As summer winds to an end we all get a little emotional.  Memories were made, vacations were taken, images captured.  What better way to commemorate these events than with this awesome frame?  It just screams summer with flip-flops, sand, sun, and seashells:

The beach has become iconic of the American summer vacation.  Families across the country take an average of 4.5  trips per year, and sun and sand are the most popular destinations. The end of summer also brings back-to-school preparations.  It might be your child’s first time off to kindergarten, or a nearly grown teenager returning to class.  Either way, we have to get ready.  We want them to look their best on that first day back.  Hair combed smoothly, wearing the trendiest looks to hide their nervousness.  Be sure to snap a shot of them as they head out the door.  They’re sure to complain, but you’ll be glad they did when you can look back at them in this frame in a few years:

While shopping for new clothes and shoes to wear, don’t forget to grab supplies!  Fill up that new backpack with brightly colored pencils, pens, folders, and notebooks.  The store shelves are filled with every character and color scheme the kids are into.  With more options than ever before, back-to-school will be a lot less “boring.”  Check out this frame for inspiration:

As the school year progresses, there are various concerts, plays, parties, and sporting events to record for future reminiscing.  Also, you cannot forget the everlasting school picture.  Using Imikimi frames will provide boring school pictures with the opportunity to shine, and they’ll make cherished keepsakes for friends and family:

Your child’s teacher plays a significant part of his or her school year.  Teachers are with the kids day in and day out and (usually) come to feel as if they are their own children.  Sneak a class picture while you’re on a field trip, or take a photo of the teacher from the yearbook and stick it here for a Christmas gift that’s sure to make her smile:

Whether you’re considering taking your first trip abroad or hitting the road with the brood, the best photos are the ones you took yourself. Still undecided where your next much-needed, much anticipated vacation will be this year?  Hop on a search engine near you and get ready for adventure!  You can take flights of fancy to far off places and exotic locales!  You can research places you’ve been considering traveling to, look for ideas, and see places you are curious about. The options are practically limitless. What could be better?  You can take a look at the best photos the web has to offer of a location and get a feel for it before you have to spend a dime!

If you’re a professional photographer or just appreciate capturing the beauty in a great sunset, there are many destinations that offer photo ops galore! Perhaps you would like to travel to Europe, for example.  London might just be your cup of tea. Take a look at some of the best photos from the area.  What do you see?  Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, The Tower Bridge perhaps?  All great examples of British history and postcard quality photos for your scrapbook! Perhaps you’d like to take a stroll down the streets of Rome.  There is definitely no shortage of terrific places to snap a pic or two of your family to post on your website.  Don’t forget to get one with them in front of the Coliseum or Trevi Fountain! No trip to Rome is complete without those two sites behind the smiling faces of your family.  Saint Peter’s Basilica or the Sistine Chapel, home of Michael Angelo’s  awe-inspiring ceiling frescos also offer beautiful photos.  Perhaps Europe isn’t on the agenda this year.  That’s okay, there is no shortage of photo-friendly places to go that will satisfy the photographer in you!  All it takes is a little research and imagination.  Go ahead!  Type “vacation” into your favorite search engine and see what comes up. See any great photos?
