Recipe book for Chef Bob

I made this recipe book for my hubby. Since I started running a business again he has taken over with all domestic duties and I have to say he is doing a fab job at it. He has taken up learning to cook and man that man can cook! He gets on the internet and finds tasty things to make for me so I wanted to make him his own book to put all his recipes in that he ends up liking.

I bought this stamp set from Unity Stamp Company as soon as I seen it! I knew I wanted to make this book. I wish it was a bit larger but it works. I used Momenta paper from "Family Outings" paper stack behind the chef and rubbed Tim Holtz distress ink all over it to make it look a bit dirty/aged. I bought a ton of different charms from a lady on facebook (lots of halloween ones because I LOVE halloween...well scrapping it anywhooo so most of the charms are halloween) these cute little knife, fork and spoon are one set I bought. I purchaed some of these Tim Holtz pins to put the charms at Michaels. Now one of my favorite things on this book are the "Momenta Metals" on the corners. I bought several packs of different kind (you know the halloween thing....a book is in the making for it) This is a new product out for Momenta and you got to check it out at your local Michaels. They had a large display at mine!

I used my Cherry Red and white "Timeless Twine" for the pop of color around my frame.

The frame is a cut from Cricut Fancy Frame cartridge. I used a die from "My creative Time for me" to stamp the "whats cooking" with. I took a cut from that die and just snipped off the ends to just doodle and write the words Bob's Kitchen on it" He thinks everything should have his name all over it. Trust me he wanted me to put it on the chef and at the top too! Man has a ego! HEE HEE

The paper on the front base is "Cosmo Cricket" I don't remember what line. On the back which I didn't take a pic of is My Minds eye papers in the red and mustard colors.
