back of each page and a pocket in the middle of each page.

I made some tags and small recipe cards to add to it..............

Scleraderma Foundation

The Shabby Tea Room has a challenge this week, Pick your cause.  This was a very difficult challenge for me to participate in and even thought I wouldn't, but my husband passed away in 1992 from a disease called Scleraderma.  We had never heard of it and didn't know anything about it and actually there is very little known about it because it is so rare. 

The reason I decided to do this challenge is because I am so proud of my youngest daughter and youngest son.  Last summer they did a 5K walk to raise money for the Scleraderma Foundation.  They raised over $1000.00.

The incentive for my card is from the shirts they designed and had printed up, everyone that did the walk for them wore one of these shirts.

The front of the shirt had a picture of my late husband, (their dad) on the front and  Walking it forward, on the back they had the other things on it which you will see on my card.

The heart and the keys represent our love for him and the keys are the key to the future to find a cure.
