Beach Vacation - DIY Souvenir

Are you looking forward to a little bit of this......


Summer is just around the corner (believe it or not) and if you have a beach vacation planned, I have a really fun idea for you!


Every time we hit the beach my kids start a new collection of VERY special items. 
No matter what I say, my kids always convince me that these are the best shells they have EVER found!
I always bring them home and think I will do something amazing with them, but usually they sit in a box until my kids forget about them.

Well, last year our family took a very special vacation and my kids did collect shells and I finally came up with the perfect way to save and display our new shells.


Isn't it cute??? Not only is it the permanent home to all our favorite shells, it is also home to that cute little green fish that my daughter had in one of her tropical smoothies on the beach. 

Our shell collection sits on a shelf in our family room right next to a photo from our memorable vacation.

Thanks SO much to Expressions Vinyl for the vinyl I used in this project.

Visit their booth at Let's Create Expo, April 22-23, 2016 and pick up some vinyl for some projects of your own. 

ALSO: the photo of my project was taken using Shotbox, LLC. Check out my earlier post highlighting their product and see how easy it is to take great photos! Plus, don't forget to check them out at our upcoming show!

Shotbox - New 2016 Vendor


We have a number of fantastic **NEW** vendors joining us in 2016. I am REALLY excited about them. We are always on the lookout for what is new and exciting in the crafting industry and Shotbox is one of those finds that we are really excited about!

First off, Friday morning Shotbox will be offering a FREE demonstration/tutorial class at Let's Create Expo. It will be held in Classroom A at 9:00 am. Mark your calendars and sign up early because space will be limited. Come learn how to digitize scrapbook pages, documents, etc into high quality images using Shotbox. You will be amazed to see what you can do with a Shotbox and the camera on your phone.


Now, a little more about Shotbox.....

I have been using Shotbox now for about 6 weeks and I am in LOVE with it!

Shotbox is perfect for bloggers, scrapbookers, artists, genealogists, crafters or anybody else who wants to take quality photographs without all the expensive equipment. If you have kids interested in stop motion animation, this is also great for that.



Here are a few photos I took with my phone (HTC 1) using Shotbox:



Check out my earlier post all about vinyl! Another one of my favorite items at our 2016 show!



In the past I have spent hours trying to get lighting just right to take a nice photo. That is totally in the past now! I can't say enough about how much I love my Shotbox. Make sure to stop by their booth at the show April 22-23, 2016 and learn more about this brand new product!
