Christmas Tree Farm

March 31, 2010 Sarah Coggins

Last Thanksgiving, Dylan & I accompanied my mother & stepfather to a farm to help pick out their Christmas tree. It was a beautiful, cold day and you could see snow falling on the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. Perfect day for cutting down a Christmas tree.

This is the page I created for Dylan’s album about our adventure and the inspiration for my Friday Freebie digital template in late February:

I used an edge scraper to rough up the edges of the patterned paper strips and give a little texture to the page:

Supplies: Bazzill cardstock; Basic Grey patterned paper; Making Memories edge scraper; Signo Uniball white pen; business card.
