a just-for-fun project

Yesterday inspiration struck,
and I enjoyed working on a just-for-fun project.

My goal was to combine this family photo
with some calligraphy and this thrifted shadow box to make something special. (The shadow box was brand new, and I got it for $0.25 since it had a spot for a tassel and a "Class of 2008" labeled frame in it. I brought it home, pulled them out, and had a nice blank slate.)
An afternoon of calligraphy-ing, designing, cutting, and adhering, produced this:
I must admit that I like it very much.

I think it is perfectly lovely.
Anything hand-made makes my heart beat faster:)
