The Festival of Trees

Another awesome year of tree decorating has come and gone.  This one was rather special because my second level downline  (Penny Smiley's downline) Renee Pontious, and her husband Ned, were the chairs for the event this year.  It was huge and festive as always benefiting St. Alphonsis hospital.
 This tree was decorated by The Idaho Statesman our local newspaper.  Most of the ornaments were made from paper - imagine that!

Really pretty newspaper print papers. So much work!!!

This beauty was all about Broadway plays.

I can't remember who sponsored this tree, it was kind of a country, vintagy feel to it.  Honestly,I had no idea you could put that much stuff in a tree! 

Picture frames with items hanging from the picture frames - it was gorgeous!!

A very cool and well done Book Tree.
Besides the trees they had tons of wreaths and other decorated items for bid.  I loved this one!  You can take the girl out of the hospital, but you can't take the hospital out of the girl, right?!  Loved it!!
Great job Renee - no wonder you've been so busy!  Now, back to stamping!
