Hi everyone, Eileen Hull here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I hope you are keeping cool this week! Temps in Virginia were at 100 degrees and I headed to the ocean with a couple of crafty friends.

I think it would be really cool to add these to a frame, shadowbox or even add to a tag or card if the shell was small enough. The…
