Show Girl

With her flouncy and frilly brightly colored ruffles, this little sun-loving beauty reminded me of a Las Vegas Show Girl...maybe a bit like Tammy E? :) :)

Thanks everyone for your comments - much appreciated! :)

And Ms. Vegas...WOW! Can I call 'em or can I call 'em?? :) Ever see those cartoon characters that when they see a good-lookin' woman, their eyes bug out on stalks and there's a big "Boing" written above their heads?? Well, with my husband, brother-in-law and nephew present here today when I opened this up - I swear I heard "BOINGS" bouncing off the walls!! LOL! (and that kind of beauty doesn't fade, Ms. Tammy!)

A very lovely and spirited floral, Val! It does indeed look flouncy and frilly and oh so girly-girly! Light is beautiful, too. I hope your Mom is still holding her own...give her a big hug from me. Your macros are so inspiring - I was trying some the other day and find it the most challenging of all photography. Congrats on another very artistic finalist!

A big TEXAS CONGRATULATIONS Val on this wonderful gold winner. I have been traveling in Canada for 2-3 weeks, broke computer first day, now in Apple store being repaired so I hope to get back to BP in a week or two. Again eye candy gets the gold. Congrats my friend.
