Before I start building a memory box, I gather all the items I think I will decorate it with and make sure they look good together. Just like this snapshot below.
Doesn’t it just make you want to sail away to a secluded island with bright blue water and pink, sandy beaches, a cold beer and your best friends? Oh geez, I guess I’m needing a vacation! We are cruising to the Southern Caribbean in January and I just can not wait!
My dear friend Chrissy is basking in the warm sunlight on a swanky beach somewhere in Mexico right now with her new husband Scott and their families. Well, Chrissy is probably sitting by the pool 🙂 They got married yesterday and I designed this box around their beach wedding. I was able to give it to her a few weeks ago at her shower and she loved it, yay!
I knew I wanted to use bright blue textured paper to represent ocean water and a creamy colored papery and accents to represent sand but had no idea what else to do. So, I wandered around hobby lobby for awhile and it just came to me!
So happy for you Chrissy & Scott! Now I can’t wait to see all the photos from the wedding!
