Easter is finished - the chocolates have all gone (well nearly) but left behind a reminder of why they should be eaten in moderation - in other words those extra pounds are all those chocolates!! But at least I thought I was being good - I didnt buy any - the kids had some but ate it before Easter Sunday. We had family visiting on Easter Sunday so I thought I would make us a White Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert - its Easter..... (dont even think about getting out your calculator to work out the calories - it would break). However they came over from Dubai and bought us some Patchi chocolate.......now here is where it all goes wrong. Having lived in Dubai's neighbouring town Abu Dhabi for a few years, Patchi chocolate would have to be my ultimate treat now. It is a well known Middle Eastern Chocolate of Lebanese orgin and so it should be - luxuriously package pieces of delicious milk or plain chocolate with various flavours........a weak will power and I find myself reaching for one as soon as I walk pass the tin! So next week when half term is over I will be hitting the gym....in the meantime one more chocolate wont hurt of will it?

This weeks Challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges is One Layer - You may have one layer of cardstock other than your image and base. You could even just stamp on your base card. Its up to you But you may use as many embellishments as you want eg. flowers,ribbon, buttons etc.

I got this topper in a Sugar Nellie Swap a while back so thought it would be great to use it now as it suits the challenge. The topper is mounted onto purple bazill cardstock and the mounted onto the base card. The ribbons have come from my stash. Quick and Easy.
