If you have plenty of wall space I think memory box's can be as good as memory albums. All three of these again have been picked up at car boot sales. Sunday mornings are my favourite time of the week. We have two great car boot sales every Sunday , one within walking distance.
This is a large printers tray I bought recently to record some of our trips to our three favourite City's Rome , Paris & Barcelona.
The papers I used were Bo Bunny , Gabriella , Kaisercraft & Prima Almanac . I've added lots of embellishments , trinkets , fridge magnets & key rings we bought on holiday plus Prima clocks-Birdcages , Tim Holtz ornate plate & lots of flowers.
I am now working on a printers tray about our holidays to the USA .I'll post it when it's finished.

Here is a shadow box of Dave , his son Antony & grandson Jamie while Dave was over in Czech for Jamie's 3rd birthday.
The back ground is a BoBunny Jungle theme paper which doesn't show up on the photo.
Using lots of little trinkets that I've collected along the way & a beautiful large flower that I don't know where I got it from.
The Wooden train Dave picked up from the Zoo at Ostrava in Czech.

Lastly for today is a Shadow Box I picked up last Sunday. It is  a memory of our last trip to Rome in May.
I have used Prima Printery paper & 7 Gypsies paper.
I also used a fridge magnet from Novona Plaza in Rome , a Replica Roman Coin  & a beautiful BoBunny Cameo and placed  a mirror in the middle.

I hope you enjoyed these three memory moments , if so  or if not please comment.
I have so many  Mirrors I have now decided to put some of them with my Bird Cages on E-bay. Please check my account. 


  1. Love your shadow boxes Chris!

  2. I love them - they're just gorgeous and such a lovely idea.

  3. They are such a good idea. Lots of lovely memories in one box.

  4. A really great idea. Thanks for sharing - you are so clever.

  5. Memory boxes are such a good idea and they work so well.

  6. I love keeping little trinkets and odd reminders, they would look much better like this than forgotten in a drawer!

  7. I like the idea of being able to display memories on a wall. I usually make collage's with photo's but this is even better. I think they all look lovely and unique.

  9. Love shadow memory boxes, somewhere to keep treasures save

  10. Great idea to have things on display to enjoy rather than shut away in boxes or drawers

  11. What a great idea Pat - even better with recycled frames. Hope you have a good week.

  12. I love this! Great idea, and well executed. Seems easy but I know it's not that easy to compose it in a pleasing way. Nicely done.
