All My Roses


When Jake proposed he gave me dozens of roses, and of course I dried and saved then all, so I would always remember that special day. After a while they were just collecting dust and taking up space. I was planing on taking off the stems and putting the blooms in a shadow box but never got around to it. Finally I got sick of looking at them and decided to just through them out. I asked Jake if he was okay with me getting rid of all the roses he gave me, he didn't seem to mind, but wanted to know why I decided not to put them in shadow boxes. I told him I was just tired of looking at them. We took pictures and the Jake started on the project I never got around to. What a great man.

The Finished Product.

FYI everyone, this was my idea to do the shadow box and roses. Yes it is so pretty but it does not even compare to the beauty of Sylvia's smiling face.
