On her blog also was this free printable download to a Birthday countdown. Its a page of number countdowns starting from day 6 and comes in masculine black and white or, for those that want, there is a pink version too. With predominantly male members in my household I had to go for the former, even if I had wanted the pink (& yellow). The link to both versions is here.
I took my number sheet along with lots of coloured papers to my Tuesday craft group and made up a few of the pages. I made them like little scrapbooking pages with a similar theme and layout on each:
This was number 3:

These are some of the other numbers:

The frame was a £1.50 bargain charity shop find.
I made sure I steered clear of any pink, I'd be sure to get complaints from my boys if I hadn't!
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
