Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top of the Mornin' to you! To all of my friends--Irish or not, I hope you enjoy the day and have a chance to eat some corned beef and drink something green...I'll be raising a glass to you all today!

I'd like to say a special hello to my friends over at Willow Traders. Remember how I told you all to check them out at the begging of the month? Well, TODAY is OUR day to celebrate the WT 3rd Anniversary Bash!!! Be sure to stop by and check out all the challenges--we'll be doing lots of fun things for sure...

So to kick it off, here is Challenge #1:


Special thanks to Janelle Richmond for creating this sketch--it is exactly what I wanted to start the day! A quick and easy layout using a larger picture as a focal point. What could be more simple than that? Upload your finished layout over at WT (or a link to the finished layout on the WIP thread), and the winner of the April Add-on kit will be announced at 11:30pm tonight.

There will be 3 other challenges today as well...so throw some Irish Soda Bread in the oven and get hoppin', will ya?

Cheers!
