Howdy blog hoppers! Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop! Today's hop will feature the 8" x 8" Treasued Family Recipes Kit! There are a total of 24 designers who will be creating awesome pages to help inspire you and also sharing some wonderful family recipes with us too! I can't wait to check it ALL out myself!! And I am so super excited to be a part of this! First, be sure that you arrived from Angie's Blog If not, be sure you started from DieCut Diva's Blog!...that is where all the wonderful goodness starts! Your next stop will be

I have created this for my daughter...I have spotlighted a couple of her favorite recipes here, and below is her ALL time favorite recipe, chicken spaghetti! (I will have this recipe typed out at the end of this post also.) Now, I have added my own stamps and embellishments, but the kit comes with everything you would need to create a keepsake album if you want though! The papers are just gorgeous in this kit, they just SCREAMED retro to me! LOVE that! And I gave everything an aged look by using distress inks and sponging the edges of EVERthing! LOL!

Now as part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days, we will offer 20% off the entire store!! But act quickly, it is only for six days – this sale will end on Nov 14th. Make sure you enter this code


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 the great designers. After you have finished the blog hop, return to DieCut Diva 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!!!

I am so looking forward to seeing some awesome recipes! And dont forget, tomorrow starting on the diecut Diva blog will be another hop ..."
