St. Patrick's Day parade layout

Hello!  This is Michele Green from www.michelegreen.com, here to share a layout with you today.  St. Patrick's Day is a huge celebration in my town, complete with the state's largest parade.  It's an event to behold!

Something I challenged myself to do with this layout was to create it without looking at my photos first.  I am always impressed by people who can do this.  It turned out well but truthfully, I was there so I knew in the back of my mind what pictures I had in my stash...

Now for a dew details:

The horseshoe is from Everyday Pop Ups @ 3".  The mini shamrock circle on the other side of the layout is from Designer's Calendar @ 1.25".  I hand cut the flag.  I inked anything that was a solid color with a light green cat's eye stamper.

Here is what the layout looked like after I added my photos.  The thing about used patterned papers as mats is that when you put your photos in, all that gets covered up!

My tip for today - If you are going to blog about or recreate your project again later, keep notes as you go along about the materials you are using.  Here is my "note sheet" for this layout:

I hope you enjoyed my layout today and be sure to come back and visit this blog often!
