memory box

hi all
i have been working on this box for a couple of days in between xmas cards,i wanted to make a memory box for my daughter for xmas and fill it with photo's and letters and bits and bobs from my parents who have now passed so she can look back on them from time to time.i love how it turned out  hence my over indulgence with all the pics,
it was an old brown box to start and it never ceases to amaze me what can be created with a bit of craft stash.
