Cricut Circle Magazine, Thrift Store Find Challenge

On the way to visit my in-law's, I stopped in the Salvation Army Thrift Store looking for some goodie for the Cricut Circle thrift store find challenge.  These wooden trays caught my eye, I thought I could make a shadow box.  Perhaps in a later life, these trays were type-set boxes or maybe some old organization tray for a desk.  With my new Give a Hoot cart in hand, I thought I would make some earthy, peace loving, nature themed shadow box.  As you can see, I switched gears to accommodate my dear daughter's funky style.  All of the cuts are from Rock Princess except the deer who is from Give a Hoot.  The box has some of my daughter's bracelets and rings on display for some extra bling.  This is proudly on display in my Daughter's room, aka, the purple palace.

This is phenomenal! I would love to make something similar after seeing this. Different style to fit my home, but just the idea is too good not to want to scraplift :)
