Scrapping a song...

Happy Monday!

Today I just wanted to pop in and share a beautiful layout by Michelle Phillips.  She created it with our November Scraps of Darkness "Serenade" kit:


Such a pretty layout, and here's what Michelle says about it:

"Ladies, my first layout - well sort of - for the gorgeous November kit for SOD, now I say sort of layout, one of the little cut outs in one of the pages is a music sheet of a song, that just happens to be a AB FAB of my Nan, so she wanted it front and centre to hang on her wall....whatever she wants she gets!"

And before I close the post out, I just wanted to tell you to make sure you stop back on December 27th, as we will have some exciting news to share!

Until then, I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season, and having a great Monday!

I love this time of year!

Today I am sharing a couple of my layouts that I created using the 
Scraps Of Darkness 'Serenade' kit

This is my beautiful granddaughter


I love the Bo Bunny Rose Cafe line!


The butterflies are from a previous kit that I sprayed with mist and added a bit of gesso!


The flowers I also misted and and the die cut some leaves


I layered a couple of doilies and added a die cut flower!


I love to layer the die cuts - it adds a lot of visual interest!

Next up is a layout  created using this months mood board as inspiration




I love this photo of my boys and hubby from the beach this year.  
We love spending time at the beach! 
The flowers I misted some and added gesso!
The frame and heart are from previous kits that I altered a bit


I altered the Prima resin, flowers and doily with mists and inks and gesso.


This beautiful blue fern chipboard is from the main kit, I sprayed, inked, and used gesso.  
I also used the BoBunny Double Dot Pearlescent Paint Tube which is really fun and 
easy to work with.


I LOVE the Taupe Wright's Venice Lace!
