Can anyone help me get rid of these 2 boxes ?

I can't figure out how they showed up in the first place... I've remove the check marks next to all my layers and the boxes won't go away.

I'm getting desperate as I would rather not have to start over from scratch.

Those are annotations. To delete an annotation:

  1. Select the annotation button at the end of the Attributes toolbar. enter image description here
  2. Double click on the annotation to open the annotation editing window. Click "delete." enter image description here

Annotations are a useful way to add text or images to a map, unless you add them by accident, in which case they're really annoying. In QGIS 3.x, you can link an annotation to a particular map layer, so it only displays when that layer is active.
