Bakers in Training

Over at Whimsical Scraps and Bugs, our latest challenge was to use the ad at the left for inspiration for a project. I don't have many vintage pictures, so I chose to go with the kitchen theme. These pictures are of my dad and my niece making cookies together from a bag of "Cookies for Dummies." Here's my take on the challenge:

I used A Child's Year for the girl and the oven, as well as for the title (which shows up better in person). I added some stickles to the letters in the title. The flowers are chipboard embellishments. I used distressing ink on the edges of the pages and handstitched around the patterned paper at the bottom.
Here's a close up of page 1:

Thanks for looking!
