My tribute to Terry's

Polka doodles chocolate challenge:

As a self confessed chocoholic, I thought I'd find this one easy, but how to pay homage to the smooth silky calorie laden stuff?  I struggled, nothing was good enough, nothing even came close.  However, it did set the mind racing and the taste buds tingling.  Memories came flooding back.  As a child, the grown ups always got the boxes of chocs, the Dairy Box, Milk Tray and Black Magic.  I always coveted the golden booty that was Terry's All Gold.  If you were lucky enough to get a choice, I would always go for the Lime flavoured one that looked as though it was in a little pouch, tied with a choccy chord.  So there it was, my decoupage, called chocolate girl was teamed with a green contrast and chocolate coloured paper and trims.  It was finished off with a huge chocolate button, which is very glossy (you can't tell from the photo. Papers are Polka doodles and Craftwork cards, don't know who the decoupage comes from, and the candy is also from Craftwork cards.  Happy chocolate dreams.
