Chocolate Therapy

Hi everyone
Had a lovely week this week having celebrated both my birthday and my 1st wedding anniversary and I thought I was going to get through both without having a chocolate fix when my friend Margaret saved the day with a lovely box of the Belgian variety!

To further indulge my little cravings (of the none crafting type) I thought we'd indulge in a little chocolate therapy but first here is the winner from last weeks challenge. Some wonderful tags entered last week but only one winner and that is


Congrats Carol, drop us a line if you would like to be a guest designer

So here's some chocolate indulgence from the team


For your last Rolo - Do you love anyone enough???




Oh wow I need some of that!
Hope you all have a wonderfully indulgent week with all you would wish for within it!
Bye for now

x Michelle

Womens day - Tags

Loved your song inspired entries last week - you sure do rise to our challenges - there can only be one winner though so Mr random Generator has done his stuff - congratulations to number


Thanks - do email us to claim your prize and chat about a guest design spot.

So Our theme this Tag week is chosen by the wonderful Ildiko and she has gone with something from her home Country (although it is celebrated low key in this country too) international womens day.

So on your tag this week we would like to see women featured somewhere. Ildiko also has a celebration on the 10th as its her name day! We have it on good authority there will be lots of drinking going on that day LOL!

Fabulous team mates

Dont forget our advance theme for altered art week at the end of March is to alter a frame- to any theme. We give you this in advance as altered art takes a lot of preparation so this gives you more planning time.

So over to you fellow artists have fun celebrating Women everywhere this week but dont forget it must be a TAG!
