Happy St. Patrick's!

Well, I finally decided I'd better get busy working on some Irish creations for St. Patrick's Day! Since I claim to be an Irish Angel and all!
I made this journal using a notebook purchased from Target. I covered the front with the shimmery Green Day paper from Reminisce. I added some coordinating cardstock stickers to the front, and used ribbon GALLORE that I had purchased quite a while back from Michaels. I will probably use it on my upcoming travels to Ireland!

I created this triangular card using a template from my stamping friend, Becky. We used this back in October to make an adorable Halloween card. I used a Green Day cardstock shamrock sticker inside. The lips are from an old SU set "Kiss Me" that I still LOVE. I stamped them in pink and embossed with clear powder. The shaker contains little shamrock confetti that I picked up at a party store yesterday. The ribbon is a little long, but worked out perfectly once knotted claiming, "kiss me, I'm Irish".

I am so Lucky! This layout was cased from SCS. I've noticed it popping up more and more. I again used various Green Day papers for the squares in the lower right hand corner. The shamrock is a little jewel that I also picked up from a party store yesterday. Simple, but cute!

The day just wouldn't be complete without a little gift for the gals in the office. I happened to run across some inexpensive shamrock bracelets in the party store, so I grabbed several. The tins are from the wedding favor section at Target. I adorned each tin with a strip of Green Day paper and more Michaels ribbon. I scalloped punched coordinating green cardstock for the tops of the tins and placed them using foam adhesive. The top is adorned with one of the shamrock jewels from the party store.

Thanks for looking! Happy St. Patrick's!
