A treasured gift...

This is one of my favourite projects to date. I love the concept of the exploding box and really enjoyed using different punch art, brads and buttons to decorate and embellish my box. I used paper cutoffs to decorate the pages and of course rounded all my edges with that creamy brown chalk eye!!
I found a series of inspirational poems on the Internet and included these in the box along with some photo of Eileen and her family and friends.

This exploding box book was a project I started at Scrapbook Sisters and took home to Ireland to finish. The lady I made it for is a dear friends sister who is very ill and I wanted to make her something to remind her of the family and friends she has to support her. A fellow crafter herself she truly appreciated this little box of treasures.
