Oh Christmas Tree :)

Hi everyone!!


Thanks for all the Birthday wishes!!!


I wanted to stop in today and share a canvas I made with the December kit from Paper Made Bakery! :)



I had this idea stuck in my head all weekend long and was finally able to make it today!! :)




The only things on here NOT from the Paper Made Bakery kit is the 'trunk' - which is Maya Road mini rulers, the triangle banner stickers are from Lily Bee and the vintage music paper :) 

The flowers were made with Lily Bee's Christmas Cheer 6x6 paper pad that comes in the Paper Made Bakery kit :)








Here are some photos from my birthday  :)


 Started my day blog hopping (Yep Rose...that is your bloggy there on my screen) :) with a cup of hot cocoa that Brian made :)



Me and Brookie had a little photo shoot in front of the tree before we took her to school :)


After we dropped Brookie off -- we headed to a little town (Camp Verde) outside of Phoenix and went to a Casino there -- between Brian and I -- we won $175.00 :)


Then we headed to a little diner :)

And since Brian loves me :) ... he took me to an antique store --- totally scored on 12 old mason jars for $9.00 :)


Then today Brian and I went to see "Pitch Perfect" -- I just LOVED it :) And because I had a movie coupon ... it only cost us $2.00 to see the movie :) YAY! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
