True Gifts of the Holiday

When you take away all the commercialism of Christmas, and the ham, and the cookies, what you can really concentrate on are the true gifts that we all share at Christmas. That's the feeling I wanted to relate on this gift box for this week's challenge at Polka Doodles.  I partnered it with the sketch over at Sassy 'Lil Sketches and the "What makes you happy" challenge at Simon Says!  Sharing the feeling of Christams is what really makes me happy!




I plan to make a mini-album of all the members of my family for my parents, who are in their later years. I hope it holds memories they can enjoy often over the next years.

Paper used was Glitzmas, from SEI.  Red layer was cut from SEI glitter cardstock with the Nestabilities "Dalia" folder.
