Chocolate Blog Hop

Next to diamonds, chocolate is a girl's best friend and in some cases it may even rank higher than diamonds. This hop takes some neat approaches to chocolate so I hope you can take the time to hop through and see how these crafters expressed their love of chocolate.

If you arrived here from Sandra's blog you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at Lorby's World with our Awesome Hostess Jearise!  But make sure you make it all the way to the end because Tee at One Scrap at a Time is giving away two files from The Cutting Cafe (http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/) to one lucky winner. Tee will have all the details on how to sign up for the drawing when you arrive at her blog.

So get your box of hidden chocolate and enjoy the hop...

We all have those weak moments where we just NEED to have some Chocolate and this is for you.....which is completely guilt free!

But seriously, one just never knows when that sweet craving is going to come on or when stress just overtakes us and we just KNOW that chocolate will be the "cure all"!  This is what I made for those situations:

Don't you agree that everyone should have one of these in EVERY ROOM of the house!!!  Just in case.....

But what I really like is this fabulous "Chocolate Inspired" wreath that I have made for a Christmas present for a very special someone!!!

The picture doesn't really do this wreath justice.  The colors are varying shades of browns (chocolate) and tans with a little bit of light blue thrown in for some contrast.  I used my Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart to cut the flowers out, then I rolled them. 

Thank you for coming today and now on to Lynne's blog to see what she does for her "Chocolate Fix".

Here is the entire line up in case you get lost along the way.

  4. That is a fun idea!!! and Very pretty wreath :)


  5. Wow! to all your projects. You put me, the hostess to shame, with your creations and the amount of work you did. I love those plaques and they would make the best conversation pieces and I'm sure someone in my family would sneak the candy and blame it on "I didn't do it." The wreath is beautiful! and whoever is getting it is going to be one very happy person. Thanks so much for being part of this hop.

  6. I really liked both your projects. We all definitely need a secret/emergency stash! & what a beautiful wreath!
