Paper Playtime - Cool Off With Water

This week's challenge at Paper Playtime is to create a project with the theme 'Cool Off With Water'.  My favourite way to cool off with water is to go to the beach!  However I did a beach themed layout for the last challenge, so this week I chose to focus on my second favourite way to cool off - fun drinks!  These are not necessarily alcoholic drinks - my two favourites are just very simple additions of fruit to a beverage!. But if you are looking for some fun party drinks, I am sure adding a splash of vodka or some white wine to either would be delicious!! :)  I made a super cute recipe book using costars for the covers, and trimmed some white cardstock to size for the pages.  Each page is stamped with 'Ingredients' and 'Servings' on the front, and 'Instructions' on the back.  Hope you enjoy!  Be sure to head over to Paper Playtime to see what the other designers have come up with, as well as to submit your 'Water' themed project for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor, My Pink Stamper!!

I would love it if you would share your favourite drink recipes in the comments so that I can fill up my book (and begin tasting)!!  :)
