Altered Clock - My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit

At last!  My last project using the 'My Creative Scrapbook' 
Limited Edition Kit for November 2012.  I love the challenge 
of using up every last tidbit from a kit (well as much as I can 
possibly use at least!) so, when I saw this pretty little clock,
 I knew that it was the perfect piece to 'pretty up' for my 
daughter's new apartment!
I fussy-cut some of my off-cut papers, as well as 
using some remaining die-cuts.  Inked up the edges.  
Glued everything on really strong then added the
 angels on top as the 'piece de resistance'.
I cut down the Pink Paislee Artisan Elements Squares into strips
& added some of those along the edge of the clock face & some 
strips along the base.
This was an easy-peasy 30 minute project & yet it took
this little clock from drab to fab & my daughter loves it!
I had two pretty pink Prima flowers left but one was not a 
shape that I liked (it had only 4 petals) so I cut the petals up 
& used them to bulk up my flower on the right-hand side & 
added the stamens from the centre to the base of my flower 
cluster on the left.  I tucked in my last remaining piece of lace & 
added a "Cherished Moments" sentiment cut from my Prima
 packaging - which was appropriate & in-keeping with the 
whole 'Time" theme!
