A Little Bit More Christmas...

 
I submitted this small tree in the Country Living Christmas Tree Contest.  If you like it, follow the link and click 'like!'  But, hurry...the competition ends tonight!  The most 'likes' wins a Kindle Fire HD 7! 
I found some Mistletoe in a tree at our church.  At night, my daughter scaled the tree and clipped it off.
 Something doesn't seem right about that, does it?
I put little bunches tied with ribbon all around the house.
 
The girls and I have been cutting triangles forever to make this banner for the tree.  I can't say I have a theme going here, but it feels very L.L. Bean-ish with a pop of spunk.  I glued the paper to twine and wrapped it all around the tree.
I don't scrapbook, but I love all the different papers and patterns that are available.  The triangle with the circles is actually the back of our Christmas card. 
Since it is the season of giving, I thought I would give myself this rustic star.  I found it at a consignment store next to a really large one.  I snagged only this one and drilled a hole in the bottom to put it on top of my tree.

Now, I have a banner on my tree and a star on top.  I'm making progress.
 
Merry, merry Christmas!  I hope your holiday is full of peace and simplicity!

Christie, what a great idea for using the scrapbook paper. I see all the beautiful paper and think surely I could do something with this. You have created "simplicity" at its best! Merry Christmas to you & your family.
