  19. Sherry – this is the most wonderful creation! I LOVED the little meaningful stories for each carefully “configured” box. The amazing collection of memories you must have!

  27. Wow, Sherry! What a fabulous project.

  50. This is so special Sherry. I love how you used all the pieces with meaning to them inside. What a great family heirloom this will be.

  51. I love that!!! I do really wish you could have incorperated me in there somewhere, but maybe that will be a crafty day job that I have planned for us. Great work on all that.

  106. Wow GF, what an amazing configeration of your imagination and pure ART! I luv that so many things all have memories, how sweet!

  107. Sherry—I just HAD to comment—WOW, what a breathtaking self-portrait of yourself and your life. It`s sooo totally cool! My favorite box is each of the girls with their hospital bracelets and pink ribbons …. totally made my heart ache <3
    Can`t wait to take a look at the remainder of the DT to see what they did with their box. TFS xo

  108. What a great way to keep memories visible! Love what you’ve done.

  109. I LOVE these fabulous boxes!! so much to do with them!!

  110. I love how you chose to make each compartment have it’s own little story to tell. That’s a brilliant idea instead of doing a piece that all coordinates. Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of doing both kinds. I just also think your idea was a great one. Beautiful memories, you can tell just by looking that your art piece is very personal. Thank you so much for sharing your art with all of us.

  111. Sherry, thank you so much for taking us on this little journey of your memories! It was so fun!

    Your shadowbox is truly special, something of which your family and friends will be in awe!

  112. Sherry, this box is such a treasure – or collection of treasures! Love the way you shared all your mementos and the memories they hold. I also love the way painting it all black really unified everything and allowed your treasures to shine!

  113. A Lovely Memories configoration I loved ready all about each box, I collect things and I’m sure mine would look just like yours and still I would have loads of collectables left! lol.

  114. Sherry – your box is a-MAZ-ing!! What a wonderful keepsake – made even more special by the stories tied to each vignette.

  115. I love your box, and the way you personalized it, Sherry! I love all the momentoes from your grandfather’s cigar box. I wish I still had one of my grandfathers cigar boxes. I used to play with them so they were not taken care of! Is that a 1920 silver dollar? What a keepsake!

  116. Wow Sherry what an awesome keepsake full of so many teasures. It was fun to read about each box. Awesome job!

  117. Great way to share memories and honor your family.

  133. Sherry,
    Wonderful job!!!! This is the best out of all the boxes because this is just what I plan on doing with mine. You have so many special memories when you look at each box..I lost my Dad 11 years ago to Pancreatic Cancer and I have lots of tokens I can use to make a box just in mrmory of him.
