Avent Calander and Southern Girls Challenge

After last yr buying 2 Advent calenders for my girls and chocking on the cost, this yr I made one. Its the HUGE Advent Tree from kasier. With 3 kids it took me 4 days of painting, glueing, taping, papering and sticking all the fab things on the draws. And I LOVE IT!!!!!

And some close ups

I got the tree and paper from Scrapbooking In Geraldton, charms and resin flower from Handmade Halo and other bits and bobs from Scrap Everything.

If you are wanting to know how I did thing stay turned for Scrap Everything Blog next month, also will be showing the dreaded (for some people) xmas layouts and xmas cards, getting ready for next yr (yes you need to START now for NEXT xmas lol ;)  )

I have entered this for the first time EVER into the Southern Girls Challenge. This fortnight its all about Christmas. So go HERE to find out more details and enter.

Thanks for looking
