What time is it? - Teachers Gift!

As is a tradition of mine for Georgia's Infant School teachers, I make them each a clock at the end of the school year. This year was no exception...although I almost ran out of was still in it's box at 11pm on the night before her final day at the school....LOL What with making 2 8x8 albums ( 1 each for the teachers in Year 2 ) and making "Thank You" cards for the teacher and was touch and go as to whether it would be done in time....anyway a little after midnight on the Friday it was sorry for the poor lighting in the photo. The papers are actually red/black/teal....they are Scenic Route "Cape Town" papers with a sheet of red bazzill cardstock for the outer circle. I added photos of the Teacher and TA which are framed by Bam Pop Frames. I added plenty of bling and punched swirls with my EK Success "Wave" punch and a 3D Butterfly with my X-Cut Dimension punch....the numbers and wording was done with my gorgeous American Craft Glitter Thickers.......I love them...yum yum.

They both loved it and have already asked the School Caretaker to put a nail/screw in the wall to put it up.....If anyone is interested in having a go the clock was purchased from The Range for £4.99 and had a cafe scene on before I covered it up. It is actually about 14" in diameter so you will need to use more than one piece of patterned paper/card.....which was why I trimmed in cardstock by making curved strips and the centre circle is done by drawing around a dinner plate and cutting out (plate was approx 11.5 inches in diameter). The flowers were also cut from a sheet of the Scenic Route paper.

Thanks for looking...
