Cocktails and cards (Part 2)

Continuing on from Part 1...

Q: What happens when four scrapbookers get together for a girly celebration and decide to make cocktails?
A: They embellish!  Who needs a recipe when you can get creative with ingredients, quantities and methods?

Leah hosted a fun night in for her birthday and we certainly got creative.  We did actually start with a recipe each time, but the resulting concoctions were nothing like the original...  I took lots of non-incriminating photographs (of the drinks, not the drinkers!) and decided to start a little recipe book.  Here's the first page that I've finished:

("QF" is the abbreviated name of the shot drink. I didn't want to offend anyone with the full name! If you're curious, google it...)

# Fab'n'Funky ~ Challenge #30 ~ Get in Shape
I used a Maya Road Scroll Frame chipboard album page as my base.
# Flourishes ~ What's Cooking?
I didn't have a Flourishes stamp. The stamp I used is from Sande Kreiger's Autumn Leaves 'Talking in Circles' girl set
# Etsy Inspired ~ Challenge #96 ~ Octavia & Brown
I was inspired by this item
# The Town Scrapper ~ Friday Challenge ~ monochrome
I used patterned paper from Collage Press 'Joyride' - both sides of a double-sided sheet in shades of green.
# Create4Fun ~ Week 28 ~ Anything but a card
