Secret Vices

Once upon a time, quite a long time ago, a swap called Secret Vices was proposed and started among the Secret Swappers.  I got the lovely Sian for my swappee, and had to make something of my choice to celebrate her little vices:  Shopping, cake, craft, chocolate, stationery, Dylusions stamps and sprays.

This was quite a long list, so I concentrated on shopping, chocolate and cakes.  Over the course of the time I was planning it, it changed quite a bit, and in the end to get it done I simplified it.  It still gave me some difficulties, but I think it turned out ok and I hope that Sian likes it.

The black purse in the corner is held on with a tiny magnet, because it contains a chocolate lip gloss - I bought it quite a while ago and haven't seen it for sale since so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it's still ok!  The chocolate squares on the top and sides are moulded from Fimo.  The whole thing is actually a photo frame, the back unclips easily so Sian can change it to her own photo if she wants to.  I enclosed a Hello Kitty notebook and a bar of chocolate  just in case she doesn't like it though!
