Vacation Countdown Calendar

Hello SVG Attic fans! It's Apryl with the Guest Design Team sharing another fun project!  I call it the Vacation Countdown Calendar.  I took the Christmas Advent Calendar and gave it a makeover!  This is a fun way for the family to do a vacation destination reveal by hiding hints in the calendar each day, or a way for each family member to share what they want to do and see while on the trip.  

The advent calendar design is from the Christmas Advent Calendar kit and instead of using the Christmas tree and packages in the center shadow box portion, I used the SDS Paris Voyage kit.  The suitcase, Eiffel Tower, and cruise ship are in this kit along with "journey", "dream" and "bon voyage". 

This was really fun to put together.  The paper is a combination of Basic Grey's Wander collection and Little Yellow Bicycle's The Escape Collection.  There were some great embellishments from these collections that I incorporated into the calendar:  clouds, airplane, camera, advent drawer numbers.  

Most kids LOVE advents and mine are dying to use this one!  They can't wait for us to plan our next vacation just so they can use this countdown calendar.

If you are looking for something different and fun to do, this is a project for you!  

Bon Voyage!
