Shrinky-Dinks on a layout and a FREE cartridge!

Hi everyone! Happy St. Patricks Day! (I'm totally slacking today!) I made this layout yesterday and decided to try something different for the title. I used plain shriky-dink "paper," cut it out with my cricut, colored with my alcohol inks and finally shruk them with my heat gun. I know they're not perfect, the words didn't want to cooperate with me too much while I shrank them, but I decided to use the title anyhow.
 The word Fancy, was stamped with an alphabet set I have. This is my daughter's favorite thing to say, so it had to be on here!
The paper and tag are from a collection by Basic Grey. I lightly brushed clear glossy accents around the edges of the turquoise mats and then sprinkled turquoise glitter on it before it dried, I just wanted to add a little sparkle around the pictures. I also hand pleated some light blue silk ribbon to the photo in the picture above. This picture of my daughter was taken at the New Year's Eve party where she was set up to meet her new boyfriend. He gave her this picture, complete with the note, in a beautiful frame for Valentine's Day. I scanned it and made a copy of course!

Remember, we have a special Blog-Birthday drawing coming up next week. I'll be giving away a 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. Please see this post for more info. So far we only have 3 names in the drawing...great odds there girls!!!! 

Have a super fabulous St. Patty's Day!
