We have a wonderful neighbour and friend who looks after our golf cart while we are at home in Canada. We found out the hard way a few years ago, that electric golf carts don’t really like either idleness or hot weather. Seven new batteries later (that is how many you need to run these things), we didn’t need a repeat of that lesson. I decided to make a Thank You card for our cart caregiver.
One of the themes for submissions for the next issue of Creative Scrapbooker was recycling a cookbook. Because my roomies here in Phoenix are enthusiastic garage and estate salers, I asked them to be on the look out for an old cookbook that I could possibly use for the submission. It wasn’t long before they came back with a perfect one that was in my price range of a dollar. It was a 1953 Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, complete with old fashioned pictures and life lessons.
I set about making a layout using it. I admit that Vintage is NOT my strong suit and not my favorite style, but I did like the resulting page. So my friends, the operation was successful, but apparently the patient died as my layout was not selected for the magazine.
In order to justify the $1.00 investment, I am publishing it here instead.
