Let's Celebrate St. Patrick's Day w/Practical Scrappers

I can't trace my family tree back to Ireland, but that doesn't mean I can't celebrate with Practical Scrappers today, as we spotlight layouts and craft projects for St. Patrick's Day.
For this project, I started with a 5x7 frame that I bought in a multi-pack @ Michaels a few weeks ago.  I used my Cricut (and the A Child's Year cartridge) to cut the 5x7 mat with a shamrock cutout in the center.  I adhered green buttons to a background 5x7 piece of green paper, and then placed the mat and the button piece in the frame.  The Thickers and rubons were applied directly to the glass in the picture frame, and then I added some green bakers twine and a little bow.

And in the spirit of St. Patrick, here's an Irish blessing to share with you:

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
