Top 'O the Morning....

I decided I wanted something for St Patrick's Day on my fireplace. But I didn't want to buy anything. Enter the computer and some paper. I used Word to write the #17 and then printed St Patrick's Day below the numbers. I picked a green I liked and hit print. I printed it out on regular typing paper (how frugal is that??) If you want something to look more polished you could use card stock. I trimmed the paper to 8"X10" and put it in a white frame I have. I really love the way it turned out. It's clean and simple but festive.

I used a plate stand to display the frame and voila! St Patrick would like it, I think!

I am linking up to Wendy's Frugal Friday. So much fun!

Creative thinking! I'm Irish so I do love St. Patrick's Day but I especially love it because it is the day I got engaged!
