Day 9 consisted of baking 14 dozen cookies for a cookie swap I attended on the 10th. I tried a new cookie recipe that Becky Higgins shared on her blog. Apparently they were really good (at least they smelled good). I am not a chocolate mint kind of girl so I wasn't even tempted to try one. The large snowflakes on the left are actually the gift tags that were on the presents Santa left under the tree.
Admist a very busy day we went tree hunting. I love how this page came out. The fabric tag is a retired CTMH product that I have been hoarding because I just love them and didn't want to run out (I have issues...I know). I finally figured out how to use my sewing machine and stitched it on.

Decorating the tree. I always have a hard time capturing this process. I don't know if it is the set up of my room or the fact that I am shooting into the window. I do love the picture I was able to get of the tree all decorated though. I used one of Ali Edwards December Daily Layered Overlays available at Designer Digitals to create the collage of some of our ornaments. I have never used Photoshop before because it frightens me, but after a few hours of youtube tutorials...I can work a layered template like a champ!
