Christmas Countdown - Crece T

Hello everyone, only 13 sleeps till the fat man in a red suit arrives so I thought I would help my kids with the countdown by creating my latest Scrapmatts project.

Christmas Countdown Shadow Box

I have used the double window Shadow box from Scrapmatts and used some beautiful chipboard pieces to decorate it.

close ups...
The left window is for the 'countdown'. I created little cards with numbers to peg on for the countdown. 
(I inserted the string under the outer frame by using a stapler. The outer frame then covers the staples so no one can see.) 
I used green ink to colour the chipboard Holly, and then used the red Gelly roll pen to colour the berries.

In the right window I used this to display a Christmas photo of my boys I also coloured the new chipboard tree CB5143 with a darker green ink, coloured the star gold and the base red. I added a red bow and red sticky bling (for baubles) to finish.
I also added the 'naughty or Nice tag from Scrapwords 17 CB1215

I hope you and your families have a wonderful Christmas, and I cant wait to share new and exciting Scrapmatts projects with you in the new year.
