What Makes You Sing?

Money Talks,,,Chocolate Sings
A creamy piece of Belgian chocolate direct from
Belgium is enough to make anyone´s taste buds
sing a pop tune or even an opera aria for that matter.
Louise from Tag Tuesday wants us to use our
scraps leftover from Christmas. I don´t have
any cardmaking scraps but I have plenty of
candy brochures and wrappers from all this
Christmas Belgian chocolate that we ate.
I know it´s a rough job but somebody has to do it.
I cut up a brochure to create a praline edge at the
bottom as well as the tasty piece my model is holding
in her hand. A blue foil wrapper is used as a collage
element including some of the brochure´s script.
This is all adhered to a watercolor background which I
stenciled with music notes and stamped with flowers.
Go pay Tag Tuesday a vist....you´ll like it and while
you are clicking around the web... go take a look at
Take a Word where the prompt is Music.

Yum...chocolate! You've been posting some really wonderful tags. I hadn't really thought about participating in the Paper Swap, but I have soooo much I probably should. I hope you had a lovely holiday, and best wishes for the New Year.

Are there any chocolates left over?? Very creative tag!

Evelyn S. said...

Yes! It's great! I am always in awe of people who can combine challenges, too. I have trouble doing one. ;-)

Oh NO
I had a comment malfunction!!!
Perhaps it's because I am high on my Saltine Toffee bits...smothered in YES Chocolat :)

Love your tag...you nailed it Ms Cyn!!!

Eeek! Belgian chocolate, pralines? I am just getting over the excesses of a Christmas diet and you are putting ideas into my head. I wonder if there is any chocolate left in my fridge!!
