Advent calendar

We've started getting into Christmas mode here the last few days, Seamus has been making paper decorations and I made this using a kaiser OTP kit, rubons and papers and my fabulous silhouette, man I love that thing. The gorgeous Christmas tree, gifts etc are stuck on transparency and mounted on a few layers of foam dots and the stars are stuck on the back panel. the numbers are from the silhouette cut and print range. I love that present cut out, it's meant to be for a wedding but was so easy to ungroup and remove the part that said to the bride and groom. Love that most of their designs can be altered to suit what you are doing.
We have had our nativity scene up for a few weeks now but still haven't gotten around to taking photos of it yet. Must soon, it's so pretty.
I off now to go and cool dinner before Glee starts, they have just moved it to Sunday nights. I really didn't want to like it but alas I was sucked in after 1 episode. A good thing that has come from Glee is that it has broadened the range of music the kids listened to, their computer is pumping out Bon Jovi as I type and I never thought I would see the day when they were searching youtube for Neil Diamond,lol.
Cheers,
Sue.
