All That Glitters Is Not Gold... It's Dazzling Shamrocks!

It's time! It's time!!! Time Dueling Darling time!!!

On the 15th of every month the Divas and the Dazzlers get to show off their theme-appropriate creations. This month, Michelle was the hostess for the Dazzlers and Barb was the hostess for the Divas. They chose a St. Patrick's Day theme.

Michelle's kit ws full of so many fun items, including designer papers, embellishments, and even an Irish Blessing. She told us we could add an image of our choice, so I went with a freebie digital coloring book page that she gave us the link for and printed out the adorable little St. Patty's Day Bear. Isn't he cute???

Michelle also challenges us to describe any St. Patrick's Day traditions that we have. Hmmmmmm... I thought... and thought... and thought some more........ and came up with NOTHING! I guess there's not an Irish bone in my body, because I usually don't even remember to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, and I don't like corned beef (though I do like cabbage). I'm sorry, Michelle. I hope I don't get kicked out of the Dueling Darlings over this!

Speaking of the Dueling Darlings, let's go see what they made...
