Having fun...

Since it's my birthday today I thought I would do something fun. No let me re-word that. That sounds like scrapping isn't fun. Which it is.
So ---> I decided to do something different - that sounds better LOL!

I was really inspired by this advent calendar that Jen Hall did a little while back. I didn't think too much more about it since, being in a different country, I thought I could never get a similar calendar. But then I ran into one about 2 weeks ago. Today was the day to have a play with it. Using "Noel" papers, stickers, rub-ons etc from "Love Elsie". This was what it looked like before I started:

...and this is how it turned out. (Please note that I take no credit for the design concept as such - I have only scraplifted what Jen did LOL!)

And a quick stamp on the back of it. The surface was really shiny so I thought I would totally blur the image - but it turned out ok.

I have to say that I'm really happy with how the calendar turned out and it's definitely something that we'll use every Christmas.
