Cool Ways to Preserve Your Vacation Memories

Vacations might not last as long as we would like them to but we can preserve our memories of them to enjoy and to pass on.  When we experience fun with loved ones and family we want to hang on to that good feeling and share our stories with others.  I know I always bring back postcards, tons of photos and all kinds of trinkets, mementos and souvenirs.  I have scrapbooks and little collections around the house to remind me of those good times.  Here are some fun  and clever ideas to preserve and display your haul.
