Count down to calendars.

While at CHA this summer I fell in love with the advent calendar from KaiserCraft. As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be the HOT product of the season. One of the advantages of working in the industry is that I sometimes have access to the products before they are available for sale. Mick from KaiserCraft sent me two samples to play with and this is the first of them. I used their new Wish Upon papers to decorate it with a little Prima pearls and Rangers Pearl Paint Dabber to colour my numbers. Now this is a little girlie and not my usual colour palette but I like to push myself occasional to try something new. Now to find just the right photo for this project, that may be the ultimate challenge! LOL
This calendar is currently on display at The Workshop in Stouffvile who will be doing this as a workshop come November. Originally I had all the small boxes randomly placed but a young visitor to the store just had to line them up in order. Too funny. I should have my Halloween one up soon so come back and have a look. I will also have some tips for you for assembling.
