Hey there everyone and happy St Patrick's Day....I would like to say welcome to the prides "Shades of Green" prowl in honour of this day!!  we are also having a huge HUGE giveaway....some blog candy!! and once again it is gonna work "hop" style. To enter in our giveaway all you have to do is visit all my Sista Lionesses and leave them some love in the form of a comment and then all that is left to do is link one of your own purrrrfect creations or hand made St Patricks Day projects using Mr Linky over at Elsa's Den, But guys, make sure you do this before April 7th as Elsa will be announcing winners then.  You will find everyone's scrappy dens listed at the end of this post....have fun and enjoy our mini hop and GOOD LUCK to you all!!  

My projects this month are not your usual, run of the mill  St Patrick's Day projects.  You see on this day five years ago...Bazz 'n' I were St Paddy's Day always has a different reason for celebrating!! For us it is a day filled with love and fun .....Therefore I wanted my projects to reflect on our day and celebrate the five wonderful years we have spent together!1  A bit mushy I know, but hey, I can't help it...I am so in love with my man!

My first project is a layout....I cannot believe how long it has been since I completed a 12x12 layout....I used to do these all the time once, but now find myself totally obsessed with mini's and other areas of paper crafting.  It was really great to get back to where my addiction first started.  I also can't believe how quickly this layout was done...must've been record time for me. I had it all done in one afternoon.

 Sticking to our "Shades of Green" theme, I have used the K-Ology "Peabody" Scrap Pad to go by K&Company.  I love this pad, comes with some really lovely patterned papers and loads of green with just a hint of pink to brighten things up.  I have used my "vines" that I created, some recollection bling which I cut up and strategically placed within my vine; a flower that I received in a RAK and the paper trim is one I cut from the scrap pad on my cricut.  I have also included some sewing around the edge of my bracket shape and also to keep my paper ruffled trim together.

My second project is an altered paper mache box.   You know the ones that you can pick up at just about every dollar shop or cheap craft outlet. Again I have used the K-Ology scrap pad to go and some of the off cuts and scraps leftover from the layout.  The box is only small...about 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" so there was not a lot of scraproom .  However I created a small 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" concertina mini to fit inside.  It was just big enough to hold some mini wallet size prints and a little embellishing.

Well everyone that is my projects for our St Patricks Day mini hop....Now leave a comment on all of our projects to be eligible for the candy Elsa is giving away...and you must also use Mr Linky on Elsa's blog and link to your project!  Please don't forget to drop into the other Lionesses Dens of Scrappiness to see what purrrrfect creations they have for you all on this green green day! and remember people's .....
