A friend of mine asked me to make a cover for a cookbook she was making for her daughter.  We made a trade out for this.  She is teaching me how to make chicken paprikash...YUM!  So I agreed to do this for her.

I got an immediate picture of what I wanted to do.  I bought some Dylusions recently and I'm loving working with them.  I just new they would be perfect for this (and I love to play with them).  After I finished the colors I did some word art with my daughter to create the title.  I used some stickers I got from my sister, some food images I had and a Tim Holtz stencil.

Grapes from Anne's Cards 4 U
Strawberries - Anji's Antics
Coloring mediums - Copic markers, Glastique, Stickles, White gel pen
