"Delightful little things" shadowbox

Okay, so I've never done a project quite like this one before, but I must say, I am quite pleased with how it turned out. And guess what...I actually put MY pictures in it, and I'm KEEPING it!!! That's huge for me, since most of what I make I give to other people. I don't even have a scrapbook of my own pictures, but I've made plenty for others. Anyway, here is a shadowbox that I made into a piece of "scrapbook-related home decor." The box itself has an overall size of 11" x 14", and is divided into 12 compartments. It came with glass, but I removed it. Here is a little peek...

The inspiration for my title came from one of the stamps I used on it. The set is from Technique Tuesday, and it is just fantastic. So many stamps are geared towards card-making, but this set is awesome for scrapbooking. And I got SO MUCH use out of it. Here is my inspiration: "Memories are delightful little things"

And here is my finished product, minus pictures. ***I will be teaching this project as a class at my LSS, Pages In Progress, on Saturday, March 13, 2010. Space is very limited (10 seats), so if you're in Tucson or the surrounding areas and want to take this class, please contact the store. Cost is $45, and it includes the shadowbox. Everything will come pre-cut, stamped, punched, embossed, etc. All you need to do is assemble and add your pictures.*** Sorry for the shameless plug... anyway, here is the shadowbox completely decorated, minus pictures. (You can click on the picture to enlarge it and see more detail)

Here are my pictures of my beautiful boys. The actual shadowbox is not shown in the next two pictures.

Thanks for looking! And again, if you are in southern Arizona and would like to take this class, please contact Pages In Progress. Reserve your seat early! :)
