Mom and Dad's Christmas Gift

Hi! I'm already busy working on my next show. Had to transition from Christmas to Valentine's and Easter! Yes, Valentine's and Easter already! But, first I wanted to share the Christmas gift I made for my mom and dad. The tree is from Kaisercraft. It is really awesome and easy to work with. All the pieces come apart so painting and papering is a snap! I used some Collage Press paper and painted the trunk and limbs velvet brown and sprayed it with Walnut Gold Tattered Angels mist. Instead of the wooden ovals that came with it, I used Tattered Angels frames for our pictures and finished it off with ribbon, vintage buttons, and a banner. I used some of my favorite pictures...that's Lauren on the top at about two years and then Lauren and Paul in Paris. That's my mom and dad's wedding photo to the left, my grandma and me (when I was little), another of Lauren (who's the favorite here, I wonder?), and then a wedding photo of Dennis and me. I'm really happy with how this turned out!
