Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories Booklet

Hello my friends!
Today I have a fun project to share with you that I've created using the new Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories Digital Kit!  OMG if you haven't checked out these new Kitchen Digital Kits yet ... jump over RIGHT NOW!!!  So many fabulous papers, images, ephemera that I had to make myself STOP adding pages!  LOL!

 I am so pleased with this project!  
Aren't the covers beautiful!

And to think ... it all began with empty cereal boxes and this FABULOUS NEW KIT from Crafty Secrets!!  Not only do they have this new kit but they also have a new RETRO KITCHEN DIGITAL KIT that is equally AWESOME!!!  Even though I do recycle, I can't bring myself to toss these in the bin ... they are perfect for times like this!

Now for a peek at the inside pages ... ALL created using this one kit!!  
I could have gone on and on and on ... so much fun!!
(you can click on these image to enlarge)

 Page 1 and 2 ...

 Page 3 and 4 ...

 Page 5 and 6 ...

 Page 7 and 8 ...

Page 9 and 10 ...

 So there you have it!  Don't you just LOVE IT!!!
Yes, I did a lot of fussy cutting ... not that you have to, I just like doing that!  LOL!
And I did a little playing around with the fruits and vegetables by 'grouping' them together in WORD before printing and fussy cutting.  I also resized the recipe cards before printing ... THAT is one of the wonderful things about using digital images ... you can resize to fit any project!!

Oh and in case you're interested ... this booklet is 5.5" x 7" in size.

Here are a few challenges I'd like to share today's project in:
