Counterfeit Kit May Blog Hop

Hi. If you are here for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop, welcome. If you stumbled onto my blog and would like to start at the beginning or you are looking for the complete list of blogs you can find it here. Our challenge was to get inspiration from our favorite scrapbook company and their blog. I have quite a few favorite companies, but for the challenge I chose Jillibean Soup. They have so many fun layouts on their blog and I found this layout by Julie Bonner and thought it was great.
For my layout I switched the hearts for shamrocks. I had this adorable picture of my grandson from St. Paddy's Day and I was happy to find a cute layout idea.
I used my Cricut to cut the shamrocks with the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I used a touch of adhesive on the top of each shamrock to hold it in place while I was sewing but none near the center because I didn't want the needle to be sticky. I followed the lines of the ledger paper to keep the sewing straight. The layout went together much more quickly than I expected. I think it took about an hour from start to finish. All of the papers came from my May Counterfeit Kit. Thank you for looking.

The next stop on the hop is Christy. I am sure she has something great to share with you :)
Edited to add: I am so happy you have stopped and left a comment for me. My blogger is allowing me to make a post, but I can't stay signed in or comment on any blogs right now. I will be commenting on all of your blogs as soon as this blogger problem is solved. Thank you.
