July Tag for Tim's 12 tags of 2014

Every month I get excited for the 1st of the month because Tim presents us with another tag full of wonderful techniques for us to try.  It is kind of a mini Christmas anticipation feeling, like being a kid all over again!  I love it!

This month was no different and you can see his step by step instructions here.

Just over a year ago, I was gifted a whole lot of Sizzix dies and paper storage cubes etc by a wonderful lady who has since become a dear friend.  Some of the dies she gave me were perfect for this tag!  How AWESOME is that?
I really built up my "sand" to give the shells something to stick into and to add depth to the bottom of the tag.
 I did not have distress embossing powder in the right colour for the starfish, so I used distress glitter instead.
It is winter here, so this little guy took a long time to crack!  But crack he did and oh so nicely!  In the photo below you can see his depth too as I cut him from foam board. 
Roll on 1st of August...I am ready for the next mini Christmas feeling!
