Russell Stover Moments (Little Yellow Bicycle Just Because)


My Mom bought Russell Stover chocolates for holidays and when company was coming over. She used to hide the boxes in the dining room hutch but my sisters and I knew they were there and yes, we'd occasionally sneak one. Back in "those" days the boxes weighed one pound and Mom's price point for stocking up was $3.99. Now they're only 12 ounces and run about $9.99! I recently bought the milk chocolate collection for nostalgia's sake (surprisingly finding it on sale around Valentine's Day for...$3.99!) After I bought the box, I decided to do a layout about this memory. At first I was going to use a portion of the box on my layout but then decided to use the freshness wrap instead. This is probably the first layout I've ever done that even comes close to being "scratch 'n sniff" because the freshness wrap smells like the chocolates. Yum!
