SEM December main challenge

this is over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles:

December's Main Challenge-Joy to the World!

December Challenge #23 : Joy to the World!

Tracey here with December’s Challenge. God wants his children to have joy.The scriptures tell us this over and over. This month’s challenge theme is to scrap where you find joy in this holiday season.

The scrap twist is to include glimmer and/or sparkle on your layout.
Mists, glitter and stickles are some ideas. Make it sparkle for the season!

Psalm 32:11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
sing, all you who are upright in heart!

There are so many ways to experience God’s joy in this holiday season! I confess that I love everything Christmas! I find beauty in the carols, magic in the lights and peace in the falling snow. Every year my kids and I make cocoa and put on our jammies to drive around and admire the houses all lit up so beautifully! I am so thankful to my God for the blessings of family, friends and children. The highlight of my Christmas is the Christmas Eve service at my church. It’s a time to reflect on the birth of my savior and refocus on the reason for the season.

So what brings you joy? Is it special traditions? Decorating the tree? Baking cookies with the kids? Time spent with family and friends? We can’t wait to see!
Being the month of blessings and generosity..this month we have 2 benevolant sponsors! So, there will be a prize for this Main challenge and a different prize for the upcoming Sketch challenge !

twinkle! sparkle! glitter! Such a pretty tree and a great idea to take pics of favorite ornaments - I'm 'borrowing' it when we decorate our tree!
