Sparkle & Shine Advent Calendar/Blog Hop

I'm entering this Advent Calendar in the Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop, you can find my first entry here.

Last year I bought the advent calendar workshop from CTMH.  Life got in the way and I never got around to making it.  I kept promising myself that I would do it and have it ready for this year with plenty of time left.

Well, I did make an advent calendar, but I didn't use the workshop....I used the new Sparkle & Shine Paper(X7176B) and the Magical Days Stamp set(D1552). I used the coordinating colours for my inks, Juniper, Ruby and Slate to stamp my images, and with lots of fussy cutting and foam tape assembled my boxes.

You can see from the above photo that I spent many hours making the boxes, and assembling them. Here you will see some close ups of some boxes.

So finally here is my finished Advent Calendar, I hope you enjoyed seeing the process I went through in the making of my Family Advent Calendar.
