You never know..

where you might find a 12x12 reference! I found this at the roadside fireworks stand while we were visiting Illinois.
I think it's so funny that the packaging really does include Kristin's color palette from our Kilauea challenge: red, orange, chartreuse, black and grays.

In fact, there was a whole box of "volcanic vortex" fireworks, each named for a different volcano. Ultimately, we chose Mt Etna.
When Claire was about three months old, Jeff was on a six-month deployment with the US Navy in Sicily. Baby Claire and I went to visit him and we enjoyed many wonderful Italian adventures including hiking up Mt Etna. (That was before digital cameras, otherwise, I'd include a photo.)
