I am so excited to have been selected to be one of Liz's 
guest  designers while she recoups.
since its so close to St.Patrick's Day 
I thought my project would be about that day.
All you need for this project is 
5 pieces of wood small but and size of shape you would like
Mine are all 2 inches wide but the lengths vary.
Assorted papers (i used scraps from other projects)
mod podge
scissors
embellishments 
paint
just the blocks cut from a 2 x 2 board
assorted paper scraps
other supplies
the blocks painted 3 different colors
adding the mod podge 
adding the paper for each block
its all you choice which paper to use
i tried to use a darker paper with the lighter paints
(i also didn't paint the backs or bottoms)
I was to lazy...lol
all papers on and 2 layers of mod podge later
 cute the letter on my Cricut Expression 2 at 2.25 inched
used the font already on the machine
mod podged the letters on
2 layers of mod podge later and drying 
this could be all you do and its done
but i say more is better so
i added embellishment to each block
ribbon and lucky coins to the "L"
a button to the "U"
a cupcake pick to the "C"
another button on the "K" 
and a Bottle of drink to the "Y"

I want to thank Liz for having me and for all of you to visit my blog
and 
" may the road rise up to meet you"
