Configuration box - Mom

During my nearly three year hiatus from posting on my blog, I was still crafting. So I have decided to post some projects that I finished during that time. This first is a Tim Holtz configuration box, my first attempt at one. I made this one to honor my Mom who passed away in February, 2012. I still miss her every day. I made this about three months after she had passed, and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
 

Here's a close up, sorry it's a little blurry. It shows some of the details that I included in the box. Everything in the box has a reason or memory how it relates to my Mom. I especially love her senior picture!


Here's another picture taken from an angle. My Mom was a seamstress, so there is a strong sewing theme in the box. I remember many outfits I wore as a child, sewn with love by my mother.


Thanks for stopping by!
