Advent - It is time for an Anything Goes challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. 

I have made 2 Advent Calendars for my grandchildren who live in California. It was a very quick and easy project to do.

The boxes are Karen Foster Designs. My DP is MME Winter Wonderland. I inked all the papers with Old Paper distress ink. I used MME coordinating button  embellishment pact for the embellishments.

I have 2 (another on the way) grandchildren in California, so I made 2. I have another one of these boxes, so you can expect that I will get that one done for the new baby soon, so stay tuned!
