Sand on a Layout???

This is a layout I did recently from a short business trip to Florida. I decided to cover my little sand castle with some sand a dear friend brought me back from Hawaii years ago (yes, I'm crazy for hauling this sand around with me all these years, but look it paid off!) I tried cutting the sand castle from sand paper first. That worked ok, although it messed up my Cricut blade. The sand paper just lacked that certain something I was looking for. After I cut the sand castle out of a light brown I ran it through my Xyron upside down and then sprinkled my sand over it, Ta-Da! A sand castle! I also had just recently purchased some little glass like adhesive tiles from Michael's, they were the finishing touch I think. The word Florida was cut with Lyrical Letters and welded in Design Studio. The other cuts on these pages were made with Create a Critter. I also covered the little red crab with Tim Holtz Fried Brick Distressed Embossing Power. He's now rough and bumpy.

Hope you have a great weekend!
