Shell collection


Jen and I collected shells for my girl when we were at Siesta Key Beach. Today I helped my girl make a craft with them. I took an old picture frame that had a broken glass and glued down the background paper she chose to the cardboard backing of the frame. Then, my girl layed out the shells just as she wanted them. Since there was no glass she just worked within the borders of the frame itself. I then helped her glued down the shells. What you see is exactly how she laid it out herself. I think it came out rather cute and will look great in our seashell themed bathroom!

That is awesome! Abby collects shells, too, and we could easily do this! Thanks for the idea! :)

Very nice all around--from collecting the shells to doing a craft with them with your daughter to displaying them. Very cool and purdy too!
