stunning sequins

Happy July friends.  Hope everyone is doing well... especially those on summer vacation!  I'm doing the opposite right now - celebrating a new job!  It's in a new field for me, away from marine science, but I will still be doing research in a really great work environment.  Really excited to have my long unemployment stint finally come to a close.

Over at Seize the Birthday, we are playing with sequins for our option/topping this week.  Sequins scare me a bit, to tell you the truth.  I managed to throw a few on here and think it looks ok.  Hope you do too.

Hope you can play along with us this week!  All the details on how to play along are on the blog.  Give some love to our new Surprise Party Guest, Trina Pham, and the rest of the team.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a terrific day and a wonderful weekend.

  8. I think your use of sequins is perfect Glenda, even if they scare you, lol! Awesome background, too.

  9. Love the splatters and swirls... and the sequins! It sometimes seems placing sequins in just the right spots can be more work than making the rest of the card. :P
