Hello everyone,  im excited to be part of  the The St Paddy’s Day  BLOG HOP (3/17 @ 11:30pm to 3/19 @ 12:00am Eastern ST by Deeas this is my second hop line up participation-  I hope i get it right !

Thank you to Becky for inviting me and Denise for letting me be a part of this hop where i am among some very talented crafty ladies as i am honoured to be included – especially since this is only my second hop participation.

 If you have arrived here from Cheryls blog  

then you are on the right track. If you are here just browsing around (thank you), but would like to “hop”  along with us then please start at

The theme for this hop is obviously St Patricks day and our projects had to include a 3 leaf clover as element. Here is my scrapbook project on one of my cats called Lucky – appropriate for a 3 leaf clover theme.

 have used 2 sheets of patterened paper from  DCWV latte paper stack and sliced the striped one in sections. I have printed off the photo of  Lucky and matted and layered it  on some co-ordinating card stock then attached it onto my papers.  The green wheel like edging is from a sticky ribbon pack from K&CO which i thought went well with the colour scheme. Next i used the Accent Essentials circuit cart and cut out some fancy flourishes in 4 and 3 inch sizes. I then used the Teardrops cart and cut out Lucky’s name.  I used a 3 leaf clover digi stamp which i coloured in copic markers and glazed it using ranger glossy accents. 
Assembled all the elements on the page and then added some purple pearl bling onto parts of the flourishes – just because i could!!!

So there we have it – my blog hop entry – hope you like it and id appreciate it if you could leave me a comment. If you do like what you see and wanna see more then id love it if you would become one of my ever growing list of followers. I have blog candy giveaways on a regular basis and I also run 2  challenges a month  for you to take part in.

Now back to the hop - there are a lot of talented crafty women on this hop and I hope you enjoy looking through their blog entries.  So now please hop on over to which is the next blog in the hop where you will find another lovely creation from Jessica.                    

Here is the hop line-up in case you get lost along the way.

Thank you for hopping by, i look forward to reading your comments and i hope to see you again very soon  J.
