Here is one of my [two] 4th of July Digis. I came up with this digi last week while watching Unwrapped [my 'go-to-sleep' program] on Food Network. It was an ALL ice cream show that night, and since my favorite dessert [well, one of my favorite sweets] it woke me up! Marc had an ice cream bar like Digi #97 and it was my AAAH--HA moment because I needed another 4th of July design. He said the red section was 'strawberry' flavor, the white 'watermelon' and the blue 'raspberry'. And, "Fancy Flag Fruit Ice Cream Bar" became the name of Digi #97.
