I can't wait for the day I get to take Lily to Disney. I am already planning the matching shirts and crafty Minney mouse ears we will wear every day. I have a lot of friends who are planning Disney trips for their kids and they mentioned that countdown calendars were the key to keeping their kids sane while they wait for vacation. My friend and Disney expert Kimberly from Savvy Mama Lifestyle also created a simple chain link countdown on Life with Lynn Lilly a few months ago and that inspired to create something that would be fun for the whole family. To make it even easier my favorite source for buttons and embellishment, Buttons Galore & More has the perfect themed buttons for a magical vacation.
Watch the video for the full tutorial. Below the video, you will find a link to download the free templates and where you can get all the buttons and embellishments on sale!
