First Christmas tree SB page

The first challenge for the Stamp Something Challenges was firsts...how appropriate. Anything firsts goes. First baby, first tooth, first car, first time doing anything...you get the picture =). Anyway I thought why not first Christmas tree? Now this isn't actually my first Christmas tree ever of course, but this was mine and hubby's first Christmas married, so it's the first one that was *really* ours. We had fun decorating it and trying to keep it from falling over, lol (you can read the journaling if click on the picture). The journaling was done in Microsoft word. I just left enough room to stamp the Christmas trees.

-Stamps-Crazy for Christmas, Print Pattern Background, and Short Order Alphabet.
-Ink-River Rock and Old Olive
-Paper-River Rock, Real Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock; Dashing DSP
