Trim the Tree

Hello! I've got a Nuts sketch and SOS challenge for you today using the Moxxie Party at the Pole line. First, the SOS challenge is Circles, easy peasy, so send them in and lets see your layouts/projects! All the info can be found here.

While thinking of this challenge I came upon this Nuts sketch:

Yep, perfect! Look at all those circles. So then I went looking for a photo. I don't print at home (normally) and I didn't have any 5x7's that I wanted to, or could, cut down, so I just grabbed a 4x6 that I wanted to scrap and trimmed up the 6 inch side a little.

This is a photo of my older three posing with the tree their dad always makes sure they have in their room. It's one of the things he loved about his childhood, so he gets one for them to decorate. :)

As you can see I followed the sketch fairly close with a few minor adjustments here and there. I thought it would be fun to make the journaling circle into an ornament and hang it on the layout along with another fun Moxxie die-cut. I did a little hand stitching, inking and added some glossy accents to the ornaments on the tree and berries on the journaling circle.

Check out the other dt examples of this sketch here.
