LUCKY Layout - St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
St. Patrick's Day is a fun day for Irish and Irish-for-a-day alike to celebrate. This day has even more meaning to my friend, Deborah, as she celebrates her wellness from cancer each year. We celebrated early this year with lots of hugs and goodies. I created a layout to hold the group photo as a keepsake for Deborah.
