Hey Boo Boo...we need a Picinic Basket for our CHOCOLATE:)



Did you love to watch Yogi Bear when you were a little girl? I did. It was my favorite show. When I decided to make this picnic basket I immediately thought of Yogi Bear. I think a PICINIC basket filled with chocolate covered cherries is the ultimate in summer fun. That's right... FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE is the challenge today at Stamptacular's Sunday Challenge. You can use it anyway you want. I used it several ways First, I used a stamp set called Sweet Chocolate by My Cute Stamps. Second, I used both Choc Chip ink and paper. Third, I filled my basket with homemade chocolate covered cherries. You can find the recipe for these fabulous things HERE

PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL BE POSTING A TUTORIAL ON HOW I MADE THIS BASKET ON MONDAY. PLEASE CHECK BACK:)

Here is a what the basket looks like on the front and back. My chocolate covered cherries (not the real ones;) have been stamped twice, cut out and popped up with dimensionals. I also coated the chocolate part with Crystal Effects.



Here is the inside with the cherries nestled inside some parchment paper. So, who am I giving this too? It will probably never go farther than my kitchen. My family is taking care of eating the cherries and my daughter has asked for the basket. How can I refuse:)?

Make sure you check out all the other really awesome things my fellow design team members made. Such a fun challenge. I hope you can play this week. Our sponsor this week is Die Cut Dreams. Check out the fun things on their website HERE.
