Christmas Countdown- Advent Calender

In keeping with a Holiday Tradition I made a fun advent calender for Christmas.
 I purchased the tray's at a local thrift store. Most of my pieces for the days were using collage sheets, ribbons  and goodies from Alpha Stamps
A close up of the bottom tray. Some of Tim's #'s

All of the pieces were attached to magnets and can be stored along the side or
on the back till the big day arrives!

Another close up of some of the days.

I'm counting the days how about you?
