Child's Play Challenge - Christmas Tree Hunting

     Hi everyone - welcome to this month's Child's Play Challenge 1st of the month reveal.  This month we teamed with Pixels and Paper to offer a super fun challenge with two chances to win.  We had to use both a photo and a recipe (both at the end of this post).  
    I choose to use photos from our Christmas tree hunt in 2012...they fit the recipe well and the awesome sketch I saw at Creative Scrappers. All of the papers are from older Stampin' Up lines, as is the red card stock.  One tip I have for you...color your photo mats with ink.  I love Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler, but a pack is expensive...especially with the cost of shipping.  To make my mats I took white card stock, an ink dauber and used the Cherry Cobbler ink pad.  After a few minutes of drying time, just to be certain, they ere ready to go.  Perfect solution to keep costs lower.  
   As I was creating this I kept thinking it was too busy, but when done, and I took a step back I love it.  It's actually one of my favorite layouts I've made recently...along with my son's pre-school one (which can be found here).
   Thank you all for reading, and I hope you'll play along.  Until next time...Keep Scrapping!
  

Recipe:
Gold - Washi tape and the stars on the tree
