Some very good friends of ours marked their 30th wedding anniversary earlier this summer and we were invited down to Texas to help them celebrate. We were unable to make the trip but I wanted to do something to let them know how special they are to us. I usually would do a wine box for this kind of milestone but because they aren't big wine drinkers I opted for a memory box instead. We met these people for the first time at a business convention in Vegas. We hit it off right from the start and I knew that even though we were states apart that we would keep in touch. The lid of the box is representative of the carpet at the Bellagio and Wynn Hotels in Vegas as a nod to our connection with them. The flowers on the front were for the three decades and the date is, of course, their anniversary.
I struggled with what to do with the back side. I had so many dates, events, quotes that I wanted to use. In the end I went with a collage type design and did some major editing.
It was a fun project to do for some very fun people. Tony and Glynda we love you!
