Christmas Photo Box

Good Morning all,

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I've had a busy one, my second oldest daughter has moved into her own apartment. Sad : (   and  Happy : )
I am happy for her, she has worked very hard to achieve this, especially since her car accident happened in May. But as a mom I am sad as well, going through all those emotions that you feel as a parent. (worried, sad, happy, and nervous) She is not to far but still a little sad, it's so weird when you have a house full of children for years and years and then one day they grow up and start moving out to start their own lives. I still have two girls at home with me. Now being a new grandparents, my husband and I are excited to start that phase of our lives. : D I never understood what people really meant when they said, "There is nothing like being a grandparent", I so do understand that now. It is truly a different kind of love and such a blessing.
Well enough of that blabbering. lol

On to the new Challenge over at Scribble and Scrap Blog and Challenge #24. Yes we have a new challenge that is always "Anything Goes". Come on over to join in the challenge we want to see your Magnificent projects.
For this challenge I used a verity of items I got from the Scribble and Scrap shop - Vintage papers parts 5 (10d) & 6 (#13) and Vintage photo sheets 14, 16 & 20. This is just a little decor I created for Christmas, I saw these pictures of these girls dressed in winter wear and thought they look like Christmas photos. but once I was finished I was thinking how wonderful it would be to create one with my 4 daughters pictures on it, since there are 4 sides. lol
***Special Note - I wanted to give credit to Lizzie at Verity Cards this is where I got the Photo Box idea she does have a tutorial on how to make the box. I asked her if I could use her idea and she said yes. You have to go to her blog, she has some wonderful projects with tutorials, plus her cards are beautiful.
