Scrap-it-Lah November Challenge

This month the challenge at Scrap-it-Lah is to do a 12x12 LO based on the colours of one county's flag.
After MUCH humming and haarring I decided on Ireland's flag. So green, white & orange it is!

I actually ended up doing a double LO because (a) I didn't want to trim the photos too much and (b) I needed 6 to tell the story!!! I've used Crate Paper (a rak from Michelle @ Scrap-it-Lah a while back :-) thank you), Rose Moka paper, Pink Paislee tape, Scenic Route chipboard circles (I just grabbed all the green, white & orange ones from a couple of sets!), and cut a couple of bikes from some Cosmo Cricket paper, thickers and a journal tag from Fancy Pants (it's an oldie!).
Here they are close up.

Cool bikes :-)
And these circles are supposed to read "Life is Always Good 24/7" hehee
:-) (Even if you have a face plant!)
Thanks for visiting.

love the colour choice those colours do work well, go the Irish flag for being so inspiring. You have been scrapping up a storm Rachel. Love the photos of the three kidlets and that conversation with Master A about the golf set he needs. He has a way with words...honestly that was sucha funny conversation.

Hi Rachel. Thanks for the support and I am so glad that the RAK came in handy. Love the combination and that the colours blend so well together.

I should have hoarded more of those Scenic Route Chipboard - love them so much and totally envious that I am seeing them on your layout.
