I have to say that casing Lana is intimidating. When I first came on to SCS, she was (and still is) one of those that I look up to as a pioneer here. And she was in the dirt pile back in the day when I dreamed of being of that class! My sincere congrats, Lana, for being celebrated today. Many thanks, too, for the years of inspiration you've given us all.
I took on the task of remaking Lana's Matchbox dressers seen here:
Not having the matchbox die (or a big shot, for that matter!), I had to do the math and cut my pieces with out a die. I thrive on that stuff, though. I can't tell you how soothing math is to the OCD brain.
I found a new (to me) stamp store just a couple miles from my house recently. I visited them on Saturday and picked up a few items so I definitely had to pack on whatever I could! LOL
I'll be blogging this later this evening with more pictures and some basic measurements/instructions if you're interested.

I'm very impressed with your dresser (sans diecuts), Holly. I like math problems, too; so I was intrigued with your project. I wish I had a new stamp store open near me -- Mike's, Joann, and Hobby Lobby is all that's available to me. Looks like you got some winners at your new store!

Toy, that is so funny that you say that, because I look to you for inspiration. You make the most wonderful cards and projects! Thank you for the kind words. And your matchbox is fabulous! Just fabulous!
