Rainy Day Chocolate Stash!


Happy Monday!

Do you have a rainy day chocolate stash?   I'm thinking it's a good thing I don't!  It's been raining here for a week!

Paper Playtime's challenge theme for the next two weeks is Weather!

 I spotted Heidi's lovely happy girl embroidery image the other day, well it made me smile as soon as I saw her, so I snagged her for my project!   Thank you Heidi for your wonderful illustration!

She's printed on GinaK's digital canvas paper for some added interest!  I made a basic lidded box and stashed a little {Private Reserve} Russell Stover's chocolate inside.   yum!   No, I didn't eat it once the photo was taken...this time!!!  This little gift is going to leave the property in it's entirety!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope your Monday is a good one!
