DT Wild Orchid Crafts - Challenge #31

Wild Orchid Crafts is yet again ready with a new challenge, and for our Challenge #31 we'd like to se lots of TAGS!
You can make eighter tag shaped creations or creations with tags, just have a look at what the amazingly talented DT has made to inspire you, at the WOC Challenge Blog :)


A neighbour girl ordered a heart shaped box from me, for her boyfriend, some time ago :)
She wanted to give him a little "love gift", to show how much she loves him.
She wanted the box to be in blue tones, with an image of two people that cares for each other.
Well, this is how the box turned out :)


The sentiment on the top, says "nothing but"; LOVE :)




Inside the box, there's a tag similar to the one on the top, to write a perconal greeting on :)



The sentiment inside the top says; Together is a great place to be :)



She also wanted the box to have some small tags in it, to write little love notes on...
How cute is that???




Luckily for me; both the girl and her boyfriend loved the box :)

In memory of...

One year has gone by...one long year, but it still feels like yesterday that you passed away.......


I can't see you
But I see you anyway
I can't touch you
But I touch you anyway
I can't feel you
But I feel you anyway
You're around me
Anywhere, everywhere
Silently you embrace me
and I know you'll always be there for me
In my thoughts, in my heart...

I miss you so much....

In memory of my beloved "mommo"
