Let the Baking Begin! (& a recipe too!)

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around our house as the baking begins! I truly love to cook and especially bake, which makes this one of my favorite times of the year. Over the next week and a half I will bake so much my feet will hurt, stress myself out, be grateful when it is all over with, and love every minute of it! The candy inside the goody bags is Rocky Road and I got the recipe from my awesome mom in law. Super easy recipe too: Melt 1lb chocolate almond bark, mix in one 7 oz jar of peanuts & one bag of miniature marshmallows, stir & drop on waxed paper with a teaspoon. Super easy and yummy!

These are the gifts for our son's teachers, and a few others at school. The digi stamp & sentiment are by the fabulous Roberta over at Prairie Fairy. And you can snag it as a free download too! Just click here. She has an amazing site and is gearing up to open her own digi store as well, so make sure to check her out!

I used my watercolor pencils on the reindeer, as well as red Stickles on his nose and a tiny piece of cotton for his tail which I then dabbed with ice Stickles. The cute little patterned paper I used for the toppers is by The Paper Studio & it is on clearance at HL. For the tag on the back I used my Cricut & Mini Monograms. The paper is by American Traditional Designs, the snowflakes are Studio G, & the "from" is an SU stamp. I used Studio G & Staz On ink as well.

I absolutely love this digi image and totally got the idea for these gifts from Roberta. I hope the teachers love them! She also put up the "snowman poop" version as a free digi too on Prairie Fairy and I plan on doing some gifts with that one later this week. So make sure to hop on over to her blog (sign up for her blog candy too!) & keep checking back here as I have more holiday crafty goodness to come! Happy Scrappin'!
