Creative Vacation Imprints

Summ-er! Summ-er! Summ-er!! Woo-hoo! It's officially here!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Summer! I love the beach, the pool, I really do love having my house full of life and chaos....I do! I love it all! No schedules, no responsibilities, just FUN!

We make lots of memories during our summer months; however, we're not big vacationers. With 7 people it cost just WAYYYY too much money and the little ones don't travel very easily yet. So we stay close to home and venture out within a few hours from home. But whether you camp in your back yard, fly off to the Bahamas, or visit grandma, we're all making great memories that we don't want to forget.

*not my picture...not sure where it came from

Make sure you capture some creative photos of your summer adventures by leaving your family's mark behind. Something fun to do is to find a spot wherever you're at on vacation or maybe even your backyard and C R E A T I V E L Y write the place/date/event...using nature! Make a creative imprint. Take a picture of just your imprint or with the entire family.

One that we have all probably done is the beach one...writing your family's name or the date and place in the sand with a stick. But how about using shells or flowers...maybe you're in the mountains and you can use sticks, pine cones and rocks. Snow?? Use a shovel or sticks or even your equipment. Be creative, but just don't forget to capture this creative vacation imprint!

GREAT idea!!!! Thax! I loved you're jar/sand idea too. I want to create lasting memories for our family that they'll carry with them forever and hopefully into their future families. I also want to sit and think back with my hubby and remember all these good times once we're old as we look true pictures and videos! Thanx for the wonderful ideas!!! I hope I can remember them all when we have our kids!

Hugs, Susan

Great idea! I spend most of my time off at my parent's house in West Texas...I may have to spell my name in tumbleweeds :)

Great ideas!

I love summer too! My significant other's boys and my son get to play together a lot and I get a lot of great photos of them that I put together in a book for my SO. The summer just offers so many opportunities for get adventures.

Happy Saturday.

That is a really great idea! Sounds inexpensive and lasting, the best kind of keepsake! I was dropping in from SITs roll call, and this post caught my attention. Great job!
