A Lucky Day

Today is St. Patrick's Day. A day many people consider to be lucky. I don't know if I would consider it luck, but I do consider myself a pretty lucky girl  probably not for reasons that many would consider lucky. I explain it all in the layout I made a few years ago.

"Yep, I am one lucky lady. I may not have the job that I truly want, but I have so many other things to be thankful for...my loving supportive family, a fabulous group of friends, a faithful dog who loves me no matter what, my health, a hobby that I both love and am talented at, and most importantly my faith in Christ. These are just a few of the blessings in my life that make me truly lucky. "

The journaling on this layout that I made in 2010 is still as true today as it was then. I am truly blessed and thankful for my life. 

This layout is also being featured over on Paper Crafting Studio today. You can check it out and learn how I made the shamrocks.   Come check it out. http://papercraftingstudio.com/904/lucky-me-layout/

Since it is St, Patrick's Day I thought I would share one more layout I made. It is based off a sketch from the incredibly talented Valerie Salmon from one of her Got Sketch classes. 

These pics are of my sweet dog Bailey from a few years ago. The patterned papers are the same ones I used in the layout above and are from Little Yellow Bicycle's "Lucky me" collection from a few years ago. It's one of my favorites and I only have bits and pieces left of it now. And the title is cut using the Silhouette Cameo...love the intricacy of the cuts on the word lucky. 

So my challenge to you is to scrap something related to the topic of St. Patrick's Day or luck. You never know where it might take you.
