Exploring Cricut St. Patricks Day & Shamrocks

Happy St. Patrick's day! The challenge at Exploring Cricut this week is to make a St. Patricks day project with a Shamrock, so here is my project-



Here is what I did-
  1. Designer Calendar-cut March out at 2 1/2". Colorbok green glitter paper and Wausau dark green shimmer paper (also used on shamrocks and leprechauns).
  2. Simply Charmed-cut Leprechauns at 2 1/2". Used scraps of light beige, pink, orange and yellow.
  3. Give a Hoot-cut shamrocks at 3 1/2".
  4. Unknown background paper, Creative Memories light green mats.
  5. Adhere everything and insert into frame for calendar.


I'm so glad that I'm doing this-it's making me notice what's going on each month, and I'm taking advantage of the photo opportunities to document life!

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
