Luck of the Irish!

This is another page that we made at my CMC's crop on Friday. We were having a green St. Patrick's Day theme for the night so I designed and taught this page in honor of that!

All of the green papers are CM, the die cut scroll corners are another Cuttlebug die. The stamp saying is an Irish Blessing and is from Eureka Stamps. It is my favorite blessing and I have it framed and hanging as you go out my front door. The four leaf clover stamp is from the $1 bargain bin at Michael's. I used it to randomly stamp and gold heat emboss the serendipity squares.

Serendipity squares are really nice page accents if you do not have a particular theme for your page. Some times what you are scrapping doesn't fit into those little categories of things that scrapbook companies like to make embellishments. With serendipity squares you just pull colors out of your photos. The hands on experience of tearing and pasting, stamping and embossing, and cutting and matting is so much fun. It kind of takes you back to elementary school art class! I love it!

The blessing goes like this...

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I love that Shamrock stamp! I wish I would've seen that in the dollar bin! I bought some cute acrylic stamp sets for $1 in that bin today at Michaels. They are made by Studio G and are really nice. Go check them out! I'm looking forward to the Camp Harmony Crop.
