the buildings shade the masquerade

so i got to hang out with judy today, and we eventually ended up at starbucks. even though it was over 80 degrees outside (crazy so-cal weather), i ordered myself a gingerbread latte - yay!

and then while waiting for our orders, we spotted this really cool paper tree decoration. i thought "this is cute, and i can totally make this with my scrap supplies." i was totally inspired, and we ran off to j's and target to pick up a styrofoam cone, pins, sequins, and a star top.

an hour later, we came up with these:

(my tree)

so, so fun. and these wintery heidi grace papers were perfect for this project.

'twas a fun afternoon. gotta love starbucks sometimes :)

have a good one :)
