I used some items from this month's Alpha Stamps kit, plus tons of scraps of paper to make this little boozy recipe book.


What goes great with fruit? Booze, and vintage housewives. These gals are drinking morning, noon, and night.


Each section has a pocket containing a recipe. Is it before noon? How about a tipsy smoothie (nutritious because fruit!)


Another housewife:


Noon beverage: Champagne Lemonade, mmm!


Now evening rolls around...


...and we have a couple of Orange Crush Cocktails. Looks like my writing's starting to slip a bit. Oops, hic!


The end. G'night.  Cheesy


EDIT: Here are the recipes. I got these online, and haven't tried any of them, but they did sound good...


Tipsy smoothie:
Add the berries and ice to a blender and crush.
Add Vodka and lemon juice to the blender and blend until smooth.
Poor into glasses, garnish with mint leaf, and serve immediately.

Champagne Lemonade
Boil sugar in 1 c. water for one minute until dissolved. Turn off heat and let cool.
Combine cooled syrup with lemon juice and 2 c. water, mix well.
Fill champagne flute with 1/2 lemonade, then top with champagne and garnish with lemon slice.

Orange Crush Cocktail
Add vodka, Cointreau and orange juice to a glass filled with ice.
Top with a splash of Sprite and mix well. Garnish with orange peel.

Go to bed. You're drunk. Cheesy

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

So witty!  Needs more than just three drinks, you should have one for every hour (needs one at least for a nightcap).

I love how you pull together so many collage elements, yet avoid a cluttered page. I wish I had the knack! I adore the little pockets with the recipes, too.

I have always admired those who are able to produce fun scrapbooks. I have tried my hands on one but I always end up making a messy book instead. What are some of the tips you guys can share on how to make an exciting scrapbook without making a messy layout?

Racky, I never thought of you as cruel but tempting us with those drinks, then taunting us by only showing part of each recipe is not very Craftster-friendly of you. Any chance we can talk you into sharing the complete recipes?  Cheesy

Ha ha, sure, but please note that I have not personally tried any of them. I added the recipes to the bottom of the original post on the front page. Cheers!
