Welcome to the Lucky Charm Blog Hop!

Welcome to my Blog and the Lucky Charm Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting  Carrie you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can start at the beginning at This blog hop is all about creating something for the lucky charm in your life..

I’m excited because this is the Second Blog Hop to be participating in. I would like to thank Giselle and Nadia for putting this together. It’s been so much fun creating this project about the lucky charm of my life. This month, my husband and I will be together as a couple for 14 years now. Next month will be our 5th year wedding anniversary! He is truly the lucky charm in my life because he is such a loving, hard working, and incredible man. He takes good care of me, spoils me tremendously, and supports my crazy obsession for scrapbooking/cardmaking. 

We were asked to create a project for the lucky charm in our life. I created a centerpiece that he is able to display in his office at work. I wanted it symbolize things that we enjoy together. The one thing that we enjoy is Disney. If you notice, the top part of the centerpiece is shaped like Mickey Mouse. Then, I added some fun Gold Coins hanging down from it! Here is a short clip of my project. 

{Some of the basic tools that you would need to create this project.}
 {Insert foam into pot & then cover with Card Stock.}
 {Attach two small foam balls with a straight pin to be inserted into the larger foam ball. This will create a Mickey Head. Then with a Martha Stewart Shamrock Punch: Punch several shamrocks using 2 different colors to cover the foam balls. I attached the shamrocks with a green or yellow straight pin to the center of each clover. }
 {Then you take a 1/2 wooden dowel and wrap it with tape floral. Then, you will insert it into the pot and place the Mickey Head Piece onto the dowel.}
 {Simply Charmed Cartridge: Cut Leprechaun at 4 in. I added a button to it's jacket. Then, I used one of the St. Paddy's stickers from Recollections.}
 {On each side of the leprechaun, I placed an eyelet brad of a sign that says "Leprechaun Crossing." I added Green & Yellow Spool Ribbon hanging down the Foam ball.}
 {I attached a gold coin that says "Get Lucky" to each ribbon}
 {Shamrocks are surrounded around the pot.}
 The Final Product:
My Dear Husband Peter: 
"You are the Lucky Charm in my Life!"
