Counting down the days...

In our house, we use paper chains to countdown the days for special events. We've had one hanging on our front door for the last 37 days to track the number of days left before my little one started Kindergarten.

I made this card for my daughter to send to her Kindergarten teacher over summer vacation. On the inside my daughter wrote, "I'm counting down the days until Kindergarten."
The main panels of patterned paper on the front are by Luxe designs. I found them in the clearance bin at my local scrapbook store and just loved the colors. The mini paper chain and paper pieced dress are from SU's Bali Breeze collection. Oh, and I can't forget about that cute little girl in the middle of everything. She's from SU's "All in the Family" set.

Hope this made you smile. Have a happy day.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see Lauren's new sketch.
