Lucky Me (For Having You) By Kay

Happy St. Patrick's Day Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here with my take on Cathi's March challenge.  So for the month of March the challenge was to use green as the dominant color, incorporate the word or theme of 'luck' or 'lucky' & include a bit of doilies or lace.

I'll be the first to admit that green is not a color that I consider to be one of my strengths.  So I had to sit down & think about this one for a bit.  However, that's why they call it a 'challenge' & when you face a challenge you end up discovering new things.  With this page I discovered that green is really a fabulous color to work with!  You pick shades of green & mix them up with yellows & browns & you end up with one fabulous color scheme that just 'pops' off the page.

The end result of this page is one of my absolute faves!  This page is now hanging in my cube at the office!  The design for this page is based on a sketch from Page Drafts
 Another first for me is the use of shamrocks on my pages.  I've never had the opportunity to incorporate them onto my work.  Well look at them here!  I admit that I wanted shamrocks on my page but didn't have a single one in my stash.  How is this even possible I wondered!  So I ran out & got some.  Luckily since it's March--shamrocks can be found a-plenty in any craft store right now.

I also found shamrock confetti which I put inside the little glass vial seen next to my photo. 
To add a bit of dimension I rolled up a couple of pieces of paper & adhered them side by side.

I used a star stencil with some molding paste along with star chippies & a bit of stamping for my background.
 As usual I have my journaling included onto my page.  This time I stored it onto this tag which I tucked underneath one of my layers.
My flocked teddy bear!  Oh how I love these little embellishments.  I find excuses to use them onto my pages.  I was so happy to have a few in dark green which went along perfectly with this page!

Something Tattered

When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper.
In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west.
In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper.
In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle.
We hope you will share the passion.
