Happy St. Patrick's Day

**I entered this LO in the Practical Scrappers challenge to use something you've had for over a year. I don't even KNOW how long I have had that background paper! Definitely more than a year. You can visit Practical Scrappers to see all the challenge entries.**

Today I thought I'd share one of the layouts I made during the Seeing Green crop last weekend. The challenge was to do a monocromatic layout using all green embellishments and patterned papers. I dug through all of my stash to find things that were green and then put together this LO with pictures of Bailey eating her goldfish. I liked these pictures because the green bowl goes with the whole "green" theme. I used some glittered letters for my title and sprayed glimmer mist onto my background paper. It is in a floral design, but it is difficult to see.

I used a Basic Gray doilie on the bottom of the layout. For the solid portion I turned the paper over and glimmer misted it with Olive. I cut out three of the flowers from the unused portion of the doilie to use as accents and layered on a light green Prima pearl swirl.


  1. Lol there is something hilarious about babies and dogs doing whatever it takes to get the job done. This picture series is great. Who cares if I have to put a bowl on my head that goldfish is going in my mouth! Get in there gold fish! Come on already! Fantastic. So glad you were able to capture it.

  2. I just love this layout. I can relate to having design paper that has been sitting in my stash for well over a year. Thank you for joining us this week at Practical Scrappers.

  3. She seems to enjoy her "goldfish". Lovely LO and love the green.
