Love/Remembrance at Craft Us Crazy

There's a new challenge up at Craft Us Crazy - it's Love and/or Remembrance.  
 I made a box for my mom based on one of her fond memories from childhood - making hollyhock dolls with her aunt.  The papers are The Girls Paperie and Melissa Frances.  Here is a picture of a hollyhock doll from Cat's Craftivity Corner.  
 Inside the box it says: 

 O, don't you remember the hollyhock dolls
We made when our birthdays were few?
As memories grow with the years fleeting fast
My love grows each birthday for you.

The poem is a part of the postcard that's on the top of the box.

The sponsor for this week at Craft Us Crazy is The Stamp Fairy
  The prize is a $9.00 gift certificate to the store!

I have been trying to comment on several blogs and have not been able.  It gets in some kind of loop after I write the post and then it asks me to sign in to google and then it just keeps asking me to sign in over and over.  I googled the problem and apparently I'm not the only one this is happening to, but it is frustrating!   I hope they get it fixed soon!

Be sure to check out Craft Us Crazy for all the details on the latest challenge and all the wonderful projects by the DT.
