Deck the Halls!

I decided to alter a clipboard to use as a countdown to Christmas Day. This was my first altered clipboard and I SO love it. At first I was getting frustrated because it wasn't coming together like I pictured it in my head. The more I worked with it, the more I liked it! It took two days, about 12 hours, to totally complete.

It can be hung on the wall or set on a shelf and because it is a clipboard I'm able to change the photo every year. I flip the tags on the left daily, counting down to Christmas Day. Each tag has a scripture reference so we can read the story of Christ's birth throughout the month.

I thought pink being a new "in" Christmas color was weird at first but I love the Lil' Davis glittery pink chipboard letters that I used here. The bling on the Stampin' Up Christmas tree is so cute. Looks like Christmas lights blinking on the tree!I guess I'm getting an early start on decking the halls for Christmas.Thanks for taking a look and don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think!

How Beautiful! I love the idea of the scripture verses too about the birth of Christ.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!
