Today is the Friends of Waltzingmouse November Blog Waltz. You should make sure to check out all of the holiday cards and projects guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit. Here's a link.
I have been wanting to make a shadowbox ever since I saw one made by Mona Pendleton back in September and again in November. Here is a link to the projects that inspired me, here and here.
I love the toothless grin on Andy's face as he posed with his new bike helmet, pretending that he will love to wear a helmet even though that was back in the day when the only kids who wore helmets were the ones with crazy moms like me. In the box next to him I used an embossed ornament from WM stamps 2010 Vintage Ornaments and a couple of pinecones, one I collected from outside our little cabin in Montana.
Third, my baby, Carly who is now 20.
Candy Jar Christmas.
Last up, a picture of the entire group.Nordic Winter and embossed in white with flocked cuffs. My favorite set from Waltzingmouse...so far!
Here are a few pictures of the other boxes:Around Christmastime for the vintage Santa, Seasonal Remedies for the "Joy" tag and A Cottage Christmas for the cute little snowman popped up on the snowy hills with a PTI diecut deer feeding at it's feet.
This shadowbox is already hanging in our family room, I couldn't wait until closer to Christmas, but I have to say it was so much fun to put together, trying to come up with the perfect embellishment for each box to go along with the memory-filled photos. Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me. Now, here's that link to the Blog Waltz again. I know you won't be disappointed.
