Rosemary for Remembrance

This is my entry for the contest at Mind Wide Open. I've assembled it in one of those Martha Stewart presentation boxes that Michael's had on clearance last summer. It has a plexiglas lid with a beautiful scrolled outline. It's also impossible to photograph with the lid on.
I had my first adventure in burning paper edges. Fortunately, I was standing over the kitchen sink while I did this.
Everytime I hear the word remembrance, I think of rosemary...the herb of remembrance.
Assorted items from the goodie drawer found their way into this project.
Voting will commence after all of the images have been uploaded on July 8, and continue until midnight July 14. I'm really glad I participated in this contest; usually when I make something/anything--I give it away or gift it. I'm keeping this one. Edited to add...voting has commenced on the 32 entries in this contest. One vote per person; click HERE to cast your vote!

Teresa, this is just lovely. I can see why you would want to keep it.

I always love the meaning of different plants. I once saw a bride's bouquet of all meaningful plants. I thought it was so special.

Hi Teresa! Thanks so much for visiting my blog to comment on my bracelet. I love the project you did! I also love Rosemary. I have a little herb bucket near my kitchen door and I enjoy the frangrance of Rosemary every time I pass by. Good luck with the contest! ~ xo ~ Joy
