Oh Christmas Tree layout (Echo Park)

 Oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree, of all the trees most lovely. 
We decorated the tree a week or so ago. My daughter was absolutely fascinated. Her eyes lit up with joy when we plugged the lights in. She loved hanging all the ornaments. I snapped a few pictures and the one I decided to scrapbook was my absolute favorite. It was such a lovely moment when she clasped her hands together and stared up at the finished Christmas tree in amazement.
All of the papers, the alphas that spell out "xmas", and the little mistletoes on the twine tree are from Echo Park's Very Merry collection. The white alphas are DIY Thickers. This is the very first layout that I've ever stitched on! I was lucky enough to get a sewing machine for my birthday (in November) and finally set it up last night. The stitch isn't perfect but I love the extra little touch it adds. I plan to add the journaling to the journaling card but for now I seem to have misplaced my journaling pen.
 I was inspired by Ellen Hutson to make the twine Christmas tree after seeing hers on Pinterest. I used Doodlebug twine and couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. So adorable and very easy!

Thanks for taking a peek!
