I got this idea from Papertrends magazine. These are seashells collected from our vacation last week in Ocean City. They are in an antique Bell jar and I put the rub-on: "Treasures from the Sea" on the jar. Then I added tags - one for each of my children - and when I get the photos from our vacation developed, I'll add a phtograph of each of them playing on the beach to the tag. I also included a tag with the dates of the trip and our actual beach tag for the week. The large tags are leftover from the Saddlestitch book kit and the others are from Pockets and Pieces.

What a wonder idea! I just got my pockets and pieces and saddle stitch book, can't wait to play. You have created a beauty way to recall your trip. We are going to the lake next month and I will make something similar. [Hope it is as nice as yours!]

When I first glanced at the small picture, it looked a jar of frogs. I had to click and see it bigger. Then I was able to see it was shells. This is a great way to keep those "souvenirs" safe and cute. I love the tags. TFS
