Altered Chocolate

 I deserve a whole load of chocolate after this I can tell you. Twice I finished it and then stripped it back down to the backing paper......mostly due to my drool getting over the papers lol.  It does look something like I'd intended it now.

It is an old clipboard, as you'll see from the before pic below, and I've wanted to alter it for quite a while now. I made my backing papers from beautiful pictures of slabs of chocolate from a very posh shop. The background is Choc Orange, and the clock face Dark/milk/white choc. Then there's that lovely big, grown up choc button.  Yummmiee!!!  Admit it, you're drooling too, right lol. My Clock hands and sentiment backer are good old Cadbury's. My doilies have quite obviously had drinking choc spilt on them lol. A few peel offs to decorate....and numbers from an alphabet sheet...I've never used any of my peel off numbers before. I'm getting through this unused stuff ok lol.

My Receipe :-
Papers .... home made (pix from Hotel Chocolate)
Peel off ... Image-n-ation
Glitter ... Stash. 
Doilies ....Lakeland
