Beach Memory Jar

This memory jar came together this afternoon.
I had no idea what I was going to do beforehand, it just sort of fell together.
I like how it turned out.
It fits in nicely with our decor, and still preserves our summer beach memory.

I filled a mason jar with sand and beach rocks we collected on our trips to the beach.  

This is the ONLY picture I was able to get of the two of them together.
Cooperating for pictures is such a challenge sometimes!

Anyway, I headed over to Picnik with my picture, added the sepia effect, and added the text near the bottom: "Warren Dunes, MI Summer 2011"
I printed the the picture on sticker paper in wallet size and cut it out with an oval cutter.

For the lid I cut a circle out from a sheet of cork.
I think the look of the cork has that sand feel.
Then I used brown paint and a toothpick to make "footprints" in the sand.

It's a keeper. :)

Linking up to THESE awesome parties!
