DT-call over at Creatalicious

Hello crafters out there in blogworld!
Over at Creatalicious we're having a DT-call as a few of the older DT's had to leave us.  
Creatalicious Challenges

So we're looking for new DT members. We're 2-3 DT's short at the moment... So if you're interested in joining our lovely DT just add your name to the froggy at the end of the DT-call post and I will come around and check out your blog.

What do you have to do as a DT member at Creatalicious Challenges:

You need to create one project per month (sometimes we get images to work with) and comment on the entries (everyone has an allocated number). That's about it...

You don't need to have any DT-experience, you just need to have fun creating things.

This call will end with the year 2014  -  on December 31 at 11:55 pm (Middle European Time).

Looking forward to visit all your wonderful blogs!

Chocolate Smile

Hello Everyone!
Today we start the first challenge that I am hosting over at Creatalicious Challenges. As the lovely Vanessa had to step down as DT-Coordinator I took over so that we don't have to close Creatalicious Challenges.

And well, today is the big day for me...


For our November challenge Vanessa had picked the theme "Chocolate Flavor".
Well, the first thing that came to my mind when I read that theme was this...
Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is.
Everyone loves chocolate, even that little child.

So we're looking forward to everything chocolate related you come up with, may it be an image with chocolate in it, using the chocolate colours, a decorated box of chocolates...

This challenge is sponsored by our lovely Vanessa and her shop Scrappiness Designs
and the prize will be a $7 coupon!


I used one of those gorgeous images of Mo Manning to create my project. I decorated a small medal box...



Please hop over to the blog to take a look at the DT's gorgeous creations and to play along...
