Anything Goes @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Hello again :)
Just one more week untill the Big Day, and like every year I can’t understand how to get everything finished in time. I just hope that when the day arrive things are like they always have been - they usually do…
Today is Wednesday, and that means it’s time for a new challenge over at 
 This week the theme is (the one we all love):

This week we have 2 sponsors:
Visit I ❤️ ProMarkers to read about their prizes.

For our Anything goes Challenge I have made a new page for my recipe book.
I have used the same image as I used for last weeks challenge, it’s called Pillsbury SnoBoy, and is from our sponsor Stitchy Bears.
With the image I used several snowflakes, made with both dies and punches, to decorate with. I found the big, glittered snowflake at a fleamarket. I also used some pompom-ribbon, cheesecloth, pearlstrings, halfpearls and seambindingribbon.
On the recipe tag I used a snowflakeshaped eyelet, some twine and ribbon, some halfpearls and a punched snowflake.
The recipe is handwritten.
Of course the image is coloured with ProMarkers - and has a little glitter on the SnoBoy himself…
The page is made with a «pocket» to put the recipe tag into.

The recipe pulled a bit out of the pocket:

How to make the Snowballs with Limoncino:
You’ll need:
200 grams marzipane
1 teaspoon grated lemonpeel
2 tablespoons limoncino
3 tablespoons icing sugar
150 grams white chocolate
grated coconut
Knead together marzipane, lemonpeel, limoncino and icingsugar. Form into small icingballs and let cool while melting the white chocolate.
Dipe the snowballs in the white chocolate, then roll them in grated cocnut.
(PS I always wear glowes making these)

(In my blogpost last week for I ❤️ ProMarkers you can see the snowballs in some of the pictures, you can find it here, or just scroll down.

(Here’s the frontpage of my recipe book, made years ago when I was new to scrapping and cardmaking. I guess I could have made it a lot better today, but it is kind of fun looking through the pages and see the progress I’ve made):
