Sweet Shabby Christmas

Finally some time to play in a challenge...
 
 
For today I chose the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room
"Sweet Shabby Christmas"
It's been a long while since I played in this challenge...
and it was so fun, the only hard part was deciding which way I
wanted to go with my creation as I had so many ideas popping around in my head..lol
 
 
You might have to click on the photo to get a better look at all the glitter on the trees
and icicles, my camera doesn't like glitter and sparkle...sigh...
 
I used a Crafty Secrets image from a booklet I received from my friend "Dar"...
it is full of gorgeous vintage images!!
the trees are 5 stacked pieces using the die from Dee's Distinctively called
"Snow Covered Stacker Tree" small which I cut 3 out..... 
the top is edged with icicles from Marianne Dies
I used Perfect Pearls white Opal on the bottom....
do you see the little "ornament" in the little girls hand??
I thought it was so cute to have her "decorating" the tree.....
