My Sheri Crafts Challenge #117: National S'mores Day

My fellow designer, Raquel, chose National S'mores Day (Aug. 10th) and National Marshmallow Toasting Day (Aug. 30th) as her theme for our current My Sheri Crafts Challenge -- isn't she ever sooo clever?!  ;~) Her challenge to you is to create a project with chocolate or marshmallows on it!
I modified Spellbinders' Nested Tea Cup a bit by trimming the top edge down with an oval die and adding my 'hot chocolate' (also using the oval die) and tiny pom pom marshmallows behind. My tablecloth is from Papertrey Ink's Dotty Biscotti 8" paper pad, my place mat and doily die cut with Spellbinders' Floral Ovals from a coffee filter and my saucer from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream CS, using another oval die.
After cutting the spoon from SB's Tea Service, I brushed on silver Inka Gold Metallic Rub -- LOVE this new-to-me crafting goodie! JustRite's Winter Words (retired) acrylic stamps provided the perfect sentiment and a bit of chocolate twine finishes it all off.
Stop by My Sheri Crafts and peruse all the fabulous chocolate/marshmallow designs my fellow teamies created and add you OWN!
