Oh Christmas Tree

Another challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking that I managed to get done today. Debbie challenged us to scrap a holiday song and since I was so upset over losing my Christmas tree this year and having to have a Charlie Brown ugly little tree (LOL) I chose to scrap about the tree!!!

Journaling reads:

Even though you are not my tree, you have brought my family joy.


The reason I say this is not my tree is because it isn't. This tree was the most hideous looking tree I had ever seen when we got it home - why did I have to buy an ugly tree??? Well, in our move my beautiful, huge, full tree somehow didn't make it with us and since we've been without work since August I couldn't replace it with a tree similar to the one I had. Now you see, DH has a history of getting pissy and throwing things away when something doesn't go right but he swears he would have never thrown my tree away - so, where the heck is it then????

Anywho, this tree didn't dress up too bad but I did cry and cry because my tree, the tree I adored, did not survive the move.

Thanks for looking!!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

awww Karen, I hear ya.. =( I am glad though ,that you were able to have a Christmas tree this year ,even if it wasn't your big beautiful one.. LOVE this LO!!! it's gorgeous..


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
