Chocolate Wrapper & my 1st little movie tutorial (well maybe) !!

Another creation for Scrapbook Boutique, continuing with the Christmas in July theme.  I tend to make these chocolate covers for a special little gift at Christmas, doesn't cost alot to make but makes the recipient feel oh so special that you have taken the time to dress up a block of chocolate!
Assembling the rosette is a no brainer, check out the tutorial here at the Scrapbook Boutique store.

Did you catch the wonderful announcement over at the blog?...... We have a brand new teamie, the very, very talented Narelle Riley from Scrapparazzi
 As you have probably noticed, I do NOT a scrapbook, but looking at Narelle's layouts I am feeling the itch to give it a go- but let's not rush things, it starts with a though, will see where that thought goes.
If it is meant to be it will be!
