Recipe Challenge Monday

Hey y'all! It's Monday, and time for another recipe challenge. How does an energizing recipe sound? Now many of you may think of a recipe that you could actually eat for this challenge, but I had these great digi images from Busy Beauties that I got a couple of weeks ago, and I knew immediately that I would be going in search of an energizing bath salts recipe so that I could use these wonderful new images! Wouldn't a batch of this be a great Christmas gift for someone? You could include the recipe page as part of the gift. Now, if I can only find time to make all the pages along with the soaking salt. I used some of my wonderful goodies from Scrapbook Store at Your Door for this page. The paper is from the Porcelain Collection by Basic Grey, the flowers are die cuts, and the centers of the flowers are some of those fabulous rhinestones that come in a strip. I colored Miss Busy Beauty with my SU inks and a blender pen, using the soft yellow and rust tones that were in the background of this beautiful lacey DP. Those die cut flowers that Julie sent were the perfect compliment. I cut the actual recipe out with my new Nestabilities, and sponged some Antique Linen Tim Holtz distress ink over the paper before removing it from the Nestie. This was a super easy page to put together, and I really am going to give this bath soak a try. All those oils sound so wonderful for a relaxing and rejuvenating spa day. Why don't you play along with us this week, and give us your best energizing recipe ideas! Just stop by The Recipe Challenge Blog, and link up your creation for everyone to enjoy.
I really appreciate you spending some time with me today! As always, it's a blessing to have you!! Please be sure to get your name in the hat for the blog candy I'm giving away! It's a biggie!!! That post is going up next!!! Have a blessed day, and Happy Stamping!!
Love Ya!
