Shamrock Layout for a few challenges

I finally made a St. Patrick's Day layout.  I have been loving all of the shamrock things that are out at the stores this year, so I knew I wanted to make a layout with some shamrocks on it.  I decided to dress them up a little.  I told my hubby they were shamrocks ready for a night on the town, lol.  (He just laughed at me)

I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge for the shamrocks and the top hats, and then I used Storybook for the font.  I decided to go with the title "A Wee Bit Irish" for my layout.  I got this cute little hat from Party City that says that on it, so that was my inspiration for the title.  I added little bowties and google eyes to the shamrocks.  Finally, I outlined the shamrocks and frame in black and then added a shamrock button to the corner of the photo area.

I am entering this layout into a few challenges:
