Lucky Me

This month I wanted to celebrate those lovely ladies and create a layout with some of my favorite photos of us together. You can easily create shamrocks for your page by trimming one of the petals off of a punched Flower Power shape.

Lately there hasn't been a day that goes by where I don't stop and think about how lucky I am. And one of the reasons I feel that way is because I've got a great group of girlfriends who are there for me in so many ways. On a daily basis they reach out and touch my life and help me get by.
