It's The Final Countdown...

Hi everyone!!

Hope you've all had a fab day and you're getting ready to settle down for a lovely evening. Well, it's now nearly two weeks and this flu and respiratory infection has really taken a shine to doesn't want to go!! Whoever gave me this flu, doesn't know what they unleashed on my schedule!! lol!

The good thing is I did manage to get lots done at the beginning of this month, before the dreaded lurgy struck and that meant that most of my DT commitments were, I actually managed to find time in the first week of November, to work on something a little special that I wanted to do for me and here it is... As always, I really hope you like it!!!

Now, you all know that I LOVE working with Kaisercraft products and I've been wanting to make one of these for a couple of years now but never have. This year though, I was determined and I made a list, went shopping at Merly Impressions for all my goodies and ta~dah...this was the result!!
I constructed the box and then painted it with Kaisercolour Paints. Once it was dry, I used papers from the Turtle Dove collection and then, added various other bits and pieces to complete the box. There are the Woodland Trees and wreath from Tim Holtz, sprayed with Distress Ink and then encrusted in Rock Candy Dry Glitter. A Curio Knob from the Idea-ology range. There are wooden flourishes from Kaisercraft and I even managed to sneak in some of my fave Snowflake Rosettes, made using the Sizzix Alterations Strip die from Lord Tim. If you look really closely, I even added, a little red nose for Rudolph...

The final piece de resistance that I added is my beautiful bejewelled peacock... I just thought it was the perfect finishing touch.

The Advent Box has now been filled with all it's little pressies...(chocolate) and is being put in pride of place for the start of the countdown to that all important day!!

So, that's if from me for today and I can't wait to hear what you think of this creation...*fingers crossed* you love it!! See you all soon and thank you so much for all your continued support and for popping by to look at what I've made...
Bye for Emma xxx
