Wearin' o' the Green

Just Buggin' Challenge #28 - St. Patrick's Day
Cartridges: Calligraphy, A Child's Year, Home Decor

I liked the top picture of my youngest, Jake, and I thought with the green background I might be able to use it for this challenge. All three of my boys would hide their 'green' on St. Patrick's Day (I guess it wasn't 'cool' to wear it outwardly) but Jake found these cute boxers that said No Pinching No Pinching No Pinching...anyhow, I thought I would look on the web to find something about wearing green on St. Patrick's Day and immediately saw the lyrics to this song about how England had forbidden the 'Wearin' o' the Green', so, perfect - he's hiding his green! I don't think you can see the Musical Score stamp in the background of the lyrics.

"O Paddy dear, and did ye hear the news that's goin' round? The shamrock is by law forbid to grow on Irish ground! No more Saint Patrick's Day we'll keep, his color can't be seen. For there's a cruel law ag'in the Wearin' o' the Green."

Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for looking!
