Well, I had one more project already completed and ready to grout, so I did that tonight. It was hard to do the edges, though, the grout didn't want to stay put! Still have some clean up to do. My charcoal colored grout was a little darker this time, still experimenting with the liquid dye.

On the lid, look closely, you can still see the red from the snowmen painted underneath! I didn't think that would show, oh well.

Oh, I love your little tropical box! I'm going to keep a copy of the picture if I can for inspiration. It's really great.

GC - you're making that up - about still seeing red. Don't see a thing but a beautifully mosaiced box. Don't know how you packed so much detail in that scene. It makes me still want to try my PV sunset scene. I haven't taken it off the list yet. Wonderful work, girlie.

Beautiful scene and I love the pattern on the top of it. You did a wonderful job on it.

Thanks, everyone, I'm glad you like it. I had no idea it would be a beach-scene box when I started it. Pina coladas, huh? Sounds good!

Texas: My husband loves Bob Marley....DH used to be in a reggae band, he was the only guy in the band without dreadlocks! Don't worry, be happy... wait, that's Bobby McFarrin, oh well, still reggae. I see a new mosaic idea forming...might have to learn to make those word tiles lovemosaics is making!

Very very nice, love that box. You are on a roll and doing fantastic, sure you haven't been doing mosaics for a long time?? LOL, very tropical and pina colada
