Rock Around the Christmas Tree

I had such fun making this one.  I actually giggled a couple times thinking about Christmases past. 
Sweet memories of the Night Before Christmas.

I remember my Grandmother having a red wreath made of cellophane on her door.  Anyone else  remember those? EVERYONE had the lighted candles in their windows and BIG bulb outdoor lights. Cheesy music (we do currently have Grandma got run over by a reindeer) and cardboard decorations were the norms.  AND miraculously we waited until mid- December to start decorating, not before Halloween! I had this record in its original paper jacket given to me by Lyneen.   I found it again as I pulled out the Holiday items.  I almost didn't want to do anything to it, but that is silly.

If you are going to be hanging a lot of goodies from your ornament you might go for a larger size eye screw.  I honestly cannot take credit for this idea of using the mirror medallions.  I did see this somewhere before, but it was many moons ago. I thought I would bring this little trick back for you today. The mirror medallions also come in other smaller sizes. I thought why not go big!! 
I knew that I was going to be incorporating a beautiful brass cherry blossom charm from Emerald Creek so I utilized some of the cherry blossom collage images fr…
