We hope you will stop by both the  Craftin Desert Divas Shop  and the  Craftin Desert Divas Gallery Facebook group. We would love for you to join us and share your creations with us using Craftin Desert Diva's stamps. In this group we first show previews, Have giveaways and much more!
Now are you ready for my sneak peek!!!
Today we are showcasing Capture The Good Times.

For my project, I have used the Life is Like a Camera... and Capture the Moment... sentiments. As soon as I saw these sentiments, I knew they needed something special to showcase them. And with a bit of help from SVG Cuts and My Mind's Eye, I think it all worked out.
I have made the Ribbon Board and the Instant Camera Box from SVG Cuts. For both projects, I reduced the size of the files. The ribbon board is just about 6x6 and the photos on it are the 2x3 wallet sized prints from Walgreens. The paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found - Union Square 6x6 paper pad.

I wanted to make the Instant Camera Box just big enough to hold the 4x4 Instagram prints from Walgreens. At 39 cents a print, they are a bit expensive to do a lot; but so much fun! I want to say that I reduced the size of the box to 65.5% of its original size.
I made both of these projects for my husband as he loves looking through the pictures I take of our kiddos. I printed off about 35 photos to stick in there and will do some more later as there is still room in the box. It would be a great gift for dads and grandparents alike!!!

Here are some close-ups of the sentiments.
