Mar 1 Release Blog Hop!!!


Hello friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Mar 1 Release Blog Hop! The Bread Sticks are jumping for joy in the bread basket this month!!! There's lot's of other goodies being baked up and wow are they yummy!!!

If you got here from our sweet and creative Chris, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to return to the ODBD Blog so you don't miss a thing! 

 First... here are the details of the hop:
  • Hop will run from 8:00am EST Mar 1   to 8:00pm EST  Mar 2
  •  Winners announced Mar 3 
  •  Prizes: There sill be FIVE PRIZES of $20.00 GC for STAMPS in the ODBD Store!
  • To qualify to win, simply hop to each blog, leave some love for each designer, and return to the ODBD Blog to let us know you completed the hop, and tell us which SET or SETS you like the best!
Now on to the details of my project.... I apologize that there are a lot of photos today, but I altered a photo flip album to be an album of special family recipes.  I thought this would be perfect for that bride who would love to have those special recipes she grew up loving, or perhaps recipes from her Mother in Law that are special to her new husband.  There are lots of possibilities here... so lets get started!

Here is what I started with:


Pretty wood, but definitely  in need of a make over!  I removed the star, and added paper and bling!
Here is the new cover:


 I'll simply show you the pages I created and slid in to the plastic sleeves, and at the end I'll give you a list of materials.
