Shades of Green!

March Madness??Irish Blessings?? St. Patty's Day??
Hey All! We are continuing with our monthly "blog party"! We ladies at Just A Few Friends are at it again! This month we have created our projects using green and/or St. Patricks day. There is a collective giveaway posted on Elsa's blog http://justafewdesigns.blogspot.com/ so to qualify you will need to visit all the dens and leave a friendly comment, then link one of your favorite handmade projects ...a winner will be selected on April 7.

My project is a 12x12 page layout and the title really fits me at this time. It's not about being LUCKY, It's about being BLESSED. I hope you all enjoy the projects that we have created to share and I hope it inspires you to CREATE! I have made a challenge to myself to do more 12x12 page layouts this year and intend to do 1 page per week at least. I am a little behind but will be catching up in my next project of a beach album for my family. lol

I am also using my crocheted lace flowers and shamrock in more of my creations so I hope you all enjoy!

UPDATE: I changed my plans for this page layout. I put a picture of my baptism when I was 11 years old. I am also using this page for a "Lasting Memories" Scrapbook layout challenge.

  9. WOW Suzie, what a beautiful layout. I do hope that I read this contest right when she said link something to her sight that I love and that one of you all have inspired me to do. I'm hoping that it wasn't suppose to be a 12 x 12 layout. I loved your layout by the way it was gorgeous and I look forward to sitting down and going through your entire blog sometime.
    Thanks again for letting me look around a bit and have a great day!

  17. Love the layout with your baptism in it. The colors are so pretty and your crochet flowers are to die for. I must learn to make these, saw that one of the other ladies crochet flowers and four leaf clovers. How creative and talented you are. Thanks for the eye candy and chance to win. I must share that I was baptized in Saratoga Lake in Upstate Ny and how powerful it was. Amen!!!!
