Happiness is always an INSIDE JOB
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #53}

This week our theme for Challenge #53 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is Include a Shamrock I used the Lucky Hat St Patricks Day image from SK Digis.  You can purchase the image here. The sentiment is a freebie from Hannelie (Desert Diva).  

The image was paper pieced, and together with the shamrock embellishments, coloured with a combination of Copis and H2O water colour pencils.   The sentiment was chalked with dry chalks.  Most of the design papers are from BasicGrey - not sure from where the striped design paper is from - been in my stash for ages.  

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your Shamrock creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.53. Can't wait to see what you create.



Off to link this creation to the following challenges:
A big thank you to everyone for your good wishes for my {Doing Life's} stand at Hobby-X this past weekend.  It was a huge success, but yours truly are quite exhausted.  I also apologise for not visiting and commenting on all your wonderful creations the past week.  It is also not going to be possible for me this week as I am hosting two Scrapbooking Days at my home studio this coming Saturday and Sunday.  Hopefully I will be around to come and view your gorgeous creations from next week onwards.  I am missing you all. Crafty Hugs.

    Anyways, just wanted to come over and thank you for linking up to the Path of Positivity Challenge for April. I'm so thrilled that you have joined us. This card most definitely represents the tone I'm trying to convey. While scrolling through some of your latest posts I've found at least one more that would be perfect and when I comment on it I'll let you know.
