Christmas Shadow Box

I have been wanting to make a shadow box for quite some time, but I didn't have the right supplies to do so. Then Harper got Dad some cologne for Christmas, and it came in a box perfect of making a shadow box. The only problem was that it was Christmas patterned. Not wanting to wait a whole year to do my craft, I went ahead and made a Christmas shadow box. I know that it's only March, but it's never too early to start preparing for Christmas.

I think I'll give the shadow box to my mom. (Unless she sees it on my blog. She doesn't normally read my blog, but occasionally she will get on. Hopefully this is not a post she looks at.) Anyway, I used this year's Christmas card picture and some cute stickers and accessories to make it. I think it turned out pretty well for my first shot. I only wish that it didn't have a huge 'Ralph Lauren' logo across the side.

Below is a recipe for yummy oatmeal raisin bread. This stuff is great. I always think oatmeal enhances the flavor and texture of baked goods.
