  12. Oh here is your MEDAL! Big congratulations on such a super milestone. Not many of us make that long in a marriage these days. It's too much work & commitment I guess. I LOVE this box. G45 is always my fav dp, and all the popups you've got exploding out of this pretty Christmas box are stunning. Love the vintage look of the pictures, and the lacy medallions on the sides. Well done and Happy Anniversary to you both. Hope it was just a grand day. TFS & Hugs
