This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Sunshine - Berry71Bleu Luck of the Irish Challenge

Hello Everyone

Today I post again, from an overcast and chilly Johannesburg! I wish I knew what has happened to our summer!!

I have a page up at Berry71Bleu for the Luck of the Irish Challenge hosted by Cathi.  It is really a super challenge.

So here is my page.

The wording is an Irish Blessing. 

For each petal on the shamrock
Good Health, Good Luck and happiness
This brings a wish your way
For today and everyday

I have a little poem tucked into the little folder which is also an Irish blessing.

May your joys be as deep as the oceans
Your troubles as light as it's foam
And may you find sweet peace of mind
Wherever you may roam

So this page is really about me telling them that I always wish many good and happy things for them and hope that they will always be blessed with everything good too.

I did some gesso stencilling and water colouring on my background and then also did some stamping.

I embossed the ornate photo corner with copper embossing powder and then added some pearls.

I used Graphic 45 papers and accents, which were perfect for this theme.

I hope you have been a little inspired and perhaps will play along with our challenge! Perhaps even a little Irish luck finds you winning one of the gorgeous prizes up for grabs! ;-)

You have until 31 March to upload your projects.

Have a super evening!
