Advent Calendar

Today I would like to share an Advent Calendar that I made to enter into our local fair. The category was to make something using scrapbook paper but not a memory page with a Christmas theme. (I won second place at the fair!)

Here are some of my favourite pages....

I used up a lot of scraps of assorted paper lines for my calendar and then decorated each page with a Teresa Collins number from one of the Christmas lines. I then added assorted embellishments, twine, buttons and ribbon. All mounted in an IKEA under a dollar frame. My husband rigged up the little bracket on the top because I didn't like how it was hanging. He cut and bent a hanger to custom fit in the frame....and then it was perfect. I wrapped the hanger with a bright red washi tape.

The countdown is on! It is hard to believe that 7 days have already passed!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Southern Girls Challenge - A bit of what you fancy - I love everything Christmas!
Shopping Our Stash #229 - No Stamping
D - diecuts
I -Ink
