Lucky Me page and Beer Cheers card

Here are the projects we did for club this month. The theme is, guess what? St. Patrick's Day! The page and the card can be used for anything and the card is a great masculine all occasion card.

This page is a case of jazzescrapper from SCS here

This page will be about my oldest kids' friendship. They are 13 months apart and in the same grade since the 2nd grade. They have been asked if they are twins since David was 3 and Charlene was 2. They are as different as night and day in many ways, but they are both wonderful people. I love to see how well they get along and how they watch out for each other. They are close to each other in a way that I don't think me and my siblings ever were, and I find it so inspring. This picture was taken during our marathon session of picture taking this fall for family pictures, individual pictures and for Senior pics for David and Charlene. We decided to do them ourselves and they turned out pretty well! These 2 goofballs wanted to submit this as their senior photo for the yearbooks (they are in 2 different high schools-Charlene is in a charter school so she can focus on her artsy side). I of course vetoed that. But I still love this picture :)
