All compliments for arrangement should go to Lisa :) It's one of the included.

Anybody want to beta this set in the next 3-5 days? I'm finishing thumbs today.

Ahhhh yes, I remember seeing that option, though I haven't had a need to do so.

These look great! The yellow is a bit dull in the center, though. Is there a way to brighten that up. If I recall correctly, the centers of the flowers where all that geometry smashes together created dark shadows on render. At the time, (I forget what year these were made but it was quite some time ago) the only way I could solve the problem was to add an ambient glow to the flower to knock out that shadow.

Well, I purchased them in 2009, but I don't recall if they were brand new when I got them, so they could be older.
