Christmas Countdown....IT'S ON!!

Oh my....are you in countdown mode???  I am in a panic....and working retail in a boutique shoppe at this time of year only adds to my stress!!!  And here sits my very sad and lonely blog!!  Unloved....caught up in the rush of Christmas madness!!

Well, it's time to spread the love....and nothing better than this Christmas Countdown Calendar I created using Authentique, Want 2 Scrap, and Petaloo!

To make this I used a wooden easel frame, painted it black, then embellished using Authentique die cuts, American Crafts glitter paper, Petaloo flowers, Want 2 Scrap pearls, and some jute string.

The numbers are created from the Authentique die cuts as well, and get a little pizazz from more pearls, and glitter paper:

There are envelopes on the back of the frame to hold all the numbers.  Did not grab a pic of those....they are just little cardstock boxes I made with velcro closures.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  And remember to slow down and enjoy the all the rush you can miss some of the good stuff!!  For me....that starts today!

Paper: Authentique Joyous; AC POW glitter paper
Embellishments: Authentique die cuts, Want 2 Scrap pearls, Petaloo flowers, AC glitter clothespin, jute string
Adhesive: Scor Tape, Art Glitter Glue
