As I have mentioned a few times already, we went down to Florida this Summer to visit my family. We had such a great time but you know the crafter in me could not go down there and not do some kind of craft right?
Okay I will fess up I did not craft at all on the trip, I did however think of this craft and got the supplies I needed for it there so that counts kind of anyway. I thought it would be cool to make a shadow box to remember our trip and my little ones first time at the beach!
My family probably thought I was nuts when I brought some baggies with me to the beach and stared filling them with sand and shells but hey who cares look how cool this thing is! And I actually did have fun taking a TON of pictures of the whole family on the beach (no really I took almost 200 pictures). Here are a couple showing how much fun we all had!
Okay enough with all my pictures, lets get back to the project. My daughter had a great time putting this together and remembering how much fun we had at the beach. She wants to go back and well so do I. That is one of the major things I miss about living here in the Midwest, there is no beach… well there are lakes but it is not the same when you grew up with the Ocean!
Do you like to make keepsakes from your trips? What kind of stuff do you make?
