Happy St. Patty's Day and Free Vintage Image

Hi Everybody,
Happy Saint Patty's Day!
Are you wearin' the green?
We attended the local St. Patty's Day Parade on Saturday. Jordan and Kaiden both wore their green. We made special tee-shirts for the day using some free clip art we found on the Internet. Jordan had a green pixie and Kaiden's was a cute puppy with a hat and bow tie. I think they turned out really cute and the kids seemed to really like them.

It is so easy to do this! If you haven't tried a project using the fabric transfers kits, you really should. It took longer to find and select the clip art than it did to make the tee-shirts. lol

Of course the parade had lots and lots of revelry going on, particularly around the taverns. I just couldn't figure it out, maybe it was the green beer! lol

The parade had several bag pipe bands/groups or whatever they're called. They were awesome and really brought the Irish spirit to the crowd.

The kids had a great time. They enjoyed all the entrants and collected lots of candy. It was so chilly that halfway through the parade we had to take a hot chocolate break and warm up.

Tonight we visited one of our local Irish Pubs and had some awesome corned beef and cabbage and wee bit of green beer, a nice finish to St. Patty's Day.

One of the things I love about my scrapbooks are the unusual cards that I run across. This is one of my favorites, I hope that it will be one of yours as well. As usual, make sure you click on it before you save it.

Have a great week, plumb full of smiles!
