Berry71Bleu, Stuck on U Sketches and Something Tattered Canvas!

Hello! Today I want to share with you my project for Cathi's Luck O' the Irish March Challenge at Berry71Bleu using today's Stuck On U Sketch.. 

Being Irish myself, I love this challenge! 
I decided to create a canvas that reflects on my fiercely Irish oldest son, Hayden. 


I used a yellow Manor House flower and the lovely circle chipboard frame from our sponsor, Molassi. Be sure and check out the Stuck On U Sketch and the way the rest of the DT interpreted the sketch! I always have lace and doilies on hand which I added in layers along with some green moss and Prima chipboard.


One of our sponsors this month is Something Tattered,where I am lucky enough to be the DT Coordinator. I used the French Month,"March" stamps as seen below.


For the "luck" aspect, I used this quote from Winnie-the-Pooh:
"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."


The picture I scrapped is of Hayden and I on the night of his senior Prom. I still remember that moment when the doors to their Party Limo closed and he and his friends were headed off to the dance. The fact that he was really graduating and moving on to the next chapter of his life and I broke down in tears. 

I am so proud of him and all he has done and am so hopeful for all the wonderful things that will come to him in the future.



I hope you will join along with us, the challenge will be open till April 1. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

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.
