Hi Bloggers - hope you are all well and getting organised for Christmas (which is getting scarily closer!)  Over at  Happy Campers this month the theme is Christmas so for my DT entry I am sharing this project with you.  I made this Advent Calendar for my children.  It is made from a kit that I bought from CleverCut (I actually bought it last year, so not sure if they do it any more - sorry!).  The kit comes flat-packed and includes papers to cover it.  I coloured the top, base and numbered drawer fronts with 'faded jeans' and 'peeled paint' Distress Inks and went over with a snowflake stamp which I embossed in silver.  The snowmen papers and embellishments are from my stash.  I lined each drawer with a cute Christmas picture.  The finished product is very sturdy, so can be used year after year.  The drawers are a nice size too, so I can easily fit three chocolates in each (one each for my two boys and an extra for me!!).

Please be sure to hop on over to the Happy Campers blog for some more DT inspiration.  We'd love to see your Christmas projects too!

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
