My biggest project last month had nothing to do with scrapping. But you can bet I'll be scrapping about it when I get the chance! Each year at the end of November/beginning of December there is a festival to raise money for a local children's hospital. Individuals, families, church groups, companies, etc. donate time and money for this festival and it is one of my favorite things about the Christmas season. The trees are purchased, decorated, and donated and then are auctioned off. All proceeds go straight to the hospital. I've had many family members and friends treated at this hospital and it has a special place in my heart.
One of the girls in my young women class passed away in September and I felt just a few days after her funeral that we should decorate a tree in her honor. She loved the movie Tangled and we decided that a Rapunzel tree would be perfect. The young women (and young men!) in the ward worked on ornaments and we were all able to see the finished project together one night during the festival. I watched as people of all ages and genders walked past the three and I could see that they appreciated it. It was an experience to remember and I am so happy with the way the tree turned out.
