Memory Box for VernaAnn Gabrielle
Here is a memory box I've painted up for Allison & Ross and their family to store treasured memories of their sweet angel, VernaAnn. The text on her wings is from poems printed in her funeral service program.
I printed her name on scrapbook paper and then sealed it under diamond glaze.
Since VernaAnn touched so many hearts around the world, I wanted that to be a part of this piece. I used scrapbook paper in a map theme, cut it up into small pieces and decoupaged it to the inside along with small photos also used in the program. I love the photo with her sweet little feet adorned with her parents wedding bands♥ (Click to enlarge)
Along the sides, in silver, I wrote a lovely little poem that Colleen shared with me.
"The angel from the book of life wrote down your baby's birth, and whispered as she closed the book, 'too beautiful for earth'"
I then added a little eye hook to dangle a beautiful charm I found at Michaels. It's a wing and a cross.
Thank you all again, so very much for your prayers for VernaAnn!
Allison is having a tough time, the tears seem to just keep flowing, so please, if you would, continue to keep her and her husband Ross, their 2 little girls (Faith & Sophie) in your prayers. Healing will come in time, but for now she needs love and support more than ever.
