Get It Scrapped: Luck Is...

March is a month in which the topic of luck often pops up. Get It Scrapped invited members of the creative team to document a story of luck. A perfect topic to share on St. Patrick's day. I chose to define what luck means to me.

Luck Is by Christy Strickler |Supplies Cardstock: Colorbok;Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants; Letters: Girl's Paperie, Evalicious; Flair, Jewels: Studio Calico; Tape: American Crafts; Tag: Traci Reed Designs, K and Company; Other: Doily, Staples; Based on a sketch from the Get It Scrapped Membership

I decided to use an older photo of myself. I could have turned to the tried and true green and luck themed collections. Instead, I felt that, since this was a page about me, I might as well take advantage of a paper collection designed to document yourself. The Fancy Pants Me-ology line has hints of green, but most importantly, many of the papers are bold and contain uplifting messages.

Luck is certainly different for everyone, but I have always believed that if I did good things and worked hard opportunity would find me. Sometimes, being lucky simply means being brave enough to try something. Opportunity isn't always an easy thing to take advantage of and it doesn't always come packaged as we would expect it.

How would you document luck? We would love for you to share with us in the Get It Scrapped gallery.
