Curtain Call ~ Counting Down 'til Christmas!!!

Now that Ethan is at an age where he is starting to REALLY enjoy Christmas and fun activities that happen this time of year I decided I would make an advent calendar that we will use for our kiddos each year to come! This was a pretty big project but I am so happy with how it turned out and I wanted to share it all with you. 

It just so happens that it fits in perfectly with the challenge happening over at Curtain Call this week as they are counting down 'til Christmas! I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge over at Inkspirational.
