Christmas Tree Project

It's "Black Friday", and I was completely planning on staying home and saving money.  However, I just got the Michael's ad, and it's simply TOO GOOD to resist.  I will be heading over there later, and also hitting Kohl's and the Goodwill.  I hope that for those of you who did brave the crowds, that you found everything you were looking for, and then some.  Because of this Anti-Black Friday choice, I am entering the "Black Friday" Challenge at:
http://freshbreweddesigns.blogspot.com/2011/11/fbc-74.html - Black Friday Theme

I got this cute idea from Authentique Papers Blog, and remembered that I had two chipboard cones that I had picked up on clearance, so I followed their example, and made these.  They will make a wonderful addition at the boutique.
