Prize Winners & A Beach Pail

Hello My Friends,

Wow, talk about cutting it close.  I am trying to enter Die Cutting Diva's challenges every week.  I love the exercise that cutting and putting together something on my Cameo Silhouette gives my brain.  Well, this week, I am about 4 hours away from their closing for the week.  Looks like they have lots of really fantastic entries too.  So here is my project for today.  It is from SVG Cuts Wet n' Wild.

I made a few changes to this SVG Cut.  It had cut out eyes for the crab, I used google eyes.  I love using google eyes and use them whenever I can.  I also made this sand castle tag from the Silhouette Store and added it to the top.

Here is another view from the side.  The reason I am showing you this is that I used a little flower brad from Lost & Found that I really like.
