Memory Box

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers. Firstly I want to  say a big thank you for all your recent comments they have been so  kind and I appreciate the time you all take to view my blog.
Today I'm posting a Memory box I made to take for my friend Val last week. I didn't know what to  take and had seen these on a number of American blogs and on Pinterest so decided to  have a go.
I enjoyed decorating it and  hopefully it will be something my friend can treasure and also store some precious things of Ed's ..
