Ho! Ho! Ho! Kayleigh

If you follow my blog you will know that I have already made an advent chest for Heather. With me having 2 girls still at home it is only fair that I make one for my youngest. With time ticking by quicker then ever I pulled a ghoster last night to make sure that this was ready for this morning.
Kayleigh requested a purple theme and choose this lovely snowflake papers.
The challenge on the high-hopes blog this week is metal madness. The Oh so cute Santa on the top of the box is from High hope stamps, coloured with copic pens and glittered up a bit. Kayleigh's name is made from craft metal, I used a die to cut the letters and then embossed them to give them a bit of dimension. The snowflake brad in the corner is also metal, it was purple all over but I sanded the top away and then glittered it. You can never have to much bling.
I used acrylic paints to paint the match boxes and crackle the front of the draws.
I am pleased to say that 2hrs sleep this morning she was really excited at the sight of her advent box, thanks for stopping by and taking a look x
