I hope I posted this right.
INSPIRED!! You Ladies inspired me so much that I couldn't help but do this! My matchbox has een inspired by this crafting community and my Grandparents. Last month, right on Christmas day my Grandfather died. He was a very big part of my life, as my Gran is still. I spent a lot of my life with them, I won't get into all that now after all this is supposed to be a celebration of their life together. Anyway, here is my matchbox. The surprise element in this is the illusion that it is a framed picture. The picture of them was taken at my wedding.
But it's a matchbox full of love! The ribbon broach is a broken piece of Gran's jewelry. The poppy represents Papa's service in the army.
Under the poppy is loving goodness. A ring that Papa bought for Gran when they were on a trip back home to England (they took me with them), a heart charm to represent love, two pictures of all Papa's meaddles, a footprints pin to remind us of the Footprints poem and that Papa is above watching over us, and a crystal to help heal a broken heart.
thank you ladies for your inspiration and for taking a peek a my matchbox craft.
