SOUP? anyone?

Tehhehee I LOVE soup but only if its homemade… can’t do packet soup or soup from a tin! blurgh!

anyway! haha its Tuesday so that means its time for a new Top Tip Tuesday challenge wow what awesome entries! I hope you have as much fun this next challenge I sure have and so have my team-mates, Heike has a fabulous tutorial for you and the team have some wonderful inspiration too!
we have 3 awesome sponsors ~

and they all are offering awesome Prizes
we also have guest designers and our Caught our Eye Designer too! so plenty of inspiration!!

So then what is the challenge and what did I make?
The Challenge theme is Easter or Animals or both!
When I was looking through the images at Bugaboo for what I would like to use I fell in love with the image called Chicken soup teheheheee isn’t it fun!
As I keep Chickens this one was so funny to me! tehhehee so I decided to make a shopping list book! I am terrible for bits of paper off cuts so I have used some of those and some Kraft card for the cover.

I have used Gingham ribbon as that always reminds me of country kitchens don’t know why mind?
and the button is one that was from Hmmmmm the bottom of my button box dunno how long its been there or in fact what it was off of… But I love it on this notebook with the twine bow.

I have 2 Tips for ya so hope they are useful:

Tip 1 : Darken your edges of your design so your faux stitching shows up more,

Tip 2 : Use your Digi image (just in black) to print your own backing papers, I have printed direct onto the Kraft card, and also mirrored some of the images.

Here is the notebook with some of the eggs from Our Chickens…. YUM!

The Challenge I'm joining is with are:

Whimsical Wednesdays - Spring (last challenge)
