Countdown to Halloween

Last week I showed you a countdown to Christmas.  This week I'm sharing a countdown to another holiday that children frequently ask how long til:  Halloween.  It's also one of the featured projects at my All Occasions Stampin' Buffet this month:
Colors: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White. Stamps: Festive and Fun.  Big Shot: Square Scallop Duo, Billboard Decorative Strip.  Tools: Crop-a-dile. Accessories: Markers, Chalkboard  Decor Element Sheet, Basic Black Scalloped Dot Ribbon, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon. Other: Chalkboard Marker.
The black scallop square is die cut from our Chalkboard Decor Element Sheets so each day you can erase the number and right a new one on there.  I used a chalkboard marker to add the dots in the scallop and write the number, but you can use regular chalk as well.

The base of these are some On Board Small Book Basics that Stampin' Up sold a few years back.  I've been hoarding a couple of packages of them, but this is the perfect use for them.  They measure 5-1/2"x7" so they are the perfect size to hang, or put on an easel.

And notice the Festive and Fun set again?  I'm getting a lot of use of this cute set.  Love it!

If you want to make one of your own, come September 16 or 17 to my Stampin' Buffet.  They are $6 each but I only have a limited number of those boards so RSVP today!  You can see all the other projects here: All Occasions Stampin' Buffet.  And don't worry too much that this is the only Halloween project this month.  Next month will be all about Halloween so stay tuned.
