 While walking our dog I found this lovely little walnut shell.  Isn't it just perfect?  I want to go back and get a whole bucket of them!  I have so many ideas of things to make with them.  During my frenzy of blurting out all of my thoughts Dillon mentioned it would probably make a nice stamp.  Genius!

Using acrylic paint,
I gave it a shot in The Book on Love.
I probably should have used a dremel to make the surface a little bit more even, oh well.
The first page is officially started!  The white paint smudged and it's driving me batty so I plan on doing a lot more with it.  Updated pics to come.

Thanks for looking and have a craftastic day.
