Overflowing with Chocolate!

Challenge #1 at the Crop Chocolate crop was to draw inspiration from a Target
store ad. sorry, no image, but it was very RED and had a grid pattern.....thus,
my entry above!
Challenge #2 was a "dinner menu" challenge.....this one was a hoot! We chose
items from a list on day one, and day 2, we found out what our choices meant!
I chose Steak as my entree, which meant to use predominately brown, my
appetizer was Potato Skins (can I just interrupt with a YUM,
it meant I had to use a square on my LO (I used a raw chipboard frame, and
embossed it using a Tim Holtz (TH) folder and my quikutz hand tool (can I say
TIME CONSUMING AND uber cool!)....I finished that
off with suede glimmer mist and vintage photo ink to pop the embossing,
next on the menu--soup or salad.....I was a garden salad, which meant BLING
(YAY!). I used glimmer mist on almost, and I also added pearls
to my starfish (shout out to Heather for sending me this little wooden ornament
to embellish!), and what meal is complete without dessert?? No meal of mine,
I I had chocolate mousse which was using chipboard in your title.
Mine is chipboard, course, with more lovely glimmer mist (dragonfly!). The word
"net" was a wee bit easier...just ran that thru the cuttle bug and then misted and
inked. I this this was my favorite!
Challenge #3 was an easel card......I used BG bittersweet and the circle stamp is
BG as well. I got a chance to use my new MS hydrangea punch as well!
Challenge #4 was to make an altered word art project. This banner is soooo
pretty in person....the pic just doesn't do it justice. I was up until 2am trying to
get a good pic.....and then tried in the light the next's just not very
photogenic......what can I This one was made with the Christmas
Magic collection from FP and MM glitter jigsaw letters AND those pretty
crystals on the bottom are from Maya Road.
Challenge #5 was a "scraplift" a shout out to runzalot81 over at CC for
my inspiration. I've never been a big "scraplifter"......this actually is my very
first! It was fun to change it up while trying to keep some of that original
"peeking out". I used BG bittersweet, and who knew I'd use my pink MM
Sabrina collection to scrap one of my I bought it for cards.....well
here you go, life is always full of

Challenge #6 (below) was a thankful journal. I did my using that front
"throw away" sheet out of the Echo Park "Walk in the Park" collection
(never throw that away....use it for cards or altered projects!) and I also
used the sticker sheet to embellish. I can tell you one thing I'm thankful
for.....Crop Chocolate and their awesome crop!! What a fun weekend!
