Here’s your summer challenge: live in the past. Yes, I said the one thing we shouldn’t do EVER, but sometimes we need to do so. Are you one of those people that love Throwback Thursday? Do you watch your friends put up their cute photos, and are inclined to post your own? I’ve found that when I post #TBT pictures, my family actually gets really excited, even my parents who are adverse to social media. It brings back memories that they have of me as a little girl, or them as young parents. There’s a connection there, and it’s all because of a throwback.

For your summer challenge, look at your past #TBT shares, and see which ones make you the happiest. Re-share those this summer, and turn your absolute favorites into something awesome. CVS Photo can turn those beautiful photos into unique keepsakes. Can you imagine a picture of your family during a memorable vacation placed on a beach towel? How about a picture of you and your love on your honeymoon, placed on a mug? CVS Photo can offer all of that, lots of variety, online and in store.

CVS Photo offers cool ways to turn your favorite Throwback Thursday photos into modern keepsakes. From phone cases, to beach towels, and even large canvas prints to display in your home, they got you covered!

I’m partial to the summer tote and the phone case. Look at how they turned my babies into a cool case for my phone!

The case is actually very sturdy (the baby has dropped it numerous times already), and I’ve gotten so many compliments about it already. It’s my favorite picture of the 3 of them…so far. The best part is that I can always get another case when a new favorite picture manifests.

Did you enter the #CVSTBT contest we had on Instagram last week? One winner will have one of their favorite #TBT photos turned into a beautiful keepsake by CVS/Pharmacy. Today, we announce the winner.

Congratulations to Jackie H.! The picture of her lovely family at Disneyland Paris deserves to be on a mug, or a towel, or even a tote! Way to go, Jackie!

Do you know what Throwback Thursday picture (or pictures), you’re going to turn into something epic via CVS Photo? What’s the story behind that photo? Let me know in the comments below!

    Oh my gosh!!!! Look how little B was! I have a gazillion pictures just sitting on my phone. Thank you for the encouragement to get them OFF. I think I’ll start with a phone case like yours. And a mug. Ha!

      Hehehe! Yes to both! I think this might be a good way for all of us to get ahead of our holiday shopping, too. I’ve already thought of 3 gifts I want to give my in-laws.

    I love it! I didn’t even think of CVS for personalizing items. I’ll have to head there and get a new phone case. You know I love my girls on my phone case. They remind me to be happy. I’ll check out Instagram for next week’s post, too.

      Yes! Your girls would look too cute on a case. And you know folks will ask you all the time about them once they see their picture on your phone case lol.

    I didn’t know that I could get my photos off of my phone and ON TO my phone! Love this from CVS! Your son is so cute as Spider-Man.

      Ha! Yes! They have so many other options, too. I love the idea of putting a family picture on a throw. I think that’s going to be the next thing I order.

    What a great way to get those photos off your phone!! I need to do this ASAP. We have a TON of memories just sitting in my photo album. A tote would be great!

      Amiyrah said:

      Yes Vaneese! I love the idea of just going through our most recent TBT pictures. We tend to share the cutest ones anyway, so why not pick the best ones and turn them into a keepsake?

    You can do so much at CVS!!!! I was just thinking the other day when I saw your tote that I want to get one made. The kids always leave during the summer and it would be great to put our favorite picture on there so they can always be with me! I’m still trying to think of a #TBT photo that I like!

      Amiyrah said:

      That is a great idea, Mandi! It could become a summer tradition. A new tote and picture each year 😀

    I so need to go through my pics and head over to CVS and do something to make my guys feel special. Great idea.

      Yes Val! I think a mug with a picture of you and the boys would be cute for your husband. An extra Father’s Day gift, maybe? 😀

    I love these!! It hadn’t really occured to me to use TBT photos in this way – DUH! I’m thinking that I could easily use a new cover for my iPod and then I’d have something cute to look at while at the gym. Love it! Thanks!

      An iPod cover would be really cool! I can’t wait to see which picture you choose 😉

    TBT is the best! I love reflecting on the past and looking at old photos and videos. It’s therapeutic no matter what type of family life you had.

    I’d love to create some gifts for my friend from her wedding last weekend!

      That would be an awesome belated wedding gift! Or if you can stand to wait, a great 1st anniversary present 😀

    Great ideas! I have many photos that I LOVE when my boys were younger. I think it would be fun to do a phone case…I need a new one anyway 🙂

      Yes! I think the photo case too fun. Plus, if you can’t decide on which pictures to use, you can create a few different covers and use them throughout the year :D.
