I was thinking about family after looking through some older photos that I have and thought I would put together a collage. I used pictures of my grandparents, my mom, and my 2 uncles, and then I copied them onto cardstock. I put together other papers and "findings" from my art room, and came up with this collage. The picket fence is rusted metal and a lid from a tea jar was used, too. The verse in the lid reads, "find a nice gal and settle down." The verse under my grandparents' picture reads, "Side by side, our life together is full." My grandparents were married on January 1st, 1934. I am very fortunate to have these photos and wanted to do something special with them!!

I had fun working on this box, which is all about romance!! I had found the box in a goodwill store and used different items to finish it off. The verses which I included in this project are: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." by Helen Keller and "I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you." by Roy Croft. Have a lovely day!!
