March 15th - A Shadow Box Remembrance

Post  Peggy T on Mon Mar 14, 2011 4:56 pm

Thank you for allowing me to be Guest Designer for today. It is such a honor. I decided to make a shadow box for my children. This is the end result before inserting it in the shadow box.



The top photo is a picture of me and my husband when we got married. I was 16 and he was 19. We always said we grew up with our children because we were children when we got married. The bottom photo was taken the Christmas before he passed in March, 2010.

Instructions for the elements included below.

Background Paper - KayandCo. Smitten Paper Stack
Red Flower
Leaves - Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cartridge
Flourish - cut from White glitter paper with Ashlyn's Alphabet at 5X2.5"
Flower - Cut with Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge from Red Glitter Paper. Cuts are from 3.25" to 1.5" decreasing .25" each cut. I used Key 31 for my flower. Roll petals around round pencil to curve.
Rhinestone for the center.

White Flowers
Leaves - Mother's Day Bouquet
Flourish - Purchased Flourish - Michael's
Flowers - Cut with Mother's Day Bouquet - Key 7
Large - Cut 2.25 to 1.25 - decreasing .25 each cut.
Medium - Cut 1.75 to 1" - decreasing .25 each cut.
Small - Cut 1.5" to 1" - decreasing .25 each cut.
Red jewels for centers

True Love - cut from Tie the Knot - Red Glitter Paper

Peggy, thank you for posting your project, it is just lovely. What a lovely gift for your children to keep and cherish of you both. I'm being very tempted by the Mothers Day cart as it has some lovely flower cuts on there.
