We are doing recipe layouts at Bo Bunny. Keeping to limited supplies doesn't have to mean that your page looks sparse, in fact, sometimes a picture is strong enough that you really don't need to throw the kitchen sink at it. For this layout, I was able to use 3 patterned papers, 1 package of stickers and 1 package of embellishments. We were also allowed to use a sheet of cardstock, but I changed the recipe to suit my personal tastes and added a bow instead.
