Hello!! I am getting back into the groove. So If you are only here for the project jump to just under the picture.
So here is what has been going on. CRAZINESS!! OK sorry had to say it. I have been getting back into crafting tiny steps at a time, but nothing to do with Disney. Hard to believe I do craft other things besides Disney. We are settled for the most part. My poor babies of course move right before there birthdays, so we had simple parties with just family. Mackenzie had her sister, cousin and herself for a Build A Bear party. Mary had a simple dinner to Cheesecake factory and a Mani and pedi day with her sister and her mom. Loved that gift myself! I am trying to find time for crafting after all the kids are asleep. I am still looking for a scrapbook store here is South Florida. If anyone knows of any please say, missing spending hours scanning through paper.
OK on to today's project. My family is catholic, and both my children are making their First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. My daughters made First Reconciliation this past Saturday. The church had the parents make a "love box" for each child. It is just a simple box filled with letters from family and friends. Once the kids were finished with Father and said penance, they were able to open the box and read the letters. My dear friend who is older than me still has her box and letters. So I hope my children will value theirs too.
So this is Mackenzie's love box
All I did was cover a child's shoe box with paper and craft away.
The actual box is covered in
Chocolate Chip paper from Stampin Up
The Sunflower paper is Spring Yellow from Magenta- a find at my then local scrapbook store
are all from Prima flowers that I just layered together.
