I can’t say it was hard to put together, just time consuming. I wish I would have had more time to decorate it. And I kind of man-handled it a little too much. That’s why it is sort-of wavy. ^__^ See the lovely tree and holly leaves on the bottom? They are from the new Christmas files from SVGs by Bee. Go check them out. If you don’t see them yet, rest assured Bee is adding them to the site as I type. They are soooo cute and cut like buttah! I have plans for you O’ Christmas tree!
Most all other decor on the sides are from Lettering Delights Christmas Simple Shapes, a Christmas Carol and Ornament Collection. The whole calendar used a Christmas stack by DCWV that I purchased last year and forgot the name of. You know me, forgetful. I just did a Print n Cut on most of them. I love this feature when you don’t want to cut every layer out.
Look at those beautiful wings! You know who made those right? My friend Belinda aka Bee aka SVGs by Bee. With her amazing file, a little embossing and a little Martha Stewart glitter a beautiful creation can be made. I think they really put the icing on the cake. So glad I finally got to use the wings. Look for these little beauties on other upcoming projects too. hehe

On a final, funny note. I forgot to go get candy for the calendar, me being the smart alec I am, put antacids in the first drawer. I called the boys and told them they didn’t check their goodies. When they opened the drawer and saw the Tums they laughed and then ATE IT! Without even batting an eye! I don’t know whether to think that’s the greatest or feel sad. LOL, those boys take everything in stride. Gotta love’em. By the way, I did go out and get them some real goodies for being good sports.
