12 Days Of Christmas Swap Day 2

Here is Day 2 as I promised. You might have to scroll down to see Day One.  For Day 2 we had to make or buy two items. I decided to make altered picture frames.  The first one I did in black and white. The second is my swap partners color choice of blue and white.

DAY TWO   

I painted the frame which I bought at Walmart black then I covered it with paper in a harlequin pattern from DCWV Halloween stack Midnight Spell. I applied it with Mod podge.  After it was all dry I attached black braid trim to the edge.  The flowers and brads are from Paper Studio.  I used more mod podge to shape the flowers they were very flat.  The bling is from Recollections at Micheal's. The sentiment is a stamp by Emma at My Creative Time called Just Simply Live.

 

Here is the white and blue frame.  I painted it white and then added the snowflakes. The large ones are from Paper Studio and the smaller ones are from Jollee's stickers.  I used a blue glitter pen to draw the lines around the inside and outside edges. The word stickers in a white glitter are from Glitz & Glitter. Even though the snowflakes were from different makers they fit together well.  This will be a fun frame for winter pictures not just for Christmas.


Here they are side by side.


Now for what my awesome swap partner Rhonda sent me.
HUNKA, HUNKA CHOCOLATE!!!!!

Have you ever seen a Reese's this big before? Not me. I bet I can eat the whole thing though.  It may take a few days but hey I' m up for the challenge.

Hope you enjoyed, be back shortly for day three.  Then tomarrow I will open day four and post it.
Bye Bye for now,
Kim
