Now you have the info, I'd like to tell you a little about my favourite!  I looked through my FSS digis and I looked through the shop and I was completely unable to choose my favourite image, there are so many that I love!  So I've picked one of my favourite things, in one of my favourite images - yes - that would be chocolate lol!  The sentiments that come with the image are just perfect aren't they?  Better than Chocolate is a Valentine's Day set, but I think chocolate is for all year round, not just Valentine's Day:).

I've printed it off a few times and decoupaged it, the base layer has been cut with a Nestie, dry embossed with Swiss Dots and then inked with Distress Ink.  The chocolates have some Glossy Accents to give them a shine and there is a touch of Stickles on the rose on top of the box.  I hope you can see all the layers in the detail piccie below. The DP is Prima, I have only added a bow as the image is so beautiful it doesn't need lots of extra embellies.
