12 days of Christmas gift box

Hi there - well I'm getting later - but at least I'm getting more organised on the Christmas front! Took the girls to see the new Tinkerbell film today - oh it was lovely - so pretty!!!!!A fabulous winter film!

Today I've got a new tradition that we're going to start this year to show you - I won this box about this time last year and finally I've got around to decorating it and filling the internal boxes with goodies - we'll start on Christmas day in the afternoon once everyone thinks gifts have all finished - and each of the twelve days of Christmas my girls will take it in turns to open a box and see whats inside. The opener will be the chooser if the things inside are different. I've just put a combination of things in there - nail polish and jewellery - hairbands and chocolate - once its the 6th January I'll put it away ready to fill for next year! Should keep the magic going for a bit longer I hope!

I'd like to enter my box of goodies into the following challenges:

Stampi ftwstampinfortheweekend: Anything goes
