Never Forget with EAD!

Hi all! Well Spring is finally here! Yay:) Right now our yard is filled with pretty blooms from our apple, cherry, and lilac trees. I just had to take a few photos to share with you.

Here's our apple tree-

our cherry trees

and some daffodils I took mid February!

Ok, so here's my project. I had went to Michaels awhile back and found some $1 recipe boxes. I decided to turn one of them into a address/special occasions box. I used the word "remember" from the Baroque Frames rub on set in hot pink and lime. I cut the word apart every 2 letters and switched the color. I also used the hearts from the Hearts rub on set. I outlined the word with stickles to help it stand out more. Added some rifraf on the lid and a few buttons on the bottom. My plan from the box is to make cards that fit that I can put a person's address, birthdays, anniversaries , and any other special occasion.
My Recipe:

Baroque Frames and Hearts from E.A.D Designs
Recipe box from $1 bin
patterned papers
misc buttons
green rifraf

Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team and then head back to the E.A.D. Designs blog to see whats new!
