Chinese Cooking

Wanna see what this Chinese girl cooked up with the lovely lovely Chinoiserie that is Graphic45's Birdsong collection?

It's a recipe book!  And since I don't cook (except when in danger of starvation), this is obviously to be given away to someone who actually does cook.  :)

This book is actually made from Graphic45's 8X8" Easel album.... disassembled, sliced and flipped inside out.... Its' really hard to explain in words, so maybe this will help:

 I was hoping to have little Graphic45 images on each page to match all the categories (soup, veggies, pork, beef, fish etc...) but the only one that I could find was the flying pig from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection....haha.. oh well.

Stamped Metal Brads - large
Bird Song 12x12 Pad - I used all the different designs of pattern paper in the pad so that each page in the book is different
Bird Song Stickers

String - May Arts
Dimensional Pearls - Ranger

Haha cute title. Btw, I can't cook to save my life either! We are such a rare breed I'm so glad to hear that from you. Everyone seems to be a domestic goddess cupcake fairy these days.
