** Scraps of Darkness ** September Kit

So I finally finished two layouts using the amazing September Kit "Passages" from Scraps of Darkness. I am SO glad that I joined this kit club!

Here is me and my hubby I have been wanting to do a "green" layout and this is what I came up with....

Here is a close up of the masking and the "Corset"

This next layout is a photograph of my grandpa taken in the 40's during WWII. I have a ton of family heritage photos that I need to scrap and the passages kit is perfect for this!!

Here is a close up of the corner with the cork and buttons - I decided to burn the paper and the edge of the cork  rather than inking it. I also used some of the ash from the paper to distress the folds as well.

Thanks for having a look!

About You - Once Upon A Sketch Aug 15th challenge

Here is my take on the sketch over at once Upon a Sketch. You needed to include song lyrics in your layout. I included "our" song by a local Hawaiian duo called C&K. Thanks for looking!

Some new pages!

I can't believe that I haven't scrapped anything for almost a month! Time flies sometimes.....Especially when you work full time. We went on a vacation with the extended family to Sisters, Or. and had a fabulous time. I started to scrap my photos from it this weekend.

I guess I forgot to put this page on my blog! I made the big green flower following a tutorial by Gabrielle....and painted the chipboard bird cage with acrylic paint and stickles.

My daughter took this picture of our Siberan Husky this past winter...I thought it was amazing! He looks so serious, but is the most goofy, loving dog ever. I wanted to use a black/silver color scheme. I thought it was appropriate to add a bit of the sky blue for his eyes.

Lost in a DayDream

This is a picture of my kids a couple of years ago at Lake Cushman. They were literally "lost in a daydream" and it was one of those great photgraphic moments that you want to preserve. Especially since they were sitting so close and not fighting!!! I thought that the Webster's Yacht Club papers would be perfect for it. Enjoy!

First Scrap Page!

Finished my latest page!!!.....

First Post

So I started this blog to be able to share my scrapbook pages.... I tried for a couple of hours yesterday to make the page look's alot harder than I thought! Which is probably why I don't do digital scrapbook pages!!! Working on a page of my daughter when she was probably around 15 months old. Once it is done I will post it! H
