Happy St. Patrick's Day.  I adore all things Ireland ever since my aunt and I took an enchanted trip to the lovely isle in 1998.  We spent two weeks on horseback riding through the countryside and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.  My Ireland photos are part of the reason I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator today.  My photos languished in the packets for about a year and when I was invited to a Creative Memories party by one of my daughter's classmates, I went and was hooked on the entire art and process of scrapbooking.  I was inspired to create my first scrapbook and it was my Ireland book that I was working on in the beginning.  Shortly, thereafter, I was also invited to a Stampin' Up! party where I met my upline, Connie Tumm.  Oh boy, the endless possibilities and who knew you could STAMP in your scrapbook!  I bought everything SU made that was even slightly Irish.  This amateur page was done simply by rolling the wheels on the background page and matting the photos in Glorious Green.  While it's pretty basic, I'm still pretty proud of my Ireland book!


So today, raise a glass of Guinness or Root-beer, whatever your inclination and celebrate the redheads amongst us!  Myself, included, although I'm graying at an amazing rate.  I've created a little card for you using the Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp in the Occasions Mini catalog.  IMG_7240
Sweet and simple.

Note the refills next to the card?  A mischievous little leprechaun visited our home last night.  He brought the bike in and set it on the table, he hung shoes on Daddy's new whitetail mount's antlers and gave it a bike helmet.  He threw bananas around the living room.  (Pathetic that the leprechaun needed to pick up the house first so that the mischief would be noticed!) and then he turned all the toilet water and the coffee in the pot,  green with his magic Stampin' Up! refills.  Naughty little fellow!  And worst of all….he didn't leave any gold coins, chocolate or otherwise! 

Enjoy the day and leave a comment telling me how YOU celebrated today.
