Packing Up and Smash Book

A few weeks before vacation i picked up a smash book at target on clearance for $3. I took it with us with the hopes of everyone jotting down memories throughout the trip and a way of keeping all of the things you collect during a vacation. It worked better then expect and I am so happy with the treasure it became! 
Here is what i took with me: the book and a ziplock with items to put it all together.
Inside the ziplock was  coordinating washi tape, pen and smash book pen which also has a glue stick, and two smash book tablets. Honestly the only thing i really ended up using was washi take, pen and glue stick!

 Lots of memories written by everyone

Once we got home i got our favorite pictures printed and stuck them in. On days when i had a lot i layered them like a flip book.
I collected receipts and small items from stores that i knew i could put in the book (like the little pirate coin from the Festival Island gift shop).

I also picked up buisness cards from almost everywhere we went!

sand from our private beach and a few small shells (i had more in there but it made the book really bulky)
