My hairdresser Amanda is getting married in October

and I didn't know what to get her but she is getting married in a barn and coming down "the aisle" in an actual John Deere tractor so I wanted to get her something with a "country-feel" to it so I came up with this idea. I found a plain white tin and decorated it with rooster paper and then I found some rooster recipe cards at AC Moore. But at the time I only found 1 pack. I had everyone hunting high and low for more rooster recipe cards. Thank goodness my stamping friend Shelley in MA found 5 more packs and shipped them to me so I could complete my project!!! Thank you so much Shelley!! Anyway, I finished my recipe box - I copied down 75 of my favorite recipes and stuck them in Amanda's box so I hope she likes this gift. Here is the finished gift....

That's a fantastic gift. I would have loved it if my mother had given me something like that when I got married. Betty Crocker and I got to know each other quite well in those early days! lol
