Crop Chocolate Chocolatier

I recently became a Crop Chocolate Chocolatier, which basically is a design team member for this online store. As part of the design team one of the requirements is to post pictures & a description of our creation to the Sweet Talk section once per quarter. The pictures are of projects we completed with products available from Crop Chocolate during the quarter.

It all started with this:

And here are the cards & layout I completed using the products from Memory Makers.

Book Recommendation ~ Potluck Club Series

The first book in the series

Six women. More problems. New secrets. The Potluck Club is back with a yummy casserole of characters, hilarity, and adventure in Summit View, Colorado! Club leader Evie continues to find newcomer Lisa Leann too tough to swallow, especially since the former Texan's new advice column causes rumors to rise faster than her famous instant-yeast cinnamon rolls. When one member stirs things up with a new 'do and a new outlook on life, the girls find themselves in a pickle as gossip takes over the group, a long-awaited romance doesn't go as planned, and the past comes back to haunt the club's youngest member. Seasoned with loads of faith, forgiveness, and friendship.

The second book in the series

The Potluck ladies are back with more adventures and more food to share. Once again each character has her own back story that takes special meaning in her life: Evie is trying to get attention of her sheriff boyfriend and somehow becomes engaged to another man; Goldie's former husband keeps trying to win her back, and Vonnie brings her long lost son to meet the family of the father he never knew. All of these characters and more are intertwined through their potlucks which bring a sense of togetherness to the story. Together, the women of the Potluck Club talk over their individual problems and issues and teach us about patience, love, and forgiveness.

The third book in the Potluck Club Series

Is the Potluck Club becoming the Bridesmaids Club? Wedding plans and romantic desires abound as the six friends continue to share food, friendship, prayer--and new adventures ranging from hilarious to dangerous!

Shocking rumors, family secrets, and a mountain avalanche threaten the friends' sense of security, their relationships, and even their lives. As Evangeline's wedding day draws near, Lisa Leann's matchmaking ways threaten to cause trouble in more than one relationship. Will the Potluck Club be able to put aside their differences and help each other survive the storms of life and love?

All 3 books are great reads to take with you to the pool or beach. ENJOY!
