Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. We had one heck of a thunderstorm in the night but it's warm and sunny again now.

Years ago I downloaded a freebie chocolates decoupage sheet from here and never got around to using it but when I saw the challenge theme of 'a friend with chocolate' at Words 2 Scrap By I thought this would be perfect. I teamed it up with some paper which is a very old magazine freebie so I'm also entering it in the Mod Squad challenge 'use pattern paper'

I must admit that I think it would have looked much better CAS without papers and with thicker sticky pads under the decoupage to give it more depth - so will have to try that some time.

Well I guess it's time for a little siesta out in the garden now. Thanks for dropping by and for all your lovely comments

Way to use that forgotten sheet - perfect for the challenge! Love how you layered the scalloped sheet - looks like the lining of a candy box!!! Thanks for playing along with the Words 2 Scrap By challenge.
