Oh Christmas Tree

Do you ever lay in bed and think about layout designs?  A few weeks ago I saw this layout in my head one night as I was trying to go to sleep.  The next morning I woke up and drew a quick sketch in a notebook that I keep for ideas.  I kept thinking about the layout but I was waiting till I had the perfect pictures to add to the layout.  Last Friday night we took our 4 little guys to get their picture taken with Santa.  We have had the same Santa for the last 3 years and he is just amazing!  I loved the picture that I took of him waving at my boys as they ran to him.  That picture paired with some closeups of the tree and I was all set to create my layout.

I used scraps from my collection and die cut stitched squares to create a tree, complete with a star at the top.  I layered embellishments around the layout till I felt like it was balanced and cohesive.  I had fun creating this layout and it was great to see the image in my head come to life.  I hope you enjoy and it inspires you to capture some special moments this holiday season.

Have a beautiful day!
