Singing "Lena" for the Eurovison Song Contest 2010 - a Chocolate Box

Hurra, ich hab's geschafft! Am Wochenende habe ich die restlichen 200 Seiten von "Bis(s) zum Ende der Nacht" gelesen. Und auch wieder etwas gebastelt. :-)

Yippie! This weekend I have read the remaining 200 pages of "Breaking Dawn". And started stamping again. :-)

Eine kleine Geschenk-Box für zwei Schokoladen-Täfelchen! 
A small gift box for two chocolates!
Das Image ist mit Twinkling H20 coloriert und das ausgestanzte "congrats" mit 3D-Klebern aufgeklebt.

The image is colored with Twinkling H20 and the sentiment is popped up with 3D-pads.

Und die gibt es auch zu einem bestimmten Anlass: Diese Woche gibt es den Eurovision Song Contest (oder auch "Grand Prix" - wie ich ihn immer noch gerne nenne). Ich bin ein großer Fan und sehe den Grand Prix seit 1986 (jedes Jahr)! Interessanterweise hat in dem Jahr ein Mädchen namens Sandra (Kim) gewonnen...

And for a particular occasion: This week is the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC). I am a big fan and watch the ESC since 1986 (every year)! Interestingly, in that year a girl named Sandra (Kim) won the contest ...

For all my readers who don't come from Europe - a short explanation what the ESC is about: Almost each European Country sends a singer or band to this Contest with a song representing the country. This year the Contest is in Oslo, because last year a Norwegian singer has won the contest. Here you can find his winner-Song "Fairytale" which sounds a little irish (that's at least what I think)! I love this contest, because some of the songs and contestants have really nice songs, but I also love it, because every year there are who are pretty weird! Actually some years the german songs are the weirdest - don't let me think of 2009, when the german contestant (in silver leggings) had Dita von Teese on stage with very little to dress and a whip in her hand, that song was called "Miss Kiss Kiss Bang"... (still ROFL about that when I think of that embarrassing performance).

Dieses Jahr schickt Deutschland ja Lena nach Oslo und deshalb habe ich die "lieder singende Charlotte" einfach mal in Lena umbenannt und sie hat zumindest dunkles Haar bekommen.

 This year Germany sends Lena as a contestant to Oslo and I renamed the "singing Charlotte" to "Lena" and at least I made her hair brown like Lenas. If you haven't heard her song "Satellite" yet, please click here for the youtube-Video. It's a really catchy song - I think which gets better by every time I hear it. Actually I hum it in the bathroom in the morning - if you hear me doing that you probably won't like the song anymore... ;-)

Da wir am Samstag eine kleine Grand Prix-Party feiern, gibt es natürlich auch ein kleines Tipp-Spiel, wer denn die Top 5 schafft und welchen Platz Lena schaffen wird. Der Gewinner darf sich über diese kleine Box freuen und noch ein paar Pralinen freuen:

On Saturday we celebrate the ESC with a little party, I will do a little betting game for it, guessing the top five and Lena's final place. The winner will get this little box and some Pralines:

Stamps: Lieder singende Charlotte (Singing Charlotte) by Whiff of Joy,
Flower Stamps by SU
Ink: Brilliance
Embellishments: Stickles, Organza Ribbon
Colored with Twinkling H2O

Und so sieht es dann nach dem Öffnen aus. Lecker! :-)
Die Schokolade ist mit kleinen Glue Dots auf der Rückseite an der Schachtel festgeklebt.

And this is how it looks like after opening. Yummy! :-)
The chocolate is attached to the box with small glue dots on the back.

Wenn ihr auch den ESC mögt, schaut diese Woche zu meiner nächsten Post wieder vorbei: Am Freitag nach dem zweiten Halbfinale poste ich meinen Tipp für das Finale!

If you also like the ESC please come back for one of my next posts this week. I will post my own bets on Friday after the second semifinal!

Marlene said...

What a neat contest - love the card you made depicting it, too!

Oh my gosh - that chocolate looks like really YUMMY chocolate! (I can tell by the wrapper, and the fact that it's not American chocolate, which pretty much sucks! LOL!)

Great project Sandra, I see you've been to Aldi Lol (get the chocolate myself there as well). Thank you for joining us at CRAFT Challenge for our blogaversary challenge and good luck.

Thank you for your comment on my giftbox. You can find it at Angela's aka Toucan Scraps' shop at Stitchy Bear Stamps, but without the 3D part of it. Hope looking at the giftbox will easily show you how to do it. Very easy really, cut out, fold and stick together.

Jo and Tigerlover.
