For my Mom

The challenge at The Crafty Pad is "For The Mums." This is a box I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. I love to recycle things & this is a throw-away box from work. I copied & printed old & some new, pictures of Mom, our family & me. I printed them on regular copy paper & decoupaged them on the box. After it dried, I took a rag with some dark stain on it & wiped over the whole box. After that dried, I decoupaged it a couple more times. It may not show in these pictures, but it looks antiquey. I printed off a saying that I found on the internet, by that famous guy, Anonymous. :) It says,
" When I look in the mirror
& I see your face.
It reminds me that
no matter where I go or what I do,
you will always be a part of me."
Happy Mother's Day Mom!
