Melting on Mojo Monday

It's going to be another hot, humid day.  Not exactly my favorite.  I suppose I'll just have to crank up the AC, stay in the house, and spend the day playing with paper. 

First project.... Mojo Monday!

This Bugaboo digi turtle is ready for July 4th.  
 If you want a turtle for any occasion, Bugaboo has one!
All the decorated shells remind me of the hermit crabs and the fancy decorated shells they sell on the boardwalk at the beach.  Many, many years ago my older brother bought one to take to college as a pet.  The housekeeper in the dorm (They had housekeepers and laundry service for the boys many, many years ago, before women's lib.) was not too thrilled with the unusual smell in the room when the creature expired.

Today's challenges:
Come and Get It Challenge - Cute Animals  
Cut It Up Challenge #73 - Stars and Stripes
