Lasting Memories Ch. 79 "We're feeling LUCKY"

It's another week... which means another challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges!!  Yay!!  I really liked all the elements to this weeks challenge, and I hope you will too.   
Now, this weeks challenge is a little different. We have 3 elements to it if you REALLY want to challenge yourself, but only ONE is mandatory!
We want to see the word LUCKY on your layout - this can be the title, journaling - as long as we see it and this is MANDATORY to be considered for the PRIZE or part of the TOP 3.
 
  1. If you want a little more challenge, add in what you find inspiring about the photo below (my layout photos) (NOT mandatory)
  2. Or challenge yourself by using the word LUCKY and the below sketch. Again, this one is NOT mandatory
  3. REALLY want to challenge yourself?? Along with the word LUCKY, try the sketch AND photo!

Here is my layout to share with all of you...I actually was able to incorporate all 3 pieces of the challenge!  The word "LUCKY", the Sketch and the Photo (colors) for inpspiration.

And some close-ups of the word LUCKY that I used in my Title and 2 more times in my journaling.  I added some faux stitching around the border.  My banner and flowers are die-cuts.  Added some bling to all flower centers for some added shine.  I also added an additional journaling tag at the top behind my main photo that has a personal message to the kids from me.  :-)



Here is the sketch to follow, if you choose.

Here is the Photo to use for inspiration, if you should choose.




Oh and one more thing - we have ANOTHER giveaway!! In honor of her birthday, Suzanne is offering up this FAB prize ... !!  I also highly suggest you check out Suzanne's blog.  She is full of creativity!!  She does the Cricut justice!!  Happy Birthday Suzanne!!! 


I'm also participating in the TIC TAC TOE challenge over at The Paper Variety.  I followed the bottom row to Include stitching, create a layout and include a die-cut.  You have until the 13th at Midnight if you would like to play along.



Sooo... that is alot of fun things to show you!  Now just remember to use the word LUCKY on your layouts this week and come join us over at Lasting Memories for LMCB # 79!  You have until Saturday, March 17th @ 9pm EST to join us!!
