Melissa and her magic camel Peanut You Design it; We Make It!, designed by Julia

Watch as Catherine Ayers brings Julia's design to life in this You Design It; We Make It! demonstration. Julia says her design is "about a poor girl named Melissa and her magic camel, Peanut. He can make anything out of sand! The little dots on him are glitter and the pink on his back is his saddle for Melissa to ride on him. Together, the two help people who need things by making them out of sand. They are a very good team!" See the final sculpture at 1:41:31.
