It was always going to be chocolate

Good afternoon are you enjoying the sunshine?  It's glorious here I wish it was going to stay but it's ment to change here in Wiltshire this week.  Typical for half term!!!

Anyway as you know I am on a scrapping roll and have managed a few more this weekend.  Over on UKscrappers there is an inspiration and challenges board which I have been visiting quite a lot and trying to take part in as many challenges as I can.   

There are two challenges I am submitting this LO to.  Simple recipes which is here and the Uks house weekly challenge May week 3 here.     The house challenge was to scrap a large event, use a non standard size photo and to use 3 items _ brads, buttons bling.   The large event part is a picture of my wedding cake.  I am a huge chocoholic and don't really like normal cake and I can't stand buttercream!!  I knew straight away what I wanted.  My MIL and mother were both whinging at me the whole run up to the wedding that it wasn't right I wasn't having a traditional cake and how it would be embarrassing........   Well they certainly had a shock when they saw it!!  My cake decorator ( a friend) did a fantastic job and made all of the chocolates herself.  It took a few weeks to make.  

The larger photo is a spare photo I had.  It was damaged so I thought the quicker it gets in to an album the better!  I do have one in my official wedding album but I wanted one in my scrapbook too. 

I have also added 3 pieces of bling. 

For the simple recipes the colour combination to use was Mint Chocolate chip, Strawberry Ice Cream and Chocolate Ice cream which I managed.  I have also used more than one type of alphabet.  You had to add something from your most recent stash which was the heart dies.  What I didn't manage to add was a grey or another neutral colour unless I can get away with cream??

Here is a close up of my gorgeous cake. 

Thank you for visiting and if your looking for some inspiration or a challenge pop on over to UKScrappers.
