HAPPY St. PATRICK's DAY...

Éirinn go Brách
which is translated
"Ireland until the end of time".

The Anglicization of this Irish language phrase is the more familiar 
Erin go Bragh  - or Ireland Forever!

My Niece and I took a month long road trip a couple of years back and drove the entire perimeter of Ireland.  Not nearly enough time - but still brings a Mona Lisa smile and a wee tilt of my head at the memories.

  • Chose DP and matching Copic colors for my focal image and an A2 size base card.
