Scrap Our Stash Design Team Page: March GREEN Challenge

Over at Scrap Our Stash there seems to be a side theme running, quite by accident
...aaaand it's another 'Lucky' Layout!
Why mess with a great theme? lol

The pictures for this layout were taken over (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend in 2011 at a local Apple Orchard. Every year we go to pick apples on the last day it's open. Thanksgiving Monday = 1/2 price pick-you-own! yum. We (read: my boyz) also do the corn-maze and hay-jumps, this year due to health issues I had to sit out and wait. While sitting in the field, poking around I found 3... 4 leaf clovers. Must be *some* fertilizer they use! ;O)

Background paper is K&Company which 'luckily' matched the Little Yellow Bicycle 'Lucky Me' stuff I had bought to do our wedding album. Of which I have maaany dupe, trip and many more-lacates. The stripe with the sentiment and diamonds is part of a LYB 12X12 patterned sheet. Lucky and Lucky Me 'signs' are Clear Cut foil accents. Strip of clover across is a sticker, cut to go around the sentiment stripe.
Was thrilled to be able to work one of the actual pressed and dried clovers into the layout. I started with a round LYB journal block, layered round stickers over top then after cutting the clover to fit in the 'hole' I coated the inner circle in 3D Crystal Lacquer. This was left to dry for 2 days because it's laid on THICK to create a bubble look. Better safe than sorry!
Final touches were stick-on gold braid, part of an auction lot I got of vintage sewing stuff and a few Gem stickers along the sentiment stripe.
Isn't it great when Mother Nature provides the embellishments? Now I ask you, What's more GREEN than that? huzzah!
