Capturing Memories

A couple of weeks back, my card won a sketch challenge over at Let's Capture our Memories. As a result I have the honor of being a guest designer for this week-yea! My first guest (or any type of designing) ever! I am so excited. This sketch by Sandi is the challenge this week. And this is what I did with it! Some of you have been awaiting the result of my squash book, which is now done, and I used this sketch to decorate the cover. You can find the challenge here:
Since it is a squash book, it opens, so I took even more pictures than normal (which should make for a long post-sorry). Here it is opened. I stamped the background with a polka dot background stamp I've had for ages, added triangles to fit and envelopes for the newlyweds to add their recipes to (did I mention this was a wedding gift for some friends?). On the envelopes are some of our favorite recipes.

Details on the front. The tag is a Stampin' Up Punch. The brown shape is a digi stamp I enlarged and cut out. The 'granny' is also a digi stamp. They were from the same place: The Digi Shack (and are both free there). The glitter is Stickles and the paper Amanda Blu. Taking a look inside:
And a couple close-ups. The recipe cards were from Stamps and Smiles. If it is still available (it was free) it can be found here. The inside papers are all The Paper Studio.
The 'sides, main dishes, snacks, drinks' were written by me and embossed in blue distress powder.
