Shamrock Shaken

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I got some scrap time this weekend and I made the most of the time I had!  So I've kind of determined that this month is "The Month of the Challenge Blogs"  Almost every LO I've done his month has been inspired by a challenge blog.  Either an idea, product, sketch or any combination has contributed to my creativity.  Like i said in an earlier post this month, that's where I jump start my mojo when I don't get consistent time to create.

Today's credit goes to Sketches in Thyme.  I used sketch #105.  I started using their sketches in Dec and have been playing along there ever since.

We aren't big McD's family. My son would rather get a sandwich than a burger.  So I really couldn't remember if he'd ever had a Shamrock Shake.  Everyone needs to have a Shamrock Shake at some point right?  There was no school last Friday. We had all kinds of icky errands to do, so I decided we needed to do something fun. (Ok, I'd actually been planning this for over a week, but he didn't know that). We were talking about what to get for lunch as I pulled into Mc D's drive through. He gave me such a funny look until he heard me order the shakes.  This is the grin I got from him afterwards.

I kept the general idea of the sketch the same, but changed the photo size. I played with paper sizes and patterns then went a little crazy with color.  I had to mimic St. Paddy's day, with the green and the rainbows! There is lots to look at in terms of color and pattern, but it all seems to work together.
