In Memory....

Hi Blogging Friends!
I have once again neglected my blog.. life has indeed been very hectic lately! I have a very special project to share with you today...
I altered this wooden box in memory of my father who passed away Sept 12, 2007.
     It has taken me 5 yrs to be able to do this.... My daddy was a very wonderful man who loved God, his wife and two children very much! He is dearly missed! This box will be passed down to my children and grandchildren some day! I know they will cherish it as much as I have!
I purchased this box from my local thrift store for 99 cents!
I painted it with white gesso and then with Folkart champagne gold( my fav), painted on
crackle medium , let dry over night and then went over it with vintage photo crackle paint. Distressed
with black soot and vintage photo distress inks, then stamped a script stamp on top of all that!

You can see the crackle better in this picture!
I loved how it turned out.
The flowers are from I am Roses and they are sprayed with Lindy's stamp gang, chocolate
truffle and cocoa bean copper... The little wooden piece is from a necklace my Mom gave My Dad.

My Dad was in the US Air Force. This is his dog tag. I draped the chain over the I am Roses.
I loved this effect.

Here is a pic of yours truly and my daddy. This is the last
pic taken before he passed...

A pic of him when he was alot younger.

I made this little booklet inspired by Leanne with LuvLee Scrappin.
Next to the booklet is a grease fitting, another rose and some burlap. I crackled the heck out of this box ! lol
Bottom Compartment is a pic of my dad when he was about 2 yrs old. I fussy cut
a butterfly and added anothe copper plumbing part.

Top compartment is a pin nib wrapped in
copper wire and a copper plumbing piece. The whole box is lined with
DCWV Tattered Times paper.
Bottom Compartment has a Prima Tea Thyme wooden ticket held
on with a clip from Tim Holtz.
On the left side is a copper strap and a tiny light bulb also some gears.
Some screws and a spring.

I bought this tiny tool box from Etsy. I loved it so much because it reminds me
of the many days I spent organizing my daddys tools in his garage. We spent alot of time
out there just talking and laughing... the blade is for a drimmel tool.
The bottom compartment features a Prima wooden clock and a memo pin.
More I am Roses, ( I love those!) the one in the back is stamped with
my script stamp.

This is a pic of me and my Dad. I was 8 yrs old in this pic!
I mounted the pic on a Tim Holtz fragment.
The bottom compartment features a pic of my Daddy in his uniform and a
glass vial, some bead chain and some light fixture parts. I also adhered some Tim Holtz
ornate feet on the bottom of the box.
Whew! That was a long post! I hope you have enjoyed it!
Take care my friends! Until next time....

Hi Bloggers!
So my son in law has not been able to retrieve my 5000 plus pics off
of my old laptop! Eeek! I dont even want to think about it!
Needless to say I have purchased a 8 gb flash drive and I am also going to
upload all my pics to Snapfish, I know they will be safe there ha!
Lesson learned!
On to my week... I have had alot of mojo lately so here are a couple of layouts
that I have finished this week!
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment!
I love how this layout turned out! I used my SU banner punch.
{ I love that thing} and I am roses, wooden buttons and MS
butterfly punch and some flat back pearls. I distressed and journaled
on the tag that is behind the picture!

Here is closeup!
I used the Amazing Grace stamp for the scroll that I got from Ebay and I put glossy
accents on the cross embellishment...
I love the colors in this pp that I got from the Target
1.00 bin ha! The flowers are from WOC and I made the
little flags from toothpicks lol!

Well that's all for now!
Have a Blessed Week!
