Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Linking this up to Pink Saturday which actually is also Green Saturday in honor of St. Patrick's Day! Have a great weekend everyone!
Gotta have a little Irish jig and some gold for St. Patrick's Day!  This tag is for the Gecko Galz  Paper Crafting Yahoo Group's Luck O The Irish challenge which ends today.

Gecko Galz products:
We were to use the image of the dancers which was provided for the challenge.  This image came from the LuckotheIrish 1 and 2 ephemera sheets which I had.  So I also printed and fussy cut the images of the banner and shamrock.  I used pop dots on these two images for some added dimension. 

If you love digital images that you can get on-line, then Gecko Galz is the place for you!  Gecko Galz recently started a Yahoo Group called Gecko Galz Paper Crafting.  There are several challenges going on right now.  You will find all of them in the "database" section.  Some challenges come with its own Gecko Galz image, free for you to download and use in your entry.  When you complete your project, you post it in the appropriate challenge folder in the "photos" section.  The winner of each challenge receives Gecko Galz product.  

There also is a section to sign up for swaps by contacting the owner, Leanne.  Right now I see sign-ups for these swaps: ATCs, a domino pendant, a mini book, and tags.

I hope you'll join me in the Gecko Galz Paper Crafting Group
Here is the badge for your sidebar:
