story countdown

I love Christmas Countdowns!  This would be a fun way to share your favorite Christmas stories with your neighbors, and bonus: you wouldn’t have to bake anything!  Just find your favorite stories, make copies, bind, and deliver!  You could make this more elaborate with binders, sheet protectors, etc.  You could also add songs, scriptures, recipes – whatever!

I designed this simple cover in photoshop using clip art that I downloaded for free from shabby princess (one of my favorite on-line scrapbooking sites).

If you need some help finding some Christmas stories, I found some HERE.

      I'm looking to purchase a Photoshop software. Is there one you would recommend for doing these graphic applications?

      I LOVE this idea for a neighbor gift. Not only is it great because it's adorable, your neighbors are going to get SO many sweets for the holidays, it would be a relief to their metabolism to get cute stories to read! Plus you never know what they're allergic to or not. :)
