A Christmas Gift of Joy * Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker and Spellbinders *

A very happy Monday to you all. Christmas is just a few days away and I hope the spirit of the season is overflowing from your heart.

I spent yesterday with my extended family. What a blessing it is to have a family that provides me with total unconditional love and complete happiness. When we attend a Sparkman family gathering it is nothing but pure happiness and laughter! I am SO very thankful for that. The only thing missing yesterday was my daughter Jessie, who was sick, Doug, my son and his family in New York and Uncle David who was in Florida and we missed each one of them!

I also have a project that I made using Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker, Spellbinders Paper Arts and some Glue Dots.

It is a gift box… can be filled with anything. Mine is filled with hopes and dreams…

Hopes of cures of illnesses that make people suffer, Dreams of peace for everyone, hope that hearts filled with sadness find joy in its place. It is filled with the hope that people learn patience with one another. Tolerance for our differences….it is filled with LOVE for all. I hope you find this box under your tree this year.

For this box I used:

Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker: Happy Holly-Days and Warm Cord Brads

Spellbinder’s Paper Arts: Grand Calibur , Classic Squares LG, Classic Scalloped Squares LG and Classic Lace Border Grand

and to adhere the project together I used Glue Dots.

I thought I would end this post with a fun and wacky photo of my beloved family yesterday……I hope your Christmas is as full of happiness and love as ours was!

A Wacky Sparkman Christmas

Until next time… creative!
