Tell Your Story: Sports Shadowbox

 This week one of my new customers friends sent in an inspiring idea of what she had done with her ShadowCases.  I loved it so much, I asked her if I could share it with all of you ladies.
First of all, she is so gung-ho on this that she did the whole thing in like a day!  Second of all, she actually took the time to send in photos of her project. You go girl!  I could definitely learn a lesson or two from you about finishing ShadowCase projects. ;-)  Here's what she had to say:

"My son LOVES sports! He loves to play every sport, watches sports, learns about sports and is basically a sports nut. My youngest sister's boyfriend was the high school quarterback for his team. My son loved to watch their games. For Christmas this year (since he is done), he wanted to pass on the football legacy to him. He gave him his jersey (which he had signed), his stickers from his helmet, a very nice note and some of the stickers he had earned throughout his high school experience. We wanted to have a way to keep them safe, but also showcase such a special gift. We couldn't believe he would give such a treasured gift to my son (he is only 10 right now).

So, the other shadowbox is full of my son's special things from this summer when he made the All-star minor league baseball team. He was selected to be on the team and he loved every minute of it. So, these are both on my son's wall. He couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out and for being able to showcase his love of sports. Thanks for creating the perfect thing to help us keep such special things stored in the perfect way. They went together so easily! I would highly recommend them! They are perfect! Everything about them. I loved how the frames attached to the front. I loved how the board was two sided. I loved the fun pins that hooked everything so perfectly together. I loved all of the matching accessories. I can't wait to work on my next project! Thanks!


Don't you just love what she did with the vinyl lettering under the 2 ShadowCases?  Now my 12-year-old son is asking why I haven't put his football stuff up in his room yet!  Okay, okay, it's definitely on the list of New Year's resolutions for me now!

Hi, ShadowCase! Thanks for stopping by Kelley Highway to see my post "Make an Heirloom Shadowbox." I would feel honored to be featured on your blog! What a treat!

And your blog is just too cool, too creative and too memory-savy. Love your work!
