Top of the mornin' to yah...
It will be noon here soon so I can't say top of the mornin' for long. I guess it depends on what part of the world you're in. Anyway, Happy St. Patrick's day!!! I'm more than a wee bit o' Irish. My mom is 100 percent and my dad was about 50 percent so I guess that makes me 75 percent Irish. We are not celebrating in any particular way today. I try to keep artificial colors and ingredients OUT of my family's food so I wont be dyeing anything green today. We just got done with a whole slew of birthday parties so I'm not up to organizing anything else fun right now. Sometimes my mom's side of the family gets together to celebrate St.Patrick's day. I guess they didn't this year. Either that or I wasn't invited. hehe. ;)
Today I wanted to share another scrapbook page layout with you. I started with a 6 x6 page of my daughter and our cat Lucy. You may recognize this photo from an 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook page I did earlier. I submitted that one for a contest. Didn't win though. I wanted to make a full page spread with all 3 kids and our cat. The heart on the first page is done with the onboard chipboard heart. I dabbed it with Regal Rose craft ink and then poured irridescent ice embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. An easy but effective embellishment. It's hard to tell from the pictures but the page is done in Soft Sky backed by Basic Black and with Regal Rose accents. I love how these colors look together with the black and white photos. Did you notice on the second page that I used one of the carousel notes for my journaling block? I took a ruler and drew the lines on with my basic black marker. The designer paper is the Soft Sky monochromatic paper and the ribbon is the 5/8" regal rose grosgrain ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear how or if you are celebrating St. Patty's day!
