The box is made from a stationary cardboard box. I removed the outside embellishments and added the old writing. Then I took the picture I call Sara and placed her in the center. Then I placed napkin on the box and the words and used glue to adher them. The flower I placed on the top is from my Lavender garden. The ring at the bottom is from my Great-Aunt Addy. I have opened the box so that you can see at the top framed by tiny buttons a baby picture of Sara. And her Sisters are to the left. In the box is a picture of her Grandmother, letters and her first ABC book as she was learning her alphabet. Lavender from my garden. A locket with her Mother and father, she lost the chain. A river rock she found down on the Snake River. Keys to the doors in her Grandmothers house. Her buttons from favorite dresses. The yellow Marble she won from her cousin Carolyn in the picture down front. These are Sara's treasures.
This is my first time to join in on a contest....the picture of the girl in the oval is what we had to work with, and the word was "Remembrance" So I made a box for keepsakes. It was really fun. What do you think, do I have a chance? So that you see all the entrees when completed, go to my friends list. You will find Gail-Mind Wide Open. I think that you can vote tomorrow...this is all very new to me, I am not sure how this all works. Thanks again for coming by.
