Hello my dear CE friends!!!  So very glad that you are able to join me today.  I am sharing a layout which includes a collaboration with Rinea paper foil paper and my son who was born on St. Patrick’s Day about 40 years ago, so we named him Patrick Ryan O’Mosher.  Seemed the right thing to do for a baby that weighed in at 10 lbs. 1 oz. and 23 1/2 inches long.  He was a BIG guy.  Anyway, he is now 6’4″ and is such a gentle giant with such a sweet nature.  This photo was taken a few years ago.

I started with a couple random papers in purple for the base and shamrock green for the top and ripped them.  Then I slipped some gorgeous Rinea  foil papers in gold with the star embossed and tucked them in between.  I just love the Scandinavian Mountains chipboard.  They remind me so much of the mountain ranges around Anchorage.  I wanted some “purple mountains majesty” so I painted the bottom of the mountains purple and heat embossed the top with a Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing power.  I used a smooth Rinea foil paper behind the mountains to make them pop!!!

 

I next painted the Scribble Shamrocks a light metallic and cut cardstock to glue behind it.  Then I popped each one up pretty high on the page.

The final touch was the title My Lucky Charm.  Patrick will always be my favorite little leprechaun!!!  After all he is at least 25% Irish!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!!!!  May the Luck of the Irish be With You!  Stay safe, hunker down, as this too will pass.  We got our first 2 confirmed cases of Alaskan residents last night with the virus, and they had just returned from a visit to the Lower 48.  So, it finally reached Alaska.  I am working from home and having a blast catching up on my scrapbooking, as I hope you are as well.  Take care and here’s a Big Alaska Bear Hug!!
