Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello Hello!  I'm super excited to be a returning guest for Taheerah's Advent Calendar Extravaganza!





Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

Today's sponsor is the lovely Reverse Confetti!!!!



I'm super grateful to be a part of the current design team.  Jen del Muro is FABulously talented.  It goes without saying that she is a wonderful example Resilience.

I had so much fun designing my project today:


I knew that I wanted to do something that features traditional colors but still playful!  I started off by using Lime Green and Salsa with the Big Stripes Cover Panel.  The center circle has been cut with Premier Polar White.

I stamped that adorable girl from the Christmas Cheer set and teamed her up with a sentiment from the Naughty or Nice set.


All my coloring is ala copic markers.  Do you see the smidges of clear glitter?  That stuff gets everywhere!  Even when I think it has been all cleaned up, I realize that it hasn't (#keepingthingsreal).

I can't wait to see the other projects that are being shared for today!

It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by [sponsor’s name] so you’ll definitely want to win!
