Countdown Calendars

Monday rolls around again but as it's grey and dreary outside I stayed in and made something nice for the kids. You know how you buy the advent calendars from the shops and you end up trying to fish out the nasty tasting chocs that have slipped to the bottom ? Well this year no more!!! I've made these with a Lori Whitlock countdown calendar file. They are by no means perfect but I did learn alot about my Cameo in making them.

I've used First Edition papers as some have glitter and some are embossed. Of course I had to do my normal thing and ink around the edges with distress ink.
 
Hope the kids like them , it's a surprise for them.
