Time after time :)

Hi everyone!!!

First thing ... I have to give a disclosure to my BFF who sometimes stops by my bloggy ... as what I am sharing today is one of her Christmas gifts I made for her *wink* 


Dani!!!!!!!! NO PEEKING!!!!!! You have been warned!!!!!
Ok... so now onto my project :)

I was already half way done making this when I saw the latest challenge at Frosted Designs which was to make something "Gift" related :)

As mentioned above ... this is a Christmas gift I made for my BFF for Christmas :) I altered a clock for her  :)

My BFF is a HUGE Mickey Mouse fan ... and a few months ago, I was at an antique store ... and someone was selling a little bag of Mickey Mouse watch faces … just the faces … and so I bought them knowing I could incorporate them somehow into a gift for my BFF!! :)

Then I saw that Linda Auclair had an altered clock on the Echo Park blog and I pinned it … and that was inspo for this clock :)

Here is what I started with :)

A clock from Target, the Mickey Mouse watch faces from the antique store and "Say Cheese" collection from Simple Stories :)




And here is what I made for my BFF for Christmas :)






And I don't know if you can tell from the photos or not, but I made sure each "Mickey Mouse hand" on the watch faces were pointed to the "TIME" they represent on the clock :)













Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
