This is my good friend, neighbor, and the daughter I never had, Michelle. I can't tell you how much she helped me during the holidays!! Through out the year too, but during the holidays she came over and helped me wrap presents, clean up and prepare the house for my Christmas party and is just always there when I need a helping hand. She even sent her boyfriend down to blow the leaves off my patio, driveway and sidewalks. She's definitely my little elf!! Not to mention she's a goofball and a ham!! I was taking this picture of company in the kitchen when she stuck her head right in front of the camera. LOL!!
I got the idea of punching the side of the tree from Jeannie aka Dollscrap. She made some beautiful trees layering punched triangles. That sparked this idea for me. So thank you Jeannie.
