Here Comes Santa Claus: Countdown by Christine

Fun colors, cute icons, adorable embellishments; there is so much to love about Here Comes Santa Claus!  Christine joining you today with a project featuring this fabulous Christmas Collection!  I love the concept of documenting a whole bunch of your December pictures into a daily album - however loving the concept and being able to execute it are two different things.  I tried it once and it didn't work out great.  That said - I have tons and tons of Christmas season pictures!  Trying to document all those individual pictures in layouts is also never going to happen.  But today I offer you a different solution: use this countdown style page to capture a lot of your memories!
This page contains 25 squares - perfect for adding 25 pictures to a layout!  Here's a video for you showing exactly how I made that happen!

Planning in advance on this you can be very organized and actually document 25 days of December this year - or you can do like I did and just capture 25 moments!
I stuck mine on this Clipart Board from Doodlebug and my kids have loved looking at it already!  My 4 year old is especially intrigued - wondering where he can find a picture of himself!

I cut my squares open in different directions, some go up, some go down, some open on the right, and some open on the left - I really like how this looks!  

I decorated some of the squares with additional embellishments - but not all of them!  If you want to make it quick and simple you can leave it alone completely.  Embellishing is part of the fun for me - so it's not to be missed!

My pictures were 2" X 2" squares - I'd actually recommend going a little bigger and doing 2 1/4" X 2 1/4" so you have a little extra room.

The Candy Cane Shaped Sprinkles are seriously the cutest thing!  I probably would have used them on every square if they would have fit ;)
