Christmas Countdown by Yvonne Blair

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the Thirty days of inspiration! 

I love to re-purpose.  What about you?
I found this picture frame thing at a thrift shop. 
It was really beat up and needed some TLC.  
I decided to paint it GOLD when I saw Teresa's new Christmas lines instead of making it into a mini album, I thought hmmm what about an interactive countdown.  
Her Decorative tags worked perfect.  One pack!

I layed all the tags out on my desk and decorated them together. That made it easier for me then doing it one at a time.  I knew I needed numbers for the left side and even more numbers for the right side. I did have to use two of the decorative chipboard packs to have enough numbers. I also used the ephemera pack and some sequins! You have to use those they are just so cute!!!
 These are all the numbers for the right side. 
 And below the numbers for the left side.  I also created a "Countdown" tag to get the family excited.
I am sure they will be fighting over who gets to flip the number, lol.
 Here is how it would look on day December 1.
 And then December 25! 

 I did continue it on so that it will go all the way to the 31.  I figured it would be fun to keep it up till New Year's Eve! 
I hope this inspired you to look around and see what you can re-purpose! 
See you again next time!!!
