The Scrappin' O' the Green!

Today's the day for a new challenge at Lasting Memories, "Green and White". Now this was truly a challenge for me- to step out of my usual kraft and blue box?? How would it be possible for me to scrap green? Well, I gave it a go, and I'm pretty happy with it!

It helped that I had a couple of adorable pics of my son in this green shirt (it seems that he wears this shirt a LOT, I think I scrapped another layout with this same shirt a few days ago!). I also had this pretty cute felt shamrock I picked up for $1 at Joann fabrics, wasn't sure how I would use it, but for $1 who could pass it up right?

A few fun things to note about this layout: 1-My kraft circle I freeform cut and inked up, and then dresses up the edges with white circles adhered to the back to look like scallops. 2-I wanted the title to be printed directly onto the background paper, but since I don't have a 12x12 printer, I trimmed my CS to 8.5" and ran through the printer. I then pieced the 2 pieces of green CS together with good old scotch tape and covered the seam with a black scalloped border. 3- And speaking of that title, what do you think of it? If it's something you'd like to use, here's the jpeg as my little St. Patty's Day gift to you!

I hope you'll head on over to Lasting Memories and see what fabulous green and white layouts are up there for inspiration from the rest of the DT. Be sure to link up your take on the challenge for your chance to win a lucky prize pack from DT member Leisa! =)T
