Ancient Secret Recipes

We had got another lead on the schema we were searching for that would allow us to make the legendary adhesive, so the Lady Commander of Copics and I set out to the Shabby Shutter Isle, hoping for better luck than last time. Everything on the island was varying shades of green, making it difficult to navigate and easy to lose our way. Angela began marking trees we passed, using her accessory R26, to help prevent us from getting turned around too much. We finally came to the location we sought and began to dig under the Great Green Oak Tree as instructed. I’ll admit that I was somewhat surprised by what we found. Not only did it include the schema we so desired, but multiple other diagrams, directions and recipes for making various accessories, tonics and potions. 

I made this recipe book as a gift for my lady mother and lord husband’s mother (that’s right, I did two of these suckers) to share my favourite recipes. I made all the pages, embossing the edges of each one, then used a piece of ancient designer paper to bind it all using my YourStory. The letters on the front of the book were cut using the Storybook cartridge. Okay...there’s a lot of pages, so we’ll go fast (I took pics of them before they were bound). You can click on any of the pics should you like a closer look.
The sliced apple was cut using Country Life.
Apples were cut using Give a Hoot.

Muffins were from Create-a-Critter.
The milk and eggs were cut using Country Life.
Cute smiling bananas from Create-a-Critter.
Blender cut from Nifty Fifties.
Cute panda came from Create-a-Critter.
The carrot and cheese were from Create-a-Critter and the snail is from Paisley.
Veggies were cut from Country Life.
Chicken also came from Country Life.
The corn is from Country  Life while the mushroom is from Create-a-Critter.
The KAWAII noodle bowl is from Create-a-Critter.

Lemon and can are from Simply Charmed.
Another chicken from Country Life.
Apron is from Country Life. The utensils are from Disney: Dreams Come True.
Cute mouse is from Create-a-Critter. I honestly don't remember which cartridge the flowers came from.
The ship and fish are both from Pack Your Bags.
Cute cow is from Create-a-Critter.
Cheese block is also from Create-a-Critter.
Mushrooms are all from Paisley.

It's very puffy!

Okay I know that was a lot of pages. Phew. This recipe book will cook up a storm in the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #149: Kiss the Cook
Friends of SpeedyTV Challenge #60: Recipe Card (well there’s a few here - lol)
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #90: Use your oldest designer paper
Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #115: Anything Goes
Spark your Creativity Now! Challenge #6: Anything Goes
Crafting for All Seasons Challenge #46: Dies and Punches

We carefully removed the tome from the ground, in awe of our find. We would be able to craft some powerful accessories and potent tonics with the knowledge contained inside. The Lady Commander and I left Shabby Shutter Isle to return to the Guild Hall, eager to begin creating. Quest complete!
