Christmas Countdown....

Hello all,  boy it's the beginning of crazy season!  Only 30 more sleeps my kids have informed me.  So with that in mind a made a project to help me remember how many more days, cause apparently I need reminding several times a day! 

So I decided to make a Christmas countdown.  I used  an old boxed frame from the op shop and covered it all in YUMMY Graphic 45 papers and then cut out the words on my silhoutte,  I love subway art I believe it is called.  After I cut it out I double embossed each letter with the totally DELISH WOW  RUBY ROMANCE embossing glitter.  Put them in the sticker maker and then applied to my project.

Here is a close up of the words,  I so wish I knew how to get a better pic of all the sparkle.

I made this tree,  the idea came from pinterest, but I must say that they always make it look so easy!  Not what I had in my mind but it still looks cool.  I have cut the star out and embossed it with WOW TWINKLE embossing glitter.

On the top I have made some cubes again off the Silhouette site,  and this will be used to do our countdown.  I have embossed the edges of the cubes with WOW GLAMOUR GREEN Embossing Glitter, and the numbers with WOW SILVER BELLS embossing glitter.

The kids came home after school today and all had huge smiles.

Last week I made  a couple of projects for memory maze chipboard and they are totally covered in STUNNING WOW embossing powders,  here is a couple of photos .

So have you been creating in preparation for Christmas,  you still have time to join our monthly challenge,  this months challenge is...

For our challenge this month, we'd like you to create projects inspired by the theme: Christmas and Winter! It can be a card, scrapbook,  mini album, an altered item, or anything that you can think of! You must use our products or heat embossing on your project, and please mention what you've used on your project if it's not clear from the photos.

By entering the challenge each month, you'll get a chance to win a set of 6 embossing powders in a handy carry case. The winner will be randomly selected from eligible entries.

Remember, all projects must have either heat embossing or use our products to qualify!
You must also be a follower of our blog to enter*.

Add a link to your project below or share them on our Facebook page! 
Please be sure to link to the specific blog post and not just your blog homepage, otherwise we won't find your entry and you won't be entered into the challenge.

 Lastly I would like  to write a quick sorry ,  See this post would normally be up first thing in the morning for you. But I was waiting for the rains to ease off so I could take photos when the phone rang.  Amber-Leigh wanted to come home cause her finger was sore!  Sure was,  she had been bouncing on the bed earlier and landed on it and broke it at the base.  Maybe just maybe the kids might listen when you say "don't bounce on the bed'

Well I'm off to pack my backpack now as we are all off  for a scout trip to a farm.  The kids are very excited.  So until next month HAPPY HAPPY SCRAPPIN,  take care xox Donna
