Oh Christmas Tree ...

A couple of weeks ago it it occurred to me that - while I have made numerous scrapbook pages for other friends - I haven't actually done any for myself since I was in college!  Yes, college!  Since this year is a 'year of first's' with my husband I thought this would be a great time to start capturing some memories and committing them to paper! 

For my Sheetload 'Beyond the Card' submission, I used Alicia's sketch to create an "Oh Christmas Tree" page.  This was the first Christmas tree that Hicham ever decorated and Mom came over to help so I thought this would be perfect to create our first scrapbook page memory.

A full list of products used on this project is listed in the December '09 Sheetload. I just love the felt embellishments! They are new from Close to My Heart (CTMH) and add a vintage element to the page.

As I mentioned in my post on the 1st of December, this is the final month for new issues of SheetLoad of Cards. Please join us at the SheetLoad blog today for a little 'walk down memory lane'.

BEAUTIFUL layout, Melissa. One of my favorites from this issue. Thanks so much for everything you have done for SheetLoad over the years... both as a designer and sponsor.
