Let's BBQ (and a recipe!)

I'm all about quick gifts...they're a must-have,
especially because I wait until the last minute
 OR simply forget until it's too late!

For my Top Dog Dies project today, I have an 
easy gift idea for the grillin' or BBQ lover
(another cool idea for Father's Day too!)

 I've paired up the Apron Card Die with the new "Adventure Collection" by
Authentique Paper.  

The 6X6 "Adventure" Paper Pad is really nice to have on hand when it comes
to cutting with the Apron Finishers Dies.

I also used the banner die from the Mason Jar Finisher Die Set
Above is a look at the card without the recipe tucked inside.

To your bottle of BBQ sauce, add a typed out or handwritten recipe to
the inside of the pocket.  I found this one on the Sweet Baby Ray's website:

1 bottle of Original Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
1 lb. of bacon slices (cut each slice in half)
1 can of chunk pineapple (drain juice completely)
1 box of wooden tooth picks
Wrap a piece of bacon around a pineapple chunk and secure it with a
 wooden toothpick. Place each appetizer in a shallow baking dish.
Brush each appetizer with SBR BBQ sauce. (Be generous!)
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until bacon is cooked completely.
Serve in baking dish if you wish. Serve warm, not hot.

Pair up the sauce with a nice set of grilling utensils, an apron or
add a gift card to their favorite outdoor's man shopping place!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
