Here is my project for this challenge:

I decided to alter one of those $1 picture frames into a cute Christmas decor item for my home. 
I adhered my paper by added some glue onto my wooden frame (I used a glue stick) and then laying the front of my frame onto the back side of my patterned paper. 
Then I just used an exacto knife, to trim up the outer edges as well as the inside opening. I took a sanding block and lightly sanded around my frame to get any small bits of paper that I may have missed cutting.  I cut my Christmas Tree out of the Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge at 4". After I adhered all the layers, I popped my tree up with some foam adhesive and I added some TSQ's Royal Jewels for my ornaments. I also added some  TSQ's Royal Jewels to two corners of my frame. You can see all of  The Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Jewels at her store by clicking HERE.
My font for my 2012 came from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge (pre loaded on the E2). I cut my numbers out at 1" each. I added a little red bow onto the "1".
I am so happy with how this turned out! I just need a good family picture from this year to put into it! Keeping my fingers crossed that that happens, I hate getting my picture taken lol!
