Shadow Box

I have a fun little project to share with you that was published in the March issue of Cricut Magazine. I took an inexpensive shadowbox frame I purchased from Michaels and converted to a fun piece for the craft room!  I spray painted the frame in cream and sanded the edges to give it a distressed look.  For the inside of the box I spray painted the spools in cream and sanded the edges.  I wrapped fun papers from Pink Paislee around each.  I covered the back panel with lime green paper and hot glued the spools to it.  The dress from was cut from the French Manor Cartridge.  I added a bit of lace, seam binding, and twine to the waist.
I used the Word Collage cartridge and white vinyl for the outside of the glass. I love the depth it all has together!  
Some of you asked about my hair....well the style really didn't change much, but I did get a few reddish streaks in my hair....not too incredibly daring, but I kind of like it! ; )  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
