While I was at the Scrapbooking Weekend I did a couple shadow boxes. I was very pleased with how they came out. The one with the fish is pictures of my nephew and his son. I made a rectangle with a strip of transparent vellum and used it under the fish to make them stand out away from the designer paper and add more depth. My sister, Nina, wanted it so it will be on its way to Maine soon.
The other one is for my other sister, Linda. It has a picture of she and I when we were just little. I had the photo retouched at Severna Park Photo. Believe me when I say they didn't have much to work with. The photo is one that came out of a machine way back in the day. It has scratches and chunks taken out of it. The size of the original photo is 1 1/2 by 2. I think I look a little evil. Especially my eyes. But like I said they didn't have much to work with. So they did a great job considering that.


  1. These are absolutely gorgeous!! LOVE the photos you chose for the fishing one. The "swimming fish" are so fun! The papers you used for the second one are beautiful and perfect for the vintage frame. I think they did a great job restoring the photo- and I don't think your eyes look 'evil'. :)

  2. Fantastic work, as always. Love them both and quite different takes on each. I like that!

  3. Both of these are awesome! I especially love the vintage look of the one with you and your sister! They are just beautiful!
