Most of my readers know that I spent all of last week at the beach. I knew I was going to miss it as soon as I got home so I prepared this Make Something Mondays (I guess Tuesday in this case) as a way to remember it. I decided to make a shadow box to preserve the memory. It is always a great way to remember a vacation or event.
Things You Will Need:
Pin the picture to the top of the back of the shadow box.
Add the sand and shells to the bottom of the shadow box.
Reassemble the shadow box and shake the sand and shells around for a more natural look.
This is, by far, the best way to preserve memories.
A few years ago a coworker of my mom’s asked me to draw a picture of his family and add roses (from a wedding) to it. So I made a memoir box, similar to this one. The drawing is not a good one but he seemed to like the final package. It is more about the event and the memory than the drawing itself.

Glad you like it! I have extra sand if you want to try to make one with your latest beach pictures.
Very sentimental and beautiful! I love the colors of the photograph–so rich!
Thanks! I actually haven’t gotten my vacation pictures printed yet. This picture is from Jamaica a few years ago but it looks nice in the box.
I love this idea, very clever!!!!
Glad you like it! This is my favorite way to remember vacations. The standard frames bore me.
