Memorial Day was originally named Decoration Day, and was a day to remember and honor all those that died serving the US. Throughout the years, it has formed into a day where we can pay our respects to everyone in our lives who we have lost.
One of our traditions on this day was visiting the cemetery and placing flowers on our loved ones' graves. One of the people I have lost that has made the most impact on my life, is my Grandma. She passed away 24 years ago battling cancer.
I thought I would make a gift for my mother, in remembrance of her mother. I found this neat flag themed box. I thought it was the perfect size for my mom to keep jewelry or memorabilia inside of it.
The image I chose was taken by my grandpa, her husband, around the time they were married. I can see her beauty through his eyes in this picture.
I used a variety of amazing products to decorate this gift. Petaloo Flowers, Bo Bunny Jewels, Prima Flower Color Bloom Sprays, Flowers and Wood Veneer, Ranger Stickles and Pearl Mists, and Simple Stories Wood Veneer all from FotoBella.
