Giving you a reason to smile

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  Today everyone is Irish!  To celebrate I did up this layout from one of my vacations to Ireland.  My daughter and I raising a glass at the Temple Bar in Dublin.

 Here I cut out a large circle and made it into strips and zig zag ed them for a more interesting look. 
 Drinking a pint of Guinness and an Irish coffee.  Cheers and may the luck of the Irish always be with you.
This definitely gave me a reason to smile!  8)
