Family Is A Blessing

Hi everyone!

This time, I'm back with a special project which I have created as a gift for my husband, to always remind him, while at work, that he is loved by his family.

For it, I have recycled a shoe box. It's all black and white, as it makes it more elegant and is also manly. It represents a house with its residents... that is our family. :) We have three small children together, so there's never time to get bored... but that's another story.

The entire house is covered with designer papers from Papermania, their beautiful Mono Paper Pack from their "Capsule" collection. The flowers on the table are from Opitec. The ribbon to which the photos are attached is from Heyda, and the bow at its top is from Casa Retro.

The saying on the wall is a sentiment that might come from I Brake for Stamps, although I cannot remember well anymore... It says: "Having somewhere to go is HOME, having someone to love is FAMILY, having both is a BLESSING". Beautiful, isn't it?


The challenges I am entering this project:

Delightful Challenges - Valentine's Anything but a Card
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Favourite Things (easy to guess which are those... :))
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Recycle (shoe box)
Allsorts Challenge - One or More Hearts (punched)
Moving Along with the Times - Blooming Marvelous (on the table)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Show Who You Really Are
