Secondly, do you have any suggestions as to what alpha to use? I was thinking of using something like Princess Power or something like that.
Appreciate any help you can give me. Just thought I better get going so I can use that cool coupon in the blog.

Don't know if this is EXACTLY what you're after, but I remember Cheri Thieleke wrote a good article in the July 4th newsletter about making a "sparkler" trail on her LO. It might be able to work for your magic wand trail. It definitely has sparkle to it!
Check out this link on the Blog:
Scroll thru the newsletter and get to the 4th of July article, then keep scrolling b/c it's her second LO that has the sparkler trail. She mentions two products that she used: Brush Set: Wisp Alpha Super Biggie and ScrapSimple Tools – Styles: Glow 8501 Biggie.
See if her LO looks like what you want.
Hope that helps!

ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Star Bright 5001
And there are some already made sparkles too... Star Bright Embellishment Biggie

The Sparkle Trails are .png files and when I try to use them the sparkles are dark grey. A couple of other threads mention that they might be brushes and maybe the user should apply an action when someone else had the same problem, but they seem to be embellishments. I did read the Fourth of July link and it just mentions what products she used, not how she did it. Anyone out there have an insight? I would love to be able to use them.
I'm not familiar with the Sparkle Trails and they appear to be retired. However, Spellbound is definitely a brush. Many designers include the PNG file as well as the brush file. You can place the PNG directly on your layout like you would an embellishment, however you'll need to do something to it if you want something other than black. You can apply a style like April was talking about. You can clip a paper to it. You could do a pattern overlay or a color overlay. Keep asking questions. We're more than willing to keep helping.
