Chocolate Covered Snowflakes


Doesn't that sound yummy??? Of course anything (or almost anything)sounds good as long as it's covered with chocolate!


A while ago there there was a challenge on SCS that called for brown snowflakes. I loved it and it became one of my all time favorite SCS challenges. When I saw this Scenic Route paper it reminded me of that challenge. I stamped the background paper with the Snowflake Stamps (only $2.69 through the end of the week) and added Stardust pen to for a little shimmer. The snowflake in the center of the scalloped circle was cut out in layers and either distressed with ink, colored with stardust pen or popped up on dimensionals. The pretty sentiment is from American Art Stamp.



BLOG CANDY ALERT!! I have a bunch of Goodies from Paper Addiction to give away... designer paper from Imaginisce & Basic Grey, rub-ons, brads, stamps and ribbon. A stuffed goodie bag of all your favorite things!! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. PLUS as an added bonus I more goodies to give away to anyone that posts this blog candy giveaway on their blog... just email me at michelle@paperaddiction.com with your blog address OR use the create a link option at the bottom of this post (I'm not sure how it works 'cause I haven't used it yet!?!?) Either way I have 2 goodie bags to give away to some lucky winners!


Thanks for reading my blog... I really appreciate it! Oh yeah... one last thing. If you don't have an email listed on your blogger profile then please leave either an email address or a SCS screenname. Thanks!
