Retirement Countdown using My Memories Software

My aunt has worked for the Genealogy Department at the church for about 25 years now.
And she is retiring the last day of February!
She is so excited!
So to help her count down the days, I made her this fun little countdown.
You'll have to use your imagination a little, seeing as it was one of those last minute Christmas presents, and I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the finished product.
I used the My Memories Software, which I am giving away this week!  Go here to get entered...
Go ahead.  Go now.  I'll wait!...
You back?
Back to the countdown.  I just whipped up the design and then printed it out and glued it to a couple of pieces of cardboard.  I wrapped the edges of the cardboard with jute and stuck some magnets to the back.
For the numbers, I used rubber cement to create a notepad that can easily be peeled off.
I backed it with a thin piece of cardboard to make it more sturdy.
That's it!  Easy Peasy.  The longest part was waiting for the glue to dry.

  1. That looks great! I made a wooden retirement countdown for my dad, who gets to retire from being a bricklayer in April. I am so glad you shared at Shine on Fridays!
