Top O' the Morning to you!

 Or good afternoon, or evening...or whatever time of day it is as you are reading this. I hope you are having a good one! I just had a minute or two to share a very belated St. Patty's day LO that I just made with items from my counterfeit kit. I know that June's kit is supposed to be all about summer. However, I realized I had some lovely greens in the kit and I am a bit behind in getting some of my photos scrapped ( because I take WAY too many photos). When I printed this photo of my son from St. Patrick's day, I knew the greens from my kit were perfect for it.
Pencil lines sketch 243
DMC floss
Colorbox ink-Olive
Studio G Stamp
Basic Grey brads
Making Memories - rub on alphas
Making Memories flowers and buttons
Making Memories chloe's closet leather frame ( cut)
Sassafrass border
Scenic Route PP

The matte that the photo is on is actually not a matte at all. I took two Making Memories journal spots, trimmed off the notebook edges and then glued them down together. There was a slight seam which I hid with a Sassafrass border and some buttons. I used the basic shape of this to influence the shape of the Patterned paper. The flowers and brads were not in my kit, but they went so well, so I used them anyway.
   This month has been hectic and I am sad that I did not get to play with my supplies as much as I wanted to. Here is wishing all of us who scrap a month of July full of me time and happiness! May we all get many pages done!!!


  1. Waht a lovely layout! The hand stitching and all your little details are so pretty. Great job including white space.

  2. Oh I like this - a lot. Great stitching - just a little makes a real impact.

  3. I like what you did with all those greens and the arc of brads is great - need to remember that to use up some of mine!
