My Lucky Charm

Good morning all. I had a good day yesterday but boy was I shattered when I got home! Didn't buy a huge amount but did come home with a bag of fancy wools, knitting needles and patterns to knit some scarves for presents.......hopefully the recipients will receive them this coming Christmas but don't hold me to it!!!

Today sees the launch of a new kit from Trish at Template Dreams, it's called My Lucky Charm. Also available are clusters, word art and journal cards. At first sight it's very St Patrick's Day orientated but looking more closely the papers and elements are gorgeous and lend themselves to many occasions.
I decided to scrap some of the photos I took at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo last summer.

The colours and the plaid were the perfect backdrop for these photos. I arranged the photos on the first page into a collage in Picassa 3. Layouts were created in Craft Artist.
