Today, I am here to share with you a retro altered family recipe book that is done recently that I have always wanted to do. Finally, during the Chinese New Year long holiday, I have some personal time to start making this book. I am quite satisfied with the whole design outcome and now I can't wait to input my mum's recipes. Hopefully, I can pass this recipe book down to my own children. =)
