We are going to follow along the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" song.
Since today is the "First Day"of our challenge event, it is the "Partridge in a Pear Tree" day, according to the song: Our challenge is to use a Tree on your creation.
Here's what I came up with, using two of Bugaboo's images, Christmas Brat Girl, Elf and Tree Bench.

I colored in the merged images in PSE, added some paper glaze to make the ornaments on the tree pop, placed a few tree brads from my stash, and added a ribbon to top it all off. :0) I thought this little elf looked a bit impatient, so I added the sentiment, "Twenty-Five Days and Counting.....". She ust looks like she's ready now, and disappointed that she's being made to wait, don't you think?! (I know I'm ready!! lol!).
Now, we'd love for you to join us, so put your "tree" thinking cap on and head over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to enter! You could WIN some Bugaboo Stamps Images(note: to win, you must use a Bugaboo image on your creation)! 
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
