One Hour Challenge Recipes

There's a thread on the Cricut Chat board called the One Hour Challenge.  Several nights a week we post something crafty that we've done and recently a few of us decided we'd do a recipe swap.

Starting this upcoming week, we're supposed to post a recipe that we've scrapped for everyone to see.  If they like it, they'll scrap it themselves and post their photos later.

Last fall I made myself an album of the recipes that I use the most so I created a new binder today to hold my MB recipes.

Rather than purchase an 8 x 8 album, which is what I really wanted but didn't have a coupon for Hobby Lobby and was too cheap to buy, I picked up a three-ring binder at Wal Mart and made this cover for it.

I used Cursive 101 for the title, From My Kitchen for the smaller words and Storefront for the bug head.

Here's the first page with a recipe from a MB member.  Thanks Theresa Klee for sending this one to me.  I love comfort food casseroles like this and will be trying it soon!

The word and hot mitts are cuts on From My Kitchen. Computer printed the recipe and mounted it on a frame from Wild Card.   I cut out an image from a sheet of retro-kitchen themed ones and put photo corners on it and used a couple of Graphic 45 punch outs too.  Of course there's a little Chesnut Brown inking going on and a few lines of doodling on there!
