Friday with Moxxie Christmas Countdown

Happy Friday!

So are you ready for the weekend?  I know I am!!!!  I love this weekend because my town has its holiday festival and we take the boys every year to see Santa.  It is a lot of fun- shopping, eating, horse drawn carriage rides, crafts- I love it all! 

Speaking of Christmas- it really is just around the corner and this year I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas Countdown using the awesome Party at the Poll collection from Moxxie.  I started with a $1 frame from Mihcael's and I painted it black.  I then made 13 4x6 chipboard pieces and covered them with the pattern paper.  I decorated them and placed a countdown number on them.  I then placed two holes and put a jump ring through the frame and attached the pages.  I really think my boys are going to love turning the pages for another new day.  It is small enough to place it on my kitchen table for the boys.

Here is a look at some of the pages:






Supplies
paper- moxxie
bling- doodlebug

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
