Mojo Monday 172 - Eat Chocolate Stamp Set

It's a new year, and there are more Design Challenges to enter!  I really enjoy the Mojo Monday one, and it is a always exciting when I can get to it on a Monday!

This layout is really not something I normally do in my own work, so it was stretch for me.  But I love my new set Eat Chocolate from the new Stampin Up Occasions Mini catalog, and I knew it would be perfect for this layout. Picking a good color combination was hard since I knew I wanted a lot of browns, but I went with Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, and Ridinghood Red. I love my Big Shot Embossing folders, and the square lattice one gave me some fun texture that almost mimics a cork board to hang my to do list.  I used my spiral border punch and love the fun note pad feeling that gives!  And any good notepad is a little distressed, so crumpling and sponging worked for me there. My Jumbo Brad felt like a giant push pin too!  Love those little guys!

I didn't use actual brads as indicated by the layouts since my stamp had the 3 square check boxes. I think that works just as well in this case! I also inked only the saying at the bottom of the stamp to use as my highlighted rectangle strip.
