Hi, this is my first post, I'm having a hard time so I hope this works and is in the right place.  I made this mosaic for my parents 40th anniversary.  It is 2'x2' and covered with hand placed pebbles.  The tree contains 40 'leaves' representing the 40 years together.  They are 'planting' in their yard in the spring.

So I'm replying to my own post b/c I don't know how to edit and add a link the the last one.  Here is a pic of the stone up close and personal to show the individual placement of each pebble.

What a cool idea. What did you "glue" with?

I used E6000 to glue the pebbles on, then I used a outdoor grout, and finally sealed it with grout sealer.  I wasn't really sure what to use I just tried to use everything that said it was safe for outdoor use.  Although they haven't actually put it in the ground yet, my parents have left it outside all winter and it is holding up great!  Thanks for the nice comments.
