Shadow Box Gifts

My In-Laws celebrated their 50th Wedding anniversary this year and for the occasion, we took family pictures.  I decided to make a Shadow Box Layout as a gift for Christmas.

Hope you like them and that it will inspire you to create your own.

I forgot to take a picture of this one in the Shadow Box.  This is a picture of the whole family.  I made this one for my In-Laws, since they have pics of all of us individually, I thought this would be very nice.

Here is Dan's older sister, Monique and her husband Emile and daughters Melanie and Sylvie.

Here is Dan's older brother Michel and wife Maryse and daughter Danyka.

Here is Dan's younger brother Stephane with his wife Sonia and sons Esteban and Sebastien.

Materials used for these were the Sonoma Paper packs and a few retired scrap pieces I had left over.

Thanks for looking.
