CC&M Mega Recipe Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome blog hoppers to day 2 of the Creative Cuts and More MEGA recipe blog hop. Today you will find all kinds of inspiring albums made with the Holiday Treats Apron Kit! Plus we all will be sharing some of our own delicious recipes.

For my apron album I used just about everything included in the kit and added a few items of my own. For the front cover I used the stamp set " Something Sweet Set" from JustRite and I added a whole bunch of grosgrain & satin ribbon from my stash. I also used bigger rings then the ones included in the kit, because I simply made my album too fat...otherwise the album works just fine with the rings included. *EDITED* I will post tomorrow how to assemble the aprons for this album in 4 easy steps.

...and here is my recipe for today. You can click on the photo to enlarge it a bit. These cookie are really good, even though the ingredients sound a little strange. They are even better if you drizzle white or milk chocolate over them...Yummers!

In honor of the Mega Recipe blog hop CC&M is having a great sale. For the next five days CC&M will offer 20% off the entire store. But act quickly, its only for five more days-this sale will end on Nov. 14th. Make sure to enter this code recipebloghop2009 during checkout.

As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will of course give away great gifts. Each day we will give away one kit. Here is the twist - go through the blog hop, leave wonderful comments for all the great designers. After you have finished the blog hop, return HERE to DieCutDiva.com and instead of leaving a comment, you need to share a recipe to have a chance at winning the kit. Share the recipe on your blog and link it back and get another chance to win the kit. Help us also make this a great recipe swap!!!!

How adorably CUTE!!!! I love your front cover with the large gingerbreadman! I gotta case that! And what a cool idea to punch holes in the sides of the aprons to link them all together.
