Count Down to Disney World - I have sad and happy news all at once! Today starts the last challenge for Craft Your Days Away. I have really enjoyed my time at Craft Your Days Away. I started playing in their challenges when they first formed and was elated when I made the team. They are an amazingly talented and sweet group. Joanne kept us organized and there was so much support from everyone on the team. Thank you Joanne for everything!
The happy news is that the last challenge is Anything Goes!
Now onto my project. I am taking my 4 grandson's to Disney World in October. In October they will be 7, 3, 3, and 11 1/2 months. To help them with their anticipation, I have made count down calendars for them.
Simular to an advent calendar, they have a little package that they will open each day for 2 weeks. The gifts all have something to do with Disney. One of the packages has Mickey Mouse flipflops, one has a Mickey helicoper that the blades are a little fans to cool them while we are waiting in line. Other packages have Cars fruit drops or something simular. It was hard to find something that the 7 year old and the 1 year old would both like, but I am very happy with what I came up with.
My DP is Creative Imaginations, Magic. The black is actually matting material left overs from a framing shop. It is great for this as they really sturdy.
I cut the Mickeys using my Cricut and the Mickey and Friend cartridge. The boys names are stickers. The 2 boys that live near me put their own stickers on. I did it for the 2 that live far away.
The chains are made embossed cardstock, with the count down days written with a black Sharpie.
Each day the boys will tear off a link and then dig through the package box and find the coordinating number on the package. They will then have a little gift and know how many days until we leave.
I made a hanger using a soda can tab and gold string.
I am as excited about going as the boys. Maybe I should have made one for me too. LOL
