Sisters and Rob's Stash

Grace and Bernice are two beautiful ladies who I have known for quite a few years. They are sisters. Grace recently passed away, and I had this photo of them together, so I decided to make something for Bernice as a memorial gift. I put this layout together and put it in a shadow box frame (Target for $9.99), and I will give it to Bernice this week.

One of the young men I know is heading off to college next week, so I made him a container full of goodies. I used a shortbread tin, spray painted it, then covered it with cardstock in his new school colors with some inspirational quotes and rubons. I filled it with popcorn, cookies, candy bars, other snacks, and added a sewing kit, some gift cards for local restaurants, a roll of quarters, and some cash. I think he's really going to like this.

Thanks for stopping by to look. I've got to head out to deliver Rob's gift to him this afternoon.

Big hugs to everyone!


  1. Theresa, you are such a sweetheart!! Both gifts are wonderful and I am sure they will treasure them!

  2. You know how I feel about your layout...I love the stash!! Perfect for someone heading off to college. I loved getting stuff like that. He will love it :)

  3. That is such a beautiful layout and an amazing keepsake for your friend. You are such a sweetie!!

  4. Wow! What a beautiful keepsake gift for her. I'm sure she will treasure it. I'm also happy to know Target has the frames for 9.99-I need a few myself! Cool gift in the tin : )


Thanks for the love - it makes my heart sing when I hear from my lovely friends!
