2015: Christmas Tree
Christmas must always include a Christmas Tree. For Christmas 2015 my aunt bought a live tree and the boys helped to decorate it. While they were helping I was taking some pictures, and I accidentally took a picture of my leg – but it turned out pretty “artistic” and I wanted to build a page around it. So – this spread includes the picture that I was trying to take as well as my fun artistic one. It also includes a Christmas card to our exchange student, Henry, that was in the shape of a Christmas tree.
I cut the two Christmas trees using my Cricut Machine, and they are actually both made from the same cuts, I just used the inverse of the cut for the second tree. I used the remainder of the cuts from the tree to create the torn edge borders that are on the two pages to bring the color scheme together. I also placed the full tree off center on the spread so that it overlaps on to the left hand page (If you look closely you can see the cut between the two pages.)
