DSC#188: Reason for the Season-Christmas in July

What could be better than Christmas in July?

This week's color challenge has filled my head with thoughts of Christmas and cooler temperatures.

DSC#188-Color My World


I really enjoyed this week's challenge. I was able to day dream about Christmas decorations, packages under the tree and family gathered around the dinner table enjoy each other's company.  Since I do not LOVE wrapping gifts, in fact I usually try to see if I can convince someone else to do it...I thought I would try to come up with a gift wrapping idea that I do LOVE. And this was the result...
