Merry 1st Christmas... in May!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Thank you to all those who have served our country!

I am here today to share a layout I completed.  A Christmas layout!  I know, it is May and it is finally nice outside, but I was finally inspired to scrap these photos, and there is no fighting inspiration!  Especially when it is inspiration to scrap a two-pager!

I decided to lay out my photos in the shape of a Christmas tree.  Then I decided to create a tree with paper.  I cut a piece of green patterned paper in half along the diagonal to make the tree.  I made "balls" to hang from the tree with red patterned paper.  I used gold washi tape for the "garland" and I folded it to make the tops of the balls.  For the title, I  used some pre-printed pieces from the "Everyone Loves Christmas" collection by Echo Park. After I had finished adding embellishments, I decided the top needed something more, especially on the right.  I ended up creating lines of platinum Stickles to add some sparkle and interest.  
I was inspired by the 5/20 Tuesday Trigger challenge at My Scraps and More.  The challenge was to have at least 3 of a shape that gets progressively bigger.  I used the circles.
