Another Memory Keeper

I made this memory keeper recently for my neighbor who was making a basket to be donated for a fund raiser. I gave her an assortment of items, and when I showed her this little box to hold photos (or recipe cards, etc) she loved it! I used a piece of DP by K&CO along with some lemon tart and new leaf cardstock and ribbon from PTI. The sentiment is from SU and was cut with Nestabilities. I just love making these little boxes!
I haven't made many cards in the past few days because we're putting together a huge jigsaw puzzle. I haven't done one in years and we're really enjoying this. It's a good way to relax and sometimes I just get burned out from card making and need a good alternative.
Whew! We had some blizzard in PA (and other states) yesterday and I can't believe it, but we may get another inch or two of that white stuff again this coming Monday :) Wheeeee!!!
Take care, stay warm and have a great Thursday!!

Beautiful papers, girl! Your neighbor is going to LOVE this!

...lol at the comment about the deck. I said the same thing to DH yesterday that I hoped the deck didn't fall. There's a LOT of snow out there. Yikes!

I love these memory keepers.. such a great idea to keep photos together when scrapping all of them just isn't an option. This is beautiful, Carol.

Hmmm.. I wonder if one could attached a memory keeper on a scrapbook page! (Does that defeat the purpose?!? lol)
