Christmas Advent Calendar

I bought this advent calendar kit from Swirlydoos over a year ago and only recently put it together and I have to say wow time consuming! The video tutorials were awesome Krissy you did a fantastic job.
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Just Believe collection.
The little jewels are from Prima The black numbers are from Tim Holtz and the white ones are from Thickers. The Thickers were initially brown so I sanded them down then painted them with Gesso. After the Gesso dried I sprayed them with Champagne Glimmer Mist and added glitter and left them to dry then sprayed them with hairspray to set.
The chipboard is from Dusty Attic (Christmas trees, flourish and the mini holly) and the reindeer from Tim Holtz. I love the technique used to add snow to the trees! I also learned what Ferro is and how awesome it is!
Here is a good shot of what the Ferro looks like when it's dried awesome isn't it? The flowers and berries are from Petaloo.
The centerpiece! This shall sit on my fireplace mantle! Unless of course it gets "removed" by one of my daughters lol! Well it's the beginning of the festive season and there is so much to do! It is especially hard seeing as I have a new project on my hands
And all I want to do is hold him:) Isn't he gorgeous?
All the best! :)
