Do You Feel Lucky?

This weeks challenge is a little different over at Lasting Memories. We have 3 elements to it if you REALLY want to challenge yourself, but only ONE is mandatory!

1.Lasting Memories wants to see the word LUCKY on your layout - this can be the title, journaling - as long as we see it and this is MANDATORY
2.If you want a little more challenge, add in what you find inspiring about the photo below (NOT mandatory)
3.Or challenge yourself by using the word LUCKY and the sketch. Again, this one is NOT mandatory
4.REALLY want to challenge yourself?? Along with the word LUCKY, try the sketch AND photo!

So you see, it's really up to you this week but remember, you HAVE to use the word LUCKY and it does not have to be St. Patty's Day theme, but it's up to you!! Oh and one more thing - we have ANOTHER giveaway!! In honor of her birthday, Suzanne is offering up this FAB prize ... !!So what do ya think?? Worth joining us this week over at Lasting Memories?
