SNSDC61 ~ Sun & Sand

Hello Friends & Followers!  I am not even close to settled but I missed playing in the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenges so I purchased some things at the local Hobby Lobby so I could play along this week.  This week's challenge is the theme 'Sun & Sand' so I colored Cocoa & Cookie's Sandcastle Digi Image up with my Bic Mark-Its (they are good in a pinch, but I still prefer my Copics), cut it out with a circle Nestabilities die and added it to one of the clear fill-it-yourself- ornaments with some sand and holographic glitter with the pretty little stars in it along with a few shells to create this beach-themed ornament:
(Sorry, my photo cube is packed up and buried somewhere - I had to improvise).  You know how you imagine something in your head and it looks perfect - and then you go to make it...  yeah... that is what happened here.  I didn't think the sand and glitter would stick to the inside of the ornament, making the image more difficult to see, and shaking it to try to get the shells in more photogenic positions just made it worse.  And the image kept shifting and I had to dig it out with tweezers, LOL, I think the next time I try one of these I will use that shred instead - like they use in gift baskets?  This creation also satisfies the requirements for the following additional challenges as well:
     I hope you will play along with our Sweet 'n Sassy 'Sun & Sand' Digi Challenge - any digi will do!  Be sure to stop by the blog and see what my other teamies created for the challenge as well.  Don't forget - every card you make during the month of July is an entry to win 3 SNSS digis of your choice, so enter often to increase your chances to win!
     Have a great weekend everyone!
