Bloggers Challenge - Celebrations

This week's challenge is 'celebrations' and with the gathering of family for Christmas, my mind went to family celebrations. The photo is from 1973 and includes my brother, dad and myself.
We were all together yesterday which is cause for celebration and thankfulness.
The background is wallpaper colored using Rub-ons which are availabe at Rock Candy. The 'Q' brad is for my maiden name which was Quillen. This was a fun challenge!
