Christmas Gifts Made With Love

Blogland is my main resource for inspiration and ideas. Magazines are another. The December/January issue of Country Living magazine featured one gift project idea that I liked immediately. The project was created by contributing editor Cathe Holden. She had collected vintage images from our good friend Karen at The Graphic Fairy. Then Cathe assembled the graphics into 4 game boards. She then created PDF files to print out. She gives great directions to make this awesome game in the article.

Concentration, a memory game
Cathe's game pieces were displayed in an antique toy truck. I loved that idea but I couldn't find a proper toy. I did find a French cookie tin at a flee market that was the perfect size.  I really like how it looks. I made a digital collage of sorts  with the name of the game, credits, and a message to my gift recipient and added it to the inside lid. I hope she likes it.
