What's Cookin' Good Lookin'?

Hey scrappy peeps! I hope you are enjoying your day! Today has been QUITE the stressful one already... My stepdad had open heart surgery last night and things were touch and go, but praise God he is awake and talking today! :) So I guess complaining about the fact that my car died last night and we had to have it towed this morning AND my washing machine has been out of commission for three weeks now so we had to buy a new one today is kind of inappropriate. I am very grateful that God has seen fit to heal Robert and I pray for his complete restoration soon. I pray for complete restoration of the car too! :)

SOOOO, on another complete note, my sister is not yet TECHNICALLY engaged but is planning on being married within the next year or so.... It's a longer story than that, but anyways... I'm making my sister a recipe box because she is always asking me for recipes on some of my favorite dishes. I just finished altering the box and now I need to work on the recipe cards, so I may have to revisit the theme of this post later on! :)

I had to go with the steampunk theme because it's so feminine but not... just like my sister. :) And of course, it had to be a LITTLE sassy! :) 

I used Steampunk Josephine to add  some sassiness to the back of the box and created this project for the Craft My Life "Anything but a Card" challenge that is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs this week.

I am also submitting this to Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes challenge as well as Through the Craft Room Door's Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! :)
