I Am Lucky!

Hi, Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway.  Today is my turn to Design at SweetSassyDiva's.  Our theme is Luck of the Irish.  One of my students found a project on Pinterest and asked me to help her create it with the Gypsy.  I used her idea as a springboard for my own.

I started with this shamrock from Designer's Calendar sized at 11 inches and cut it out of green cardstock.

Next, I found Lucky from Sophisticated and sized it to 2.08 inches.  I cut out the shadow layer in gold cardstock and the top layer in green cardstock.  I cut out two sets.

There is a 1" square in the center of the shamrock that needs to be covered up, so I cut a heart from George sized to 1.82 inches.  I cut it out of gold cardstock.  I also cut out the words "I am" from Base Camp sized to .73 inches.  I cut them out of black cardstock.
I used the negative piece to cover up my photo collage.  
These photos represent why I feel lucky this year ~ my family and the vacations we took this past year.
I took the inner cut and the extra "Lucky" to create a second layout.

Here is the gold heart I cut to cover the square of the photo collage.  I taped it to the negative piece of black cardstock  in order to line up the words "I am".

I adhered the letters down and peeled the black cardstock away.

My letters are straight and evenly spaced!

I used foam squares to pop dot the word "Lucky" to my layout.

 I needed a page to go along with Tanner's St. Pat's Day layout from last year, so I used shamrock and the extra word "Lucky".
Here is my 2012 layout for how Lucky I feel!  Thanks for having me over today!!
