He is adorable Oddie. Love your creativity, and your projects always turn out looking so professional. The pictures you show us look great too--how do you get that "snow" effect in front of the pic? Very nice work. Luvs

You are very talented - and so is your DH! He is just adorable - and your candle is awesome!

I also have noticed how nice your photo's are. What program do you use? I use Digital Image Suite from Microsoft.

Thanks everyone, I will pass the compliments on to hubby, I have to brag on him as he can do just about everything, wouldnt trade him for anyone. I have several photo programs photo explosion,photoshop elements 2 and a trial version of picture it that I love, seldom use photoshop as its just to much for me. I use the printshop alot and have greeting card programs also.
thanks agine

Oddie,

You asked how long the $ store tealights last. I haven't used them, but when I was a PartyLite rep, our tealights lasted 2-3 hours of continuous burning.

HTH,

Allison
