So Sandra said Gotta Craft has just got in the new Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate range, how do you fancy some Fancy Pants? And I said Fantastic!
As I spread it out on my desk I started to realise that actually I really, really like COLD chocolate and so I made this:
It's a page about a little habit we've got into of a winter evening. It's becoming a ritual. Every night, once everyone has eaten, they tend to scatter round the house plugged into gadgets or whatever else it is teenagers do in their rooms with the door closed. But I've discovered that the offer of a choc pop around eight-ish always brings them back out . I send someone on a "lolly-run" to the freezer and we gather together again, just like that. As long as I remember to keep the freezer stocked.
I built up the layers and texture on this, so that it reminded me of ice crystals, and added some pops of bright yellow to make that beautiful chocolate coloured paper look even richer. The journaling cards are by Jenni Bowlin and Sandra has some new ones in here. The chipboard accents are Crate Paper and they are here. And the title is done with Echo Park alpha stickers from a previous Gotta Craft kit.
So, if you're looking for me and I'm not about? You know what the ad says..Mum's Gone To Iceland.
Postscript: Happy Last Day Of November! It's December tomorrow. Oh yes! I very much want to thank everyone who Christmas Clubbed this week. I had a wonderful time enjoying everyone's memories and I hope you did too. Please continue to add your story here or think about joining us next Sunday when I'll be rolling out the Christmas Club welcome mat again. But I'll see you before then?
