Enclosed Photo box for Lane

Life is pretty amazing

Starting with the Memory Maze 12x12 plain sheets of Chipboad, I cut them into the panels for this project.. They are 1&half inches on the sides x 6 inches for the front and back.. The chipboard gives it alot more strength than just using cardstock.. I actually marked out some white cardstock with scoring lines and stuck the chippie panels to it.. Then forming the box, I glued it all together.. Added an extra panel on the bottom for the base.. BOX MADE! 

Now it's Lane's turn. After seeing Hunter's photo box, Lane was pretty keen on having one for himself. However since he is now 12yrs old, I thought a more teenage grungy style would suit a little better.
So I have used the Kaiser "Scrap Yard" collection..

I love using bits and pieces from the tool shed for teenage boy themed projects. As you can see, I raided the washer container mostly for this box..
The Skulls on the Washi tape really fit well too.. What do you think?

Instead of photos being attached to the box, I have used a mini accordion style pullout thing for him. It too features photos from the first half of this year, plenty of journaling and definitely room for another accordion set to fit, which can feature the special events from the last half of the year.

The special moments in this album so far for 2016 include: Lane starting high school, becoming the youngest ever swim school champ (his House Captains were very proud!). Lane made the Rocky district team for the 3rd yr in a row for Swimming (even with a broken thumb), then went on to capture the Club Swim Age Champ too.. Made the AFL Rocky District & Capricornia Rep Teams.. He has taken up and really enjoys distance running, competing in some 5km events. He came 2nd Boy in his first race.. And he has started up CrossFit sessions also..

  1. What an amazing project! Somehow this was the link that was posted to SEM but it looks like your challenge entry is below but having only sons it was great to see a boy inspired project.
