Delightful Challenges

Good Morning everyone!  I am a little sad today - today my big baby turns 17!  Ugh!!  When did that happen?  He was just the little guy that didn't leave my side a minute ago.  Sigh.  Anyway, just a quick shout out to wish my son Brendan a very Happy Birthday.

Now, let's move on to today's Delightful Challenges.  This week we're playing with St. Patrick's Day projects.

I have definitely been all about quick projects and Delightful Digi's by Looby Lou makes quick projects sooo easy.  So like I said, we're making St. Patrick's Day projects.  So I started with an easy diaper fold pouch, you can find the tutorial here on SCS.  Then I found a piece of single sided dp in my stash that I really didn't want to showcase.  I cut it down to 8 1/2 x 11 so that it can go into my printer.  I then printed the green gingham pattern from the Spring has Sprung digi paper pack.  Then I created the diaper fold pouch.  I also printed the pre-colored St. Patrick's Day Bongo for the tag and then added it to the pouch.  Threw some gold wrapped chocolates into a cello bag and viola'... DONE!

Now it's your turn - let's see what you create for St. Patrick's Day.
