Happy Fourth of July!

Trying to get a good picture of microbeads is a daunting experience.  You can't get the full effect unless you see them in person.  It reminds me of watching fireworks on TV - it's just not the same.  Pals Paper Arts inspiration photo is wonderful but it makes me want to see the real thing.  So tomorrow morning I am out of here and headed to the lake where I hope to see some fireworks first hand before the weekend is over!



Oh yes one of these chairs definitely has my name all over it!

Gosh, Linda, I hope it's not the one that's on fire!?!?

I kid ...

LOVE your card and I really love the fireworks effect you created ... really very beautiful ... and the difficulty factor on that is high! Also admiring the way you used the tab punch here ... very cool!

Have a safe and very happy holiday weekend!

Nice interpretation Linda! Great use of the Round Tab. AND I've never used the micro-beads before. Your technique certainly has me wanting to! Great job!

Great job with the microbeads Linda! I purchased some a while back and still haven't been able to figure out what to do with them! Happy 4th!
