Father's Day Shadowbox

I've been working on a Shadow Box to give my husband for Father's Day and I think he's really going to like it! The background is John Deere Scrapbook paper, and then I added some additional elements to it:

- shipping tag stamped with key collage (Unity Stamp Co) onto which I added ribbon, a key (K&Co) and a sentiment.
- Die cut leaves layered over a flooring sample (thrift store)
- heart sticker border (Wal Mart), green ribbon, twine
- A chipboard frame distressed, and then #1 Dad stickers added behind it on cardstock

I also added a slide frame covered with an NC map fragment and a play $5 bill tied up in a roll. Those will sit inside the frame, but I couldn't get a good picture with the glass in the frame, so that's why the picture is taken without.

The hardest part of this project has been trying to get a decent picture, where the kids are actually smiling and looking at the camera! No luck on that so far, but other than the picture the shadowbox is done!
