Maya Road Shadow Box

Hey everyone and happy Sunday to you. Hope you are having a nice and lazy day today. :)

I have been wanting to share this for a while...a little something I created, inspired by my sweet little girl...something to hang in her room featuring Maya Road products and the Maya Road Shadow Box.

I packed a lot of goodies I've been hoarding for a while...too many to even write down, LOL! The spoon on the side is a special one. It's been in my husband's family for many many years. I think this particular one is from the early 1900s and these are all Catherine spoons. Spelled in different variations though, but the name is certainly special to the family. My Catie is named after my mother-in-law, another Catherine, and this spoon has the same name engraved on it. If you click on the picture, you can see that it is spelled "Catharine." So interesting the different spellings!

Here's a closeup of the cameo chipboard set. I kind of created a necklace with it from my stash of extra jewelry when I dabbled in that a while back. :)

I love making little zipper flowers and all of the new colors yet to play with!

I created a Catie banner using the Tiny Banner Singleton stamps and the coordinating Tiny Banner Chipboard bits. I totally love that there are the stamps that fit the chipboard perfectly. LOVE that!

And well, I couldn't go without creating a matching card to go with. :)

Hope you enjoyed! Just a sampling of all the yummy things you can create with loads of Maya Road products!

Ok, off to enjoy the rest of the last bit of weekend. I will be back bright and early tomorrow morning for the beginning of the Taylored Expressions release week sneaks!

Thanks for stopping by!

One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen...made with love. It's exquisite! My name is Katherine also...named after my mother and great grandmother who spelled hers Catherine. Thank you so much for sharing!
