It's the CHRISTMAS IN JULY blog hop!

Welcome to the Cookin' Up Creations CHRISTMAS IN JULY BLOG HOP, hosted by the Master Chef Challenge Team!

It might be the middle of summer, and the temperatures outside may be soaring, but here at Cookin' Up Creations we're hearing holiday carols and maybe the distant sound of sleigh bells .... Have you ever told yourself, as you hurry in the last couple of weeks before the holidays to get all of your cards, tags, decorations and gifts completed, that "next year I'll start all of this way ahead of time so I'm not rushing around at the last minute"? Well, that's why we're here -- to help you get a head start on your Christmas crafts! All of us are excited to show you the holiday projects we've been working on, and we can't wait to inspire you!

Here's the order for our CHRISTMAS IN JULY blog hop:
Cookin' Up Creations blog (you're here!)
Annie Collins
Barb Prendergast
Cassy Suszek

Be sure to leave a comment on each team member's blog, as well as on this one, for your chance to win a prize package valued at more than $50 from a*muse / studio consultant Renee Zieglmeier. The winner will be chosen at random from among the blog hop and crop participants.

And be sure to join us Friday, July 20 through Sunday, July 22 on the Cookin' Up Creations forum  for the CHRISTMAS IN JULY CROP! There will be more holiday inspiration, challenges and games.  There will be more chances to win the a*muse studio prize package! Another lucky winner will have the chance to be GUEST CHEF OF THE MONTH on the forum in August. You will find more details on the forum.

And now ... on to the CHRISTMAS IN JULY blog hop, starting with Annie's blog! Just wait until you see the project she's waiting to show you ....
