Shadow Box and Holiday Thankfulness!!!

I had a chance to play with Vicki Chrisman's new Shadowbox dies and the possibilities are limitless!!!! I thought it would be fun to dress up our Easter Table with some fun little decorations and I am totally loving the results!!! Easter has such a special meaning in our home! We have had many traditions since our children were very small. We know in our hearts we would not be the people we are today without the fact the Christ loved us so much that he chose to die for our sins and rise again at Easter!! Thank you Lord for your indescribable gift!!! I love the fact that Easter celebrates newness, a life forgiven of sin and in this little shadowbox all the little goodies represent that very concept. I may have vintage photos, but the innocence of childhood, the new chick, the flowers and butterflies all shout out that life can be renewed!!!
Thanks for letting me ramble on, but my heart is bursting at the seams with thankfulness!!!
