"The Gift" Challenge

Tis' the season friends! I thought it would be really fun to start this month off, not only with a fun challenge, but also with a fun prize...or two! So let's get started.
First up, the challenge. This is "The Gift" challenge. We want you to scrap about an all time favorite gift you, or a loved one, received and why it was so dear. You can either scrap an actual wrapped gift, something Santa brought, something you gifted yourself. Or you can go the route of a gift of another sort...meaning a lesson learned, learning a skill (maybe music lessons), or your grandmother passing down her love of sewing. You get the idea. It is your layout and your "gift" to scrap as you like.
This is running from today through Dec. 17th. Please be sure to leave your links in the comments section here...and believe me you will want to....because I am not offering one Bedford Falls kit as a prize, but TWO! I thought that since this is the season for giving I would give you a kit for yourself and a kit for you to give to one of your scrappy buddies!! Or, if you have already purchased the kit then you will have 2 gifts to give! :)

The rules are pretty simple 1) Leave a link to your challenge LO featuring your favorite gift. 2) Give a shout out on your blog, or facebook, about the challenge and prize up for grabs! Simple and fun. I will choose one winner from all the entries, and get your prize out to you by the 18th so you have it in time for the holidays!
Here are the design team creations, and boy are they great! Most were done with the Bedford Falls kit.









I hope you enjoy this challenge! I think this is a fun prompt for the holiday season, and I can't wait to see what you all create!
Have fun!!
***Please note I will offer free USA shipping. Any International winner will be responsible for shipping fees.
