Some paper scrapping!

I have some paper items to show you today!! I am really proud of these two things. Firstly is an advent calendar I made. When I went to CHA, a lovely lady on the Karen Foster stand gave me one of their box advent calendars as I have always struggled to get one in England. I was under pressure to do something with it and I finally got around to it in time for Christmas!! This is how it looks - can't wait to use it at Christmas :)


And this is the Pompey and Lily mini book I made. I missed a couple of the pages and it's dark now, so too late to take more photos, but you get the idea from these I think. Would love to hear what you think of them and I'll show you the 2010 calendar I've made soon (when the date labels are on it). TTFN.

WOW!! These are fantastic Vicki - you are turning into quite the paper scrapper ;) The mini album is super cute but I especially love that advent calendar - I wasn't expecting something so grand!

I LOVE BOTH, but have to say that I am partial to the mini album! I have 4 Schnauzers, so I am a puppy addict! Fantastic job! Hugs, Deb P

This is absolutely breathtaking. You are so talented! The advent calendar looks very boutique-ey, and also heirloom-ey (I'm must making words up today) so my compliments on it, too.

I really like what you did with the "advent" calendar boxes and your mini book on your fur babies. How cool is that? I'm going to have to make a book up for my 2 furbabies sometime. Thanks for sharing your hybrid creations with us. Hugs! (terri - hawaii)

Oh! I just love tha advent calendar!!!
I'd love to make one too. Although many years ago I cross stitched a Christmas tree, and made some ornaments to decorate it. One a day, etc...
I'll have to look for the box!
