This year our kids really got into decorating our tree, which resulted in a far-from-perfect tree, but I think it turned out beautifully. Sure, all our little snowmen are hanging on one branch. Sure, a pile of ornaments are facing into the tree instead of out. And despite the fact that one string of lights stopped working just hours after we finished, I really did love our tree.
This layout is the one my club made last Friday. I love the way it turned out.
The tree is made of 1" strips of paper that were cut on diagonals in different lengths. I purposely put them in the wrong order and a little on edge because of my imperfect theme. Even my journaling is a little imperfect, although not on purpose! We used the Mistletoe paper pack, some sparkles, Glitz Glitter Gel, the October Stamp-of-the-Month (Sharing the Magic), and lots of ink distressing in Cocoa.
The title circle was cut and embossed using my new Nestabilities, and then popped with 3-D Foam Tape.
The little white spots on the above photo shows the Glitz we added for more bling! Don't forget to do a layout about your tree, no matter how perfect.
