Altered Dictionary - E

Oh my goodness I am loving this challenge hahaha!!!  Here are my pages for 'E'.  I had a lot of problems with them...my own fault for fiddling with the page too much...I still don't think its right!  I folded 2 pages in the centre to make flaps which are tied with ribbon.  They open to reveal another recipe.  I actually may use this one as it does sound delicious.


Did you know that raw elderberries are poisonous?????  I didn't either & I remember scoffing them when Mum used to make wine with them.  Apparently more than a few can really make you poorly!


I found the background pics of elderberries on the web and thank whoever put it there as its fabulous.  The bottles are stamped from a PaperArtsy stamp.  I think I may go a little more arty for the next one haha

So ...are you playing along with us over at The Craft Barn??????  There have been an amazing lot of entries  so far, well worth a gander!  Thank you so much for looking today, HUGS xxx

I love how unique your pages are with the folded pages between to hold the recipe! Well done! I love the bottles along the bottom just waiting to be filled with syrup.
