Lollipop Crafts #58-Anything Goes

If you are looking for Kaboodle Doodles post, please scroll down!

I have been so excited to share this creation with you all, so I am glad the Lollipop Crafts #58-Anything Goes challenge is finally here! I cannot take credit for this idea, it came from Mandy Leahy of 
My Passion for Scrapbooking and you can see her tree HERE.

I have been asked numerous times "Is that paper?"  YES IT IS!!! This is completely made out of CTMH paper using the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I started with a styrofoam cone and created all my flowers and then attached them using pearlilized pins from Joann's. There are 300 flowers total including pink roses in garland and star topper. This took me approximately 15-16 hours to create, but I love the final result and call me crazy but I'm thinking about making another one.

If you would like to pick up this cartridge, contact my CTMH Rep & friend Sue Masoner-contact info HERE!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe Crafts- Anything Christmas w/ pearls (pearl pins in centers of all my flowers)
Hooked on Crafts- die cut or punches
Make it Monday- anything goes
Paper Creations Ink- Christmas
Pollycraft- Christmas Fun
Stamps R Us- Bling it on (blingy brad in topper)
Unstampabelles-trees+ bonus die/punches
Whoopsi Daisy-anything goes at Christmas
Catered Crop- follow the recipe: die cuts, green, pearls, layers
OSAAT-anything goes
Pile It On- anything with P (pearl pins & pine)
Crafty Ribbons- anything but a card
Inspire Me Fridays-anything goes
C.R.A.F.T..- stars in your eyes
