Welcome to Paradise!

Hi everyone!

Not a card from me this week, but I do have a scrapbook LO to share with you. I have recently been getting back to a bit of scrapping, keeping a journal of all the fun things we get up to every month and also some traditional LOs. This is one about our visit to Celtic Park in Glasgow last December. As Celtic plays in a green and white hoops strip, I tried to mimic this with my background. Parkhead or Paradise is what the Bhoys (or Celtic fans) call the stadium. I'm not a crafter who plans very much, I just do and see how things turn out. Sometimes that's a disaster (because I already stuck on some elements and can't change it around anymore) but it worked out pretty well this time. Hope you like this change of pace from me!
