Shadow Box Frame

My grandma's 78th Birthday was last week and we gathered as a family to take her out for dinner and celebrate with her :) It was fun gathering together, chatting, catching up, laughing and just enjoying each other's company.

Instead of chicken essence, toiletries, etc as birthday gift, this year, I made my grandma a gift from the heart :) My only regret is that this photo doesn't have my brother in it... he's in the US for post-graduate studies at the moment and so, that's why he's not in the picture... sobs.


This photo was taken during my mum's birthday last December :) We celebrated it with her friends as well. Grandma followed us back to Johor to celebrate with her. Was fun :) 


I love shadow boxes... because I can just put any embellishments I want and make everything more 3D :) I had wanted to make one of these for the longest time but as always, I'm queen procrastinator, you know... haha


Am gonna make more :) Warning : Making this can get addictive :)

Quirky
p/s : you can order this specially customized for you as well. Email me at angelicquirk@gmail.com to find out how! :)

I bet this gift from the heart will melt your grandma's heart! :) I totally comprehend when you said that making this is addictive! Last year all my family member's bday gifts were all shadowboxes, some conveniently bought from Ikea, while some from custom framing shop. I'm sure I'll be making more of those! :)

Really cool gift and so pretty! Hey, I noticed you have a Canon Selphy...DO you print all your photos with that? I.e.those which you use for your layouts? Is it any good? I have to run to the photo shops anytime I want to print something. :( Thanks for sharing!

Evelin said...

Kim, wanted to reply to you through email but I can't access your profile... well, yes, I print out using the Selphy cos I lazy to run to the photo shop :P

The quality is good... well, not as good as if you print in the photo shop but it's not bad ;) I use it for all my layouts and mini albums :)
