Countdown to Christmas

Hello my lovelies, back after a fantastic time at this years Crafters Companion Craftaganza, Great to catch up with some old friends and to make lots of new ones.   Some brilliant projects made, including beading, will show them over the week.


Today I am showing an Advent Calendar I made before I went away, there are 24 little drawers, into which I added 2 sweets one for Mum and one for James, but whilst I was away Mum found the sweets so now I will have to fill them up again.


The papers are from K&Co Pad from Charmed cards and  Crafts, the Die Cuts are also from the same Elizabeth Brownd Collection


Lots of little bits from my stash have been used to decorate the panels


This is how I decorated the Top of the box

Sorry this is so quick have to get back to clearing up and starting this weeks card, and preparing for my Colouring Class at Oyster Stamps on Saturday.
