For a Friend

Tuesday, December 2, 2008



I created this box for Lisa, a friend and customer who lost her mother after a long illness. Sometimes we're not ready to scrapbook all those precious photos when a loved one passes, but we want to keep them close so we can visit those memories often. Lisa's mother loved cobalt blue, and Lisa loves warm autumn colors, so I chose a color pallette for both of them. I left a blank space on the front for a special photo, but kept the inside simple to accomodate the loose photos and allow anyone to easily look through the pictures. When Lisa is ready to scrapbook, she'll have everything in one place.
