As you have read, we were blessed to go on a fabulous beach vacation to Mexico this summer. It was incredible, and I wanted to find a way to include the memories of this trip in our home decor. I found a 40% off coupon for Hobby Lobby when they already had all frames and shadowboxes marked 50% off. Awesome! I saved the free maps and brochures that we collected on our trip to use as a background collage. Using Mod Podge, I attached them to a sheet of cardstock. I added the shells we found while snorkeling, and ended up with a super cheap and easy vacation memory collage. I’ve tried scrapbooking in the past, and always found myself spending way too much money and never finishing the thing. This was much cheaper and I actually completed it in a timely fashion.

How do you preserve your vacation memories?

I’m linking to some great parties. Check out the full list here.

  1. That is a super cute idea for vacation shots. i made a scrapbox for my then boyfriend/now husband celebrating our first year together dating. i had saved movie ticket stubs, menus from our favorite restaurants and pics to fill it with. It turned out cute, but i haven’t thought to do another one.

  2. Awesome idea! I think I will have to do this for our recent trip to Florida. We got a lot of shells, maps, souvenirs and pictures while at the beaches on the gulf. This will be a great way to display all the goodies we have sitting in a box in the living room!

  3. A lovely way to store those memories.. a couple of shadowboxes are my current project.. but I just can’t get the right layout in them at the moment.. I’m loving yours for inspiration..
