The East Wind Challenge #66 Thanks for the Memories

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The East Wind. This fortnight our challenge is called Thanks for the Memories in honour of Alzheimers Awareness month and we would like you to create any project celebrating a favourite memory.

I used this month's sweet freebie image which you can get by signing up to the newsletter on The East Wind's blog. One of my favourite memories was decorating my first Christmas tree of my own when I moved out of my parents' house. I could finally decorate it how I wanted rather than having to do in my mum's way using her decorations, which were never to my taste. My tree is always decorated in pink, white and silver now!

I did go for more traditional colours for this card and added a little Christmas tree on the side so it kind of looks like Aurora is going off to decorate her tree!
