There is No Greater Gift than Today...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day... to those who celebrate ...
2005...Chicago River dyed Green to participate this special ocassion... Totally awesome... !! (sad had to leave my little Matin home and he was less than a year...for 2 weeks!!)

This layout is inspired by Kraft-it-Up March Challenge.... and this layout too was also inspired by Yvonne Yam's guest blogger, Michelle Bertuzzi...Get-out-of-your-comfort-zone...which I think I did...especially using those (1)colors...which is not me at all...I had a hard time... to be honest it took 2 days just to finish this layout... I have been keeping this (2)pp from lilybee design since last year... when I received the PP from my nook kits(last year)... I was like... how the heck am I going to use this!!!...(3) Entwine those charcoal twine around my layout and also centralised  them...(4) Using stamps as embellies...which I think is my 1st time (5) Using only 2 manufacturer for PP (Lilybee Design & little Cosmo Cricket from my stash ...woohoo...what a list eh!!!...
 
 




Papers: Kraft, Lilybee Design & Cosmo Cricket
Others: Lawn Fawn Stamps, Tattered Angels Glimmermist Scarlett, AC Rosette, Hessian, Spellbinders Die Film Strip, JayGee Nook Charcoal Twine, OA Alpha Stickers

Don't forget I have not ONE but 3 BLOGiveaways qualify...easy..leave a comment and be a FOLLOWER(I see some of you are still NOT especially the regulars one too :(  ...anyway...check-it-out HERE....

And don't forget to join the fun with US over at Scrapbookers Anonymous...easy peazy...March challenge is to use at least 7 flowers on your layout, the premade kind, not homemade.... the idea is to dig into your STASH and use the flowers you've been meaning to use but for some reason have not.. think outside the box... and of course the more the BETTER.......hugs...

Thank you ladies for all your love and sweet comments!! It really means the world to ME!
Sending lots of love and hugs to you all!!...Big Hugs...xoxo
