I put this shadowbox together for my Dads 60th birthday. I sectioned it into 4 parts....his childhood, army, my mom and him, and his kids. For the childhood part I got his mom and 2 sisters to write a memory from his childhood. Along with their pictures.
In the army section I put his dogtags, pictures of him in uniform, his medal from Vietnam (he had lost these before I was born so I had to reoder them). My mom and his wedding picture and a copy of their marriage license. Adn a tag that she wrote a birthday message to.
A picture of me and my sisters with tags we wrote messages to him on.
This was a blast to do!!I love the way it came together!
