The best gift

Goodness! I just got the kids home from school and we were hit by a snowstorm. 2 kids on scooters, one kid in the stroller fighting the wind and snow and of course, the streetcar was delayed. BRRRR! 

Just a few hours ago, the sun was shining and I was able to take a picture of my latest layout - the best gift ever. 

The sketch was provided by the sketch ladies with the challenge to scrap Christmas photos and use some embossing. 

11 months ago, our sweet little boy was born. He was a real gift. First, we could not get pregnant again, then I miscarried. When I was finally pregnant again, I was in hospital 3 times, almost lost him! Then he was delivered a week early by emergency caesarian. Talking about a rough time. But now, he is the sweetest, happiest and easiest young boy in the world. That's him today, feeding himself with 2 spoons. 

I used almost a whole bottle of gold stickles on this layout. I just could not stop - typical case of gold fever???? LOL!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great Advent season and can enjoy it. 

All the best, 


  1. Was ein wundervolles Geschenk!
    Und so herrlich verscrapt!
    Ganz vielen lieben Dank fürs Teilen und mit machen bei den SketchLadies!

    Und obwohl ich eigentlich kein Gold mag: dein Goldrausch passt 1a zum LO :)
