A Vacation Memories Keepsake...

Pin It Now!
For the first time ever this year, our little family went on a warm winter vacation to somewhere semi-tropical...Florida.
We have always been too busy with our winter sports seasons to book ourselves this kind of vacation, or we just didn't have the extra in our budget.
But with the realization that our daughter will soon be off to University in 3 short years, we decided this year would be the year.
We had an amazing vacation....lots of wonderful, slow down-time on the beach.
No schedules. No early mornings. No practices. No homework.
It was peaceful & rejuvenating.

When I got home, I really wanted to make a tangible reminder of this vacation for us to remember.
I found a shadow box at Winners and I printed some black & white photos doing the thing we enjoyed the most...hanging at the beach.
We loved Cocoa Beach.


I really love how this simple project came together.
It is a snapshot in time....of the 4 of us together.
Happy. Relaxed.
A memory to place on our wall!

I love this over a traditional frame, Angie! The little clothespins are great and I love the embellishments and text you added, too.

Hi Angie. Your shadowbox turned fabulously! B&W's always convey so much character in a pic. Sounds like you and your family had a wonderful time together.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Angie. Your shadow box is so cute. Such a great idea.

I was in Florida visiting my oldest childhood friend, in February. We spent the day on Cocoa Beach, and it was the highlight of my trip. Especially since when I got back home to Minnesota it was 5 degrees out and a blizzard was going on!

Also...loved your camping tips. Have a great rest of the weekend!
