Two-fer One!

This project was created to meet 2 challenges this week. The Crazy4Challenges#21 to create a project/card with a pink theme and the Just Us Girls Challenge#17 to create something using a template. I found GinaK's 2-part video and template for this memory keeper box on StampTV here , here, and here. The template for the journaling card is also included in the last link. I used PTI Berry Sorbet for the base color and added a sheet of dp by CK-OK that I've had forever in my stash. I made a box similar to this last week and mailed it to a friend, so I decided to make another one for myself. The pictures you see are of my sweet little ''Joey" who's been gone for several years now. I'm going to tuck those photos in this box for safe keeping until I get around to scrapbooking them.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far and thanks for stopping in to visit today:)
