Theme Thursday - Favourite Holiday




There is something in every holiday that I cherish. For instance, I love the emphasis on giving thanks that comes with Thanksgiving and the earthiness and beauty of Fall that surrounds it but there will always be a special place in my heart for Christmas. To me it's the memories of family and friends gathered together, the excitement of preparing for it and the beauty of the season. These are house-shaped round robin pages that I created commemorating the seaons. I used words cut from a piece of scrapbook paper that signify the "little things" that contribute to warm feelings about Chrismas for me. This is my entry for Theme Thursday this week.
