Polkadoodles Christmas

Happy friday folks! I have a child off today on inset (one of the perils of now having 3 children in 3 different schools is all the different inset days!) so we are going to keep busy doing some things together today... possibly some crafting?!
Anyway I am here this morning with my creation for the new challenge at polkadoodles and Studio 12. We were set the theme of making a Christmas gift but the challenge is Anything goes for Christmas!
Here is another of my pay it forward makes...
I have made this for a friend, although I desperately need to make one of these for myself! It's a festive recipe book to keep all those holiday recipes in. I have used papers from the Here comes Christmas CD. My frame around my title and my tag at the side there are also from this CD. I have provided dividers for... The main event, Baked goods and Desserts. My lettering is SU stickers and my flowers are a range of flat paper ones that I have had in my stash for ages as I only ever seem to use the big roses now but that's not very practical for a book cover! My leaves were cut with a Marianne's die and I have used tattered rose crackle paint on all my edges.
My sweet gingerbread digi is also from the CD and does come pre coloured or you can colour him, like I did with prisma pencils and I added some buttons for dimension.
Here you can see the tag tied to the side a little better which is pre coloured and matches the rest of the elements perfectly.
We hope you can join us this time for the fab challenge!
Thanks for coming by my blog.
Big hugs
