Keepsake Shadow box tray….

Hello everyone ! I hope you are having a great week. 

Before we left I was in a ‘vacation frame of mind’ and so here is yet another beachy craft that I hope you will love as much as I do.  

I believe that memories are built and kept in your heart but sometimes a little keepsake of a special time and place brings right back every time you see it.
 Like many of you, we like to bring beautiful shells of places where we have been and I knew this time would not be different. But I wanted to display them in a special way…

I used this little Shadowbox tray from Canvas Corp 
who now carry 7gypsies products. 

It’s beautifully finished with black paint and  little distressed edges.
 But it didn’t fit my decor or the theme. So I used some acrylic paint to change it up. 

I then cut and pasted a dictionary page and glued some shells .  
So easy and so pretty.

I did something similar last year for my summer mantel  using regular picture frames. But I like the various compartments of the shadow box. 

Well my lovely friends, thank you once again for visiting. I hope you enjoyed your time here. 
See you very soon…xo

much love,
