Michaels Dream Tree Challenge {The Tree Reveal!!}

WOW!! This challenge turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be. After accepting this challenge I searched through several photos of Christmas Trees and even took a peek at the trees from last years Dream Tree Challenge. After several hours I came up with a plan. I'm more of a traditional gal so I wanted a lot of natural elements but I also wanted a pop of glitter. Who doesn't love glitter?
With a plan in mind and a list of items I was hoping to purchase, I headed to the nearest Micheals. However, once I arrived I realized that it was not going to be as easy as I thought. There were so many beautiful ornaments and I changed my mind about the decorations at least a dozen times. I ended up purchasing way more ornaments than I actually used.
Once I was back home, the girls help me set up the tree and then I spent the next week decorating, redecorating, and arranging ornaments. I started out with a lot of 'natural' decorations (pine cones, berries, and twine) but I decided that they made the tree look too country. While I am a country girl I just wasn't in love with the look. In the end I decided to stick with a simple color combination of white, gold, red and bronze. Most of the ornament that I used are covered in glitter. I even found a few cardboard and wooden ornaments that I painted with glitter paints. When I first took off all of the 'natural' ornaments and started adding more glitter ornaments I was worried that it might be too much glitter. However, I couldn't have been more wrong. The tree looks amazing.

Meet Flint!
Isn't he adorable?
Flint is a 4 year old Labrador. We have had him since he was 6 weeks old and he is my daughters best friend. Most days Jocelyn and Flint are inseparable. On any given day you can find the two of them playing dress up, making mud pies, running around the back yard, or lounging on the back patio. Every night before bed you will find Jocelyn sitting on the floor reading a bedtime story to Flint. I love watching the two of them play together. It brings a smile to my face every time.
