My ACOT second Aug reveal...


While I keep my bigger sea shells that I have gathered over the years in a large bowel out on the lanai, I have wanted a special place to keep some beachy 'treasures' that are extra special to me (the shell I gathered the first time my honey and I went to the beach together, a float I bought my first visit, etc) some place special. These Creative Imagination papers, Beach Cottage, (IOD) were perfect for helping me to make a treasure box for my treasures out of a discarded cigar box.




I have posted a step by step on how to do this treasure box at A Cherry on Top right here.

As always, thank you so much for looking and all comments are appreciated!

Very pretty Jules! I love the "breezy" feel this has. My daughter would love something like this for her Florida shell collection.
