Happy St Patrick's Day

I've never made a St Patrick's Day card before but I was seeing my Irish mother-in-law today and she usually gives us a piece of shamrock so I set about creating a card. I downloaded a shamrock photo from the web and used some green buttons and green Making Memories Cheeky Shimmer letters. Simplicity itself.

I'm still creating scrapbook layouts for "The story of my life," although I'm not really doing it in sequence now. This layout features a photo from when I was 20. It was already in black & white so no need to convert it. The recurrent theme for this album is that all the photos are b&w.

I used the gorgeous Basic Grey Two Scoops for the first time plus some cranberry acrylic paint and glitter. Chipboard letters by K&Co.
