I'm not Irish at all...in fact I am 100% Polish and proud of it. Sometimes I get a little bit annoyed that only the Irish get a special day with such widespread attention for their heritage! Ahhh...but I digress! My husband IS Irish, which of course makes my children Irish (but more Polish percentage-wise!). He is mostly Irish and each year, in attempt to embrace the holiday, I ask him if he'd like me to cook Corned Beef and Cabbage. His response is always, "Oh no...that food is awful!" Note: He LOVES kielbasa, pierogies and stuffed cabbage! Oh well, don't say I didn't ask! However, an "Irish" food we have no problem eating is Shamrock Shakes! Each March, McDonald's comes out with these delicious slightly minty green milkshakes to honor St. Pat's. Now THAT is an Irish tradition I can embrace! LOL!
Here is my take on Challenge #2: Get inspired by something from Ireland.
(Ok...so Shamrock Shakes aren't actually from Ireland, but I think I'm allowed to twist the challenge a bit! You can too, if needed!)
My son's expression (or smolder, as I like to call it) totally reminds me of the Dos Equis ad campaign, "The Most Interesting Man in the World". I just changed it up a bit to work with the theme. He is such a ham (or would that be a Corned Beef?)
The colors of Ireland come shining through on this layout.
I structured my journaling in the same format as in the ads. So silly! So fun!
Well, even though I sound a wee bit cranky about St. Patrick's Day, I really am ok with it. Just don't make me eat Corned Beef!
Thanks for stopping by!
