A Little Yummy for Your Tummy

I know I've previously documented how the boys at work love my Rocky Road, well this week Chris told me he got into BIG trouble by his girlfriend for not taking her some last time I made it. Well we can't have that can we, so I made another batch on Monday night. After I'd made it I looked and thought, 'that's not even going to touch the sides' so i made another batch. Believe me by Tuesday lunchtime the whole company was so sugar loaded if the drug squad had come through we would definitely have had trouble explaining. When I cut it up into squares, I snaffled two pieces and made a little presentation box for Chris to pass on. This is how it looked:

Here's my recipe, I was told this batch was the best I'd ever made. Enjoy!

125g unsalted butter
200g plain chocolate
200g milk chocolate
3tbsp golden syrup
200g milk chocolate digestives
mini marshmallows
chopped mixed nuts
Melt the butter golden syrup and all chocolate together and stir until it is smooth (resist the urge to stick your finger in and lick it!).
  1. Batter the biscuits to bits, try and keep them a bit chunky.
  2. Stir the biscuits, mixed nuts and marshmallows into the chocolate mixture.
  3. Pour into a greased dish and refrigerate overnight until solid.
  4. Cut into squares and stuff your face.
Top tip

I've used all sorts of different chocolate from reall good quality to Asda smart price the best comments came with the Asda chocolate, so save your money.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies
Florist wiresflorist paper tapepaper flowers - they need to have a 'tail' on them, I used these card stock to make leaveseither a leaf punch or die to cut leaves, I used these distress ink Cut as many leaves as you think you will need and ink …


Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
