Thanks so much! I really hope they enjoy them. I gave them out the day before Castaway Cay so they would know to take a photo to go in them.

I would be honored. Paint the bottom half a sand color. Then mix glue (I used tacky glue) and a little of the paint together to hold the sand. I did two coats of this because two layers of sand looked better than one.

I have no idea how you could have missed it, Hadley! We did have amazing gifts, didn't we?! I use many of them frequently as well. It's a wonderful memory!

Cool! That's a craft you can even get the kids involved! I hope you mentioned to them that the sand and shells were from Florida. That makes it even more special. That would be a wonderful idea for others who live near a shore to use as their "local" gift.

You took my idea! I made those frames with the sand and shells from the beach here and gave them out as Christmas gifts last year and that was one of my ideas for FE gifts for our cruise. The only difference was that I wrote the names in the sand instead of at the top. It is such a fun thing to make and the kids love decorating them as well. Florida sand seems lighter than CA sand. When I mix it it comes out dark.

Actually, mine came out dark as well. Destin sand is WHITE!

I typed up the information about where the sand and shells came from and put it in the frame where the picture should go.

I think you are on the same December cruise as me, but feel free to do the frames. I am doing something different this time.

Barbara
sorry, I haven't been back to this thread for a while!

everyone is welcome to borrow my idea

I did buy a pack of empty cd cases. They were the skinny ones and didn't hold all of the pages. I put some of my music cds in the new cases and used my older (bigger) cd cases for the calendar.

I didn't staple the pages, just stacked them.

here is the site that I used as a guide:

I made laminated bookmarks out of 'cricut' film strips with photos in each of the 4 frames. They were a PAIN to make (tiny photos, not much gluing space, they slid when laminating, etc) and I'll never make them again. Don't even have one left to post a photo of.

Mock Up

I want your guys' opinion. I threw this together, so you can see a little glue that had not dried yet when I took the picture. It's a photo frame for a scrapbook or whatever you want.

Here's my questions: Is it too plain on the left side? Different colors for the wording? Different color for the frame (which would mean different colors for the wording)? I was thinking about putting Bon Voyage where Disney Magic is, but what do you think?

Anything else you want to throw out, please give me an opinion.

Wish I could do things like that but I don't have one crafty bone in my body!!
