Default Family Tree Idea

What about googling tree coloring pages? If you could find a winter tree (i.e., no leaves--think of the main tree image in Season of Friendship in the current Holiday Mini), you could cut it out and trace it onto the back of a piece of chocolate chip cardstock. Then, cut the CC tree out and layer it on top of lt blue (or whatever color) 12x12 cardstock. Your friend could stamp her little people around the branches and also fill in with stamped or punched (I think this would look neat, giving it more dimension) leaves. I made a couple of family trees like this for my parents and grandparents about 10+ years ago, only then I got a large die cut tree from a scrapbook store. I wrote the family members' names on punched apples (red for direct kin and green for those who married into the family). I matted a rectangle with the family name at the base of the tree and framed it. I still update them by adding more apples as our family grows.

Hope this helps,
Michelle
