Thank you all very much for stopping by and leaving comments on my Blog Soup. This has been such an adventure for me really.  I remember the day I received my soup mix and was in AWE at all the beads I had at my disposal...LOL  I still have a small handful left and hope to make more earrings out of them.  Also a special THANKS for all those who are now following my blog.  I appreciate it very much...

Bead Soup Revealed! More Pics

I put up more pictures on my Flickr you can take a look at. They are much larger and you can see how beautiful the beads really are.  Again, THANKS to Collette, my soup partner, for ALL of the beautiful beads!  I dont usually create jewelry with larger beads, I tend to use smaller ones, so this was a little challenging as to what I was going to create.  I really enjoyed this challenge and am so glad I came across Lori Anderson's website.  THANK YOU are awesome!!!

Bead Soup Revealed!

FYI, I have to mention this....I created this simple layout using My Memories Suite 2.  It is a fairly new program that I just started using and absolutely love it.  They have a ton of pre-made templates and all you have to do is insert the picture...move it to the spot you want it on...and automatically puts it into the spot.  You move the picture around until you like the position then move on to the next simple in creating a great collage of your work.  I have been using Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro..even Elements, and this is probably the easiest program to do a quick layout.  Fun stuff...
