Vacation Memory Jar

Way back in February before we went on our trip to Australia I saw an idea for on Pinterest for a vacation memory jar.

I knew right away that I wanted to make one too! So while I was in Australia I snatched some sand and shells (with my Dad's help too) to save for my jar. It has only been 5 months and I finally finished it.
Here is how it turned out:

Originally I planned on using a picture of Jason and I on the beach but I couldn't find one that looked right. So I went with two of my favorite landscape pictures from our trip and printed them as a size 3x4 (at Persnickety Prints, of course!). It turned out more simple than I imagined but I think I like the "clean" look.

Now, only 500 more Pinterest ideas to complete... :)

Pin It!
