Well, when I think of "hot" I think "beach"

I made this adorable beach shack explosion box.

Here is the outside of the box.
I made it look like a beach shack.


the roof

I trimed all the edges with wave patterns that I made and cut out with my new Black Cat.

I could not resist adding a 3D sandcastle in the center.

Your next stop is Sherry at

Thank you for coming.
Hope you enjoy looking at all the other creations by these talented women.
