Christmas Advent Block

It's been nearly a year since I blogged on here!
I've been doing all sorts of stuff..... just not blogging.....

But I'm back with my latest 3D altered creation- and advent block.
I've wanted to create one of these for a while, and this year I finally did :-)

Allsorts of goodies on here:

I've used mostly Graphic 45 papers - both Christmas Carol and 12 Days of Christmas, Each box has been inked with Ranger Tea Die Distress ink to age it a bit.
Some of the boxes have Chipboard on from Graphic 45 Christmas Carol. The centre part of the block is stuffed with Prima flowers and a little chapel from Retro Art Cafe, covered in faux Gold leaf, and a little artificial candle inside.
I had such fun creating this, and the kids found and old are enjoying the goodies in the boxes.

I'm entering this into the following challenges :

Papervines Christmas Challenge

Unruly Readers Art Quest : Gingerbread houses and Candy Canes,

Shabby Tea Room: O Christmas Tree

Happy Seasons Greetings to you all.
