Framed Shamrocks


Happy Friday!
It's the weekend again already. I don't know where the weeks are going. We dread Monday morning to come but it seems Friday is 
upon us before we know it.
I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend, maybe even get a movie or two watched.

This past week I have been wondering how to decorate my shelf for 
St. Patrick's Day. 
I plan to have it decorated by Saturday. I should have had it done by now but I am definitely a lazy St. Patrick's decorator.
Sure, I have to take it down in a week or so to put the Easter decorations up!



Anyhow, I had a little 4x6 wooden frame that has been sitting in a drawer for a good number of years now. I got it out and gave it a couple coats of white paint...nice and fresh!
I cut a 4x6 piece of silver scrapbook paper and attached 3 foam shamrocks to the paper.

I didn't like how plain it looked so I got out some green glitter glue and filled in the shamrocks...
much better. 
The shamrocks kind of look like those puffy stickers we used to get as kids...and glitter is always good!

I was happy to feature your submission from last weeks link party. It was so cute and now I want to to it for my kids' birthdays. I was looking through your list of 'Where I Like To Party' and didn't see my link party listed. I know how it can be with SO many link parties out there. It could be easy to forget or believe that you already did it. If you would please add my button, I would appreciate it. www.cookienut.blogspot.com
