The stars are shining bright::

Day 5 is about counting down the days till the 25th. I love crossing the days off my regular calendar, but everyone I see now has advent calendars. I really never had one that I can remember, maybe one when I really little. Ali had a great idea (i think she got it from Martha Stewart) of having advent boxes, not only with gifts or candy inside, but a special outing or family get-together.

So here is my page for the 5th. I had a hard time getting started with this one, but once I got going it was a breeze. Then I forgot journaling!! ::whoops:: So, I had all these stars, the LO is about advent I just made 3 of the stars little window boxes and put my journaling underneath. Easy solution and it looks fantastic. I ♥ it!

Here it is open::
hope your Wednesday is merry and bright! ♥
