I love working on projects that go beyond the pages of a scrapbook. Since I'm the type of scrapbooker who adores embellishments and layers galore, the chance to work on this particular shadow box had me more excited than a kid locked inside Disneyland!
The picture is of my sister Kathy and her husband Marc at their destination wedding in Hawaii -- the photos just came out beautifully and the yellow in her gorgeous bouquet was the focal point of color in the project. Shadow boxes are so versatile and make wonderful gifts to give. We did end up giving this one to Marc's parents and I think they ended up really enjoying it. I personally think that home-made presents make the best ones!
On a side note: I apologize for the shoddy quality of my pictures! As you know, I'm still working w/ my point and shoot and I'm looking forward to the day I'm able to purchase my digital SLR once and for all (should be within the next month). I promised to have better photos to share at that point!
Some of the supplies I used are pattern paper from Colorbok, adhesive pearls from Martha Stewart Crafts, Martha Stewart Die Cut lace tags (I'm addicted to these!), ribbon, and Bazzill Cardstock. It's really hard to tell in the photo, but I did use a background stamp on the MS lace tag. I'm also really loving how the rosettes turned out. They are so simple to make and they have such a huge impact on the page! Adding the pearls to the middle give them the finishing touch.
Thank you for visiting today! I do have several other projects to share over the next few days and look forward to posting those up as well :)
Till then my friends -- here's a big hug from me to you ((HUGS))
