Baby Gift

This is an altered square box I made for my grandson's arrival with a gift inside of a baby carriage in crystal (it was heavy clear glass) with a silver tag with his name and date of birth.  I was unable to engrave the information right on the glass due to its fragility.  The top of the box was in light blue with cream resin corners and the picture of the baby enclosed in a round resin frame with a blue dotted bow.

The sides were covered with white silk lace and the Spellbinders medallions on the sides of the box had tiny embellishments of baby items, adding pearls as an extra touch.  Its a little treasure to keep.

Babies are so precious.....love them so much!
Thanks for the visit.

Happy New Year 2012!

Another year gone, but the memories are cherished forever, we move forward to a beautiful year with grandchildren in our midst and they bring us so much joy, each and every day, not just one happy day, but always.  We are truly blessed.

Today, also marks my mom's passing away overseas, I remember the day we got the message in the early hours of January 1st and it still brings pain to know that I will no longer be calling her on the phone.  But I know she is always with us.

Hope to do more crafting, with so many ideas dancing in my head.  Thank you for dropping by!
