This week at Crafty Creations it is my turn to set the challenge. I chose CHOCOLATE. Friday is National Chocolate Day so make sure to eat lots!!!! The challenge is to make something that holds chocolate, tastes like chocolate, is chocolate, is the color of Chocolate. You must check out he blog for the other DT inspirations. Delish! This week we are sponsored by Art's Alley , a shop on Esty. They have some cute stuff at great prices too. So check them out and make sure to enter for a chance to win this weeks prize at Crafty Creations.

I took two petal envelopes to make this cute little treat holder. Which I totally copied from Anne Marie's Blog. I had some 3x3 petal envelopes so they are about a 6x6 total size and traced it on cocoa and a pp from CTMH cut and folded up 2 petals on each. Wrapping one around the other that I tucked inside. Stamped a cupcake and embossed the topping and cut out the cup part from the reverse scrap from the envelope. I veramarked the rest on the cupcakes and stamped sweet and embossed them. The little tag is cut using the nesties labels one set. Stamped on the Hey there Cupcake sentiment hole punched and strug through the cocoa ribbion.

Stamps: Cupcake sprinkles set, "sweet" from For Baby set, cupcake from Good Times set. all CTMH.

Inks: Versamark

embossing powder: Seafoam white

Ribbon is Cocoa from CTMH

Papers are all from the Emporium collection CTMH- cocoa and heavenly blue stock.

Chicken update: Last Saturday the boys and I got the Chicken pen up outside, so they are loving the outside. The boys love hand feeding them worms, so mom ends up digging for worms quite a bit. We are getting eight eggs a day so they are all laying. It is so funny to watch them in the morning when Jake or jason go to open the outside door they follow them to the door and hop out fast as can be.

Jake update: well after 2 1/2 hours in the doctor office and 2 sets of xrays they decided that his foot isn't broken so no more cast. Just a nice bruise on the bone and he is back to tearing up the gravel full force again.

Great news about Jake! I'm so glad my boys haven't broken anything (hope it stays that way) my son fell backwards and flipped head over heels off a swing at the park yesterday and it was one of those moments where all you can do is look in horror as it happens so quickly!! He was sore, but otherwise fine. phew!
I love your challenge this week and that is a lovely chocolate holder!!
