Lucky Charm Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog and the Lucky Charm Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Sue, you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can start at the beginning at Giselle's blog. This blog hop is all about creating something for the lucky charm in your life.  I chose to make a layout featuring my Lucky Charms!

I know.  I know.  This is probably a picture that only a mother can love and everyone else can get a chuckle out of.  It's hilarious and I was so thrilled that the photographer was able to capture them having such fun.  While both of my kids can be dorky, finding them doing it together and getting along is a rare event!  I love these guys!

Ok, enough teasing.  Here is the entire layout.  I am thrilled with how this turned out and I sure hope you enjoy it too.

Patterned Paper is K& Co
Cardstock is miscellaneous
Cricut Carts used were A Child's Year (font and clovers) and Storybook (bubble for title)
EK Success border punch
The flower I have had forever.  I don't remember who made them.  Sorry!
Prima Pearls
I used a gold metallic pen to highlight the clovers, letters and edge of the cream portion of the bubble for the title.

Now for the fun stuff!!  I have blog candy to give away to one of you lucky hoppers!!  I am giving away the Cricut Cartridge "Four Legged Friends".  I forgot to take a picture but it is new and still in the clamshell.  To be eligible for the drawing leave a comment including a way I can contact you and become a follower.  I'll use random drawing next week to choose a winner.

 I hope you enjoyed my project. Thank you for visiting my blog and a big thank you to Giselle and Nadia for letting me be a part of this hop!!. Your next stop is Patricia. Below is a list of all blog participants in case you get lost:
