Last September my girls and I took a crazy weekend road trip. We drove from Salt Lake City, UT to Pasadena, CA to the Rose Bowl to see 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction in concert. Both of my girls are newly adult and I knew it could be one of the last crazy fun things we could do together before they head out of the nest and create lives of their own. We had a spectacular time, almost no sleep, and memories that can last a lifetime. I promised them I wouldn’t show photos of them in tears watching the show, but I wanted to create something that we could store our memories in. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used October Afternoon’s Travel Girl Collection to make a memory box we can store some of the trinkets from our trip…. So today’s theme is:
Altered Memory Keeping
Create something that preserves a memory, but not a layout or album. Maybe create a canvas, a card, or a box. Here’s what I created:
It is so important to save your memories, not just on your phone or computer. This was one of those trips I never want to forget.
I love the eclectic mix of patterns in this collection. The papers along with the chipboard, doo-dads, pennants and stickers can create a wonderfully nostalgic place to keep those mementos.
So go out, create those memories and then create a place to save them.
