This is the first time I've completed a shadowbox and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I used scrapbook paper, faux flowers, various jewerly pieces, buttons, a clipping from a Chicago 1938 newspaper, a vintage photo of PA, a small potion jar with rose hips and jasmine in it, and a cute little bird.

Comments/Critiques welcome! I'd like to do more of these and would love to know how I could improve or add to the next one.

Thank you both! I think I'm obsessed with shadow boxes now ... everything I see I find myself thinking "Ohh, I could use that in one!" I've got two more 'themed' ideas I want to try now.
