Hello Everyone. Thank you for popping in, I value you taking the time, and if you are able to leave a comment, I love to see/hear what you think of my humble offerings.
Today's post is a chocolate wrapper that I entered into a competition organised by Christine Emberson and her blog is Creativity Continues I think most of you know her. I especially like her Friday Die days and her charity kits. The brief was to use a Spellbinders die. I went the whole hog and all of the dies, apart from one, are Spellbinders. I wanted to keep the colouring to a certain chocolate corporate purple too. 
Her son Elliott has a blog too Hope and Chances
I was one of the five winners (my first in crafting ever!) and won the novel "The Chocolate Lover's Christmas" by Carole Matthews ( a brilliant read), a box of chocolates and a tiara.
The next stage of the competition was to send in a photograph wearing the tiara and displaying the book. Sadly I missed the deadline as I was on holiday but I had great fun deciding where to have my photo taken. I got a few strange looks posing in front of the Chocolate Museum in Havanna, Cuba!  I think the look on my face says "hurry up, people are staring at me".
