Breast Cancer Configuration Box

 
For My Darling Sister
 

I created this box for my sister Annie in memory of our mother who died of breast cancer in 1994 at the age of 54.  Her name was Ada.
 
 


 
 

 













 

This is the box lit up.  Each compartment has light.

A true masterpiece! Love how you used the steampunk bits and the touches of black. Combined with the pink & lace, it's feminine but tough, just like breast cancer patients. Thank you so much for all the great close-up photos.

Hello Ivette,

This is so much more than a configurations box...
Although your mom sadly didn't made it and died at a young age, this is a tribute to her and the other women who have to fight this disease.

Love all the little bits and pieces , especially the " I miss you" tag...

How do you lighten the different boxes ? Is there a string of lights behind or did you use Tim's lanterns, but as they work with batteries, that wouldn't last very long...

greetings from belgium
Inge
