Photo shadow boxes...

Well you may of gathered ive got the bug for making shadow boxes, to hold mixture 
 photos..Well as christmas is on its way..We always go to london just before christmas xmas pressie drop offs. And of course visiting family..

Well we visit a couple of cousins and like to take them something little. Last year i made them a perpetual calendar each..So thought would make them both a photo shadow box this year..



They will be popped into xmas bag along with there christmas cards..They loved last years make so hopefully they will like these..


Wont bombard or bore you with lots of photos. All can be seen in these two..I have added a few gems, and corner cut outs to lynn,s one.Make it look bit girly..But dont think these need a lot of embellies..


Thank you for looking
