Advent Calendar!

Merry Christmas! 
Today is the first day of our very first family Advent celebration, and I kicked it off with this Advent countdown calendar box!  (Check out the Christmas them challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!)

 I covered this Karen Foster Peek-A-Box with a Christmas paper collection by Making Memories, Sizzix Big Shot and sizzlits dies, American Crafts thickers, Close To My Heart distressing ink, various buttons, Glue Dots, gingham ribbon, bling and punches!

 Details!  The kits included numeral stickers, so I accented with black distress ink.
 I popped out the red in the paper with glittered hearts, to symbolize the love of God for us.

I chose "joy" for my cover to emphasize the Bible verse in Luke 2:10-11,
 "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

I hope you'll enter the Christmas theme challenge at
