Cookies or milk challenge

Cookies or milk is today's theme, so of course I went right to Christmas with that thought.  I'm ready for this horrible heat to be gone and I love Christmas, the decorations, music, movies, family time. It's all so fun and don't forget all the yummy treats that come along with the holiday.
These cuts are all from the From my Kitchen cartridge

Here's the fully page.  I'm not 100% satisfied but I can't think of anything else to add.  I played around with a few photo mats and it looked too cluttered.  With all the glitter I was afraid to add more.  If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance.

Is that the cutest gingerbread man?  He has glittered gum drop buttons and a glittered smile and eyes.  I love glitter glue and that red paper.  Whenever Joann's has paper 5 for a dollar I buy more glitter paper. 
My original idea was to make this as a card but I couldn't get the tray to cut right or fold right when I welded images together. So I abandoned that idea and I think that's why I'm not thrilled with the outcome here, I still have my original idea in my head.

Marji, I don't think it needs anything added. It makes for an adorable layout as is. Great choice with the glittery and textured papers!
