Skittles Winner & A Watermelon Box

Hello Friends,

My good buddy Rhonda at Scrap Happens is having a challenge on her blog.  The prize is one of her fantastic albums.  If you have never won one of Rhonda's albums, get over there and take a look.  This gal is amazing!  I have been lucky enough to win several times and she made me an album for my birthday last year that I just treasure.  So I had to make something for this challenge.  The theme is "Fourth of July, Summertime".  When I was a child growing up, I remember having watermelon on the 4th of July.  It seems to me like we always had it.  When I married and told my husband we had to have watermelon on the 4th, he looked at me like I was crazy.  Do you have watermelon on the 4th of July?  Do you have some other family tradition that just has to happen on the 4th?

I decided for the challenge to make this cute watermelon box from SVG Cuts.  It is from the Fruity Fiesta SVG Kit.  I have to admit, I struggled a little to get this put together, but I think it is good for my aging brain cells to struggle sometimes.

Of course I had to add some "watermelon skittles" look at how they reflect the light, so pretty.

I had some watermelon paper so I used that to line the inside of the box.

I don't know why my pictures turned out kinda shadowy, sorry.
