Let the Baking Begin!!!

Howdy and Happy Friday friends!!  It is another beauty of a day here in Texas and tonight is Homecoming for my son's high school!  Can't wait to get out to the stadium and enjoy the evening!

I have been working on a challenge this week from Fantabulous Cricut and I am ready to post it.  The challenge is to create something having to do with baking.  I LOVE to bake!  I've been thinking of doing a cookie recipe book to give to my sisters-in-law (I have 3!!) for Christmas and this challenge came along at the perfect time.  The idea kind of started a few months ago when I attended a class that showed us how to make the 'bones' of this book.  The neat thing about the class was that it was intended to give you several options - a book, banner, calendar etc.  I took that same idea and made my own cookie recipe book with some of our family favorites we enjoy at Christmastime!
