Lucky Layout

Do you feel Lucky? I know I feel like one "Lucky Lady" when I look at these pics of my wonderful hubby and 2 amazing boys!

I wanted to make a special layout for these pics so I grabbed my CTMH idea books to pick out the perfect layout.  For page one, I grabbed these green papers and inked the edges using CTMH New England Ivy.  Letters are cut using Lyrical Letters and the Cricut. I found these fun little shamrock bling in my stash.

This is page two and I added this fun digital image from The Stamping Boutique called Horseshoe which is colored with Copics (E00, G14/19, Y15/17/21, C5/C7. YR04/07, B24/29, R27/59, 100, blender).  I used a gold gel pen to add some sparkle to the horseshoe and gold. The image was cut out using my scalloped Nesties. The scallop along bottom of layout is cut using Accent Essentials and the Cricut.

I am entering this layout in the following challenges:

Challenge Masters- One Little Word- Luck
Little Red Wagon-St. Patty's Day green
Sisterhood of Crafters- St. Patty's Day
Stamping Vacation- use anything from March
AI Factory- Luck of the Irish

Stamp Insanity- anything goes+ pop of green
