"The Gift" Challenge with Noel Mignon

Created using the Bedford Falls kit
(red thickers are from my stash) 
When I first read this challenge I wasn't sure what I would scrap about. I'm sure I have some great gifts that I received as a child that I could've scrapped about. I wish I had some deeply sentimental or emotional gift to scrap about. But the thing that popped into my head was my KitchenAid mixer my husband got for me for our first Christmas together. I had wanted one for years but hadn't asked for one (hello, those things are expensive!!) I don't know how he thought I'd even want one other than he figured out pretty quick how much I love Christmas and love to bake!! 
But on Christmas morning I was thoroughly shocked to see that mixer. I actually thought there was a different gift inside! hehe And 10 yrs later it is still one of the best gifts I've received. And it still works great!

So here's the thing - Noel is giving away not one but TWO Bedford Falls kits for this challenge!! Tis the season, right?! 

Here's the details of the 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. 

You can head over to this post for more info on the challenge and how to link up your layout & enter for a chance to win one of these great kits!!
