Day 2 Is Complete

Hi Everyone! I haven't really had any crafting time lately, but to our surprise yesterday, we found out we got to take Veteran's Day off! I figured I could use some of the time to craft and of course more time to spend with Peyton! Thong left just a bit ago to go to Jordan High School's football game today with his brother. So it's just Peyton and I hanging out right now :).

I started working on Day 2 last night. It didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but it did turn out nonetheless :). Hopefully I can get some more time today to get a few more numbers done. I want to get the whole thing done before Thanksgiving, if not sooner.

Here are the pics:

It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be on the tree, but I thought it still worked perfect.

I was having a hard time with the colors of the chipboard ornament and the patterned paper that I have. The reds are different shades, but I tried to make it work.

The chipboard is from Amber. One of her really good friends, Kausi, has a husband that has done some work for Making Memories. They have given him free supplies because of it!!! So of course Kausi shared the love with Amber and then Amber shared the love with me! There is the cutest metal pink reindeer that i can't wait to use for one of the days!

I did the same thing for this number that I did for the 1. I put a strip of magnet behind the scallop circle and then die cut the 2 backwards and put it behind the 2.

Here is another picture of the full tree so you can see just what I am working on filling up. I have some mini ornaments and beads and ribbons to decorate it further!! Can't wait to get it all done!

Here are the supplies for this number:

Chipboard - Making Memories
Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye, The Girls Paperie
Cardstock - Very Vanilla Stampin' Up!
Ink - Early Espresso Stampin' Up!
Ribbon - Red Organdy May Arts, Baker's Twine is from my stash, Blue with Brown Polka Dots All My Memories, Blue Grosgrain Stampin' Up!
Magnet Sheet - QuicKutz
Die - QuicKutz
Punches - Large Scallop Circle, Ticket Label, Itty Bitty Circle Stampin' Up!
Stamps - My Minds Eye
Button - Itty Bitty clear Stampin' Up!
Glitter - Red liquid glitter Studio G {a whole big tube of glitter is only $.99!!!! Think Stickles, but a lot more and cheaper!!!} I love this stuff! I used it on the reindeer's nose :)

And there you have day 2. Hopefully I can update you soon with more numbers today!
