Guinness World Record: largest chocolate coin

Wen I read that the weekly challenge for week 47 was Guinness World Records I immediately knew which one I wanted to use, I had just read in the newspaper that Leuven ( which is only 20 minutes from where I live) was trying to beat the world record for largest chocolate coin. Now that is a record that should belong to Belgium, and they did it, yeah! 

So, now how to translate that into my journal, I searched my stash but have nothing to do with chocolate: no pattern paper, dies, embossing folder or stamps. Next I searched the net for some inspiration and found cute pictures of kids faces filled with chocolate and then it dawned upon me, I have such pictures of my son (from a couple of years back).
So I printed one out and created the page around this. 

I painted the background brown (color of milk chocolate), 
stamped the letter M all over (for mmmmm), 
found these pieces of gold metal in my scrap bin (which remind me of the gold packaging of the coins),
stamped a ruler across the page (because a lot of measuring will have been done to verify the record: 2.5m diameter; 22cm thick and 1 ton)
Finally added some chocolate looking hearts to the page, because I just love chocolate.


  1. What an adorable picture of your son! And the whole page together is excellent. Well done Belgian choclatiers for the new record! :D
