March GREEN Challenge by Penny

Guest Design Team Member Penny submitted this layout for the March GREEN Challenge.  She said:

"Lucky Me"

Supplies for this layout included a swap item that I had held on to since "2001", it is the little Leprechaun and pot, I added the money to the back of it, and the bling dots. It was made by Donna Curruthers, but it fit this page perfectly and since I had kept it for so long I thought it needed a "real home" on a layout, and it fit this month's theme perfectly. On the title, and on the photo of Buddy, you'll find a tiny $ sign, that was really a part from a set of earrings. The top photo is from the actual ticket. The scalloped border on the bottom was purchased from the school supply section of our local Dollar General, I just inked the edges a little to tone down the color some. Since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner I thought I'd try making a layout with that in mind. The journaling on this page reads:
Buddy took a leap of faith and bought a lottery ticket. He won! Since his ticket said "Jumbo" it multiplied his prize five times. So he won $500.00.
 Love Penny
