Time is running out...

It's September 9, there are 5 days left to enter the contest!  We only have 2 submissions so far, so I'd really love to see a few more entries!  I know "dark" can seem like a forbidding word, but don't take it too litteraly.  We are talking about a style, so it can be a dark subject, or just dark colors, or a darker style, like grunge, steampunk, or whatever you think of as "dark".

I'm going to post the two submissions I received so far, and they are just amazing pieces of art!

The first is from Celina, aka Scrap Vamp aka forevervampress...


And this is what she had to say about the layout:  
Love Can Be a Prison layout. I created this layout because of the Book of Me Challenge both at scrapbook.com and scrapsofdarkness.com. The topic was "I wish someone had told me..." and this is what I wish someone had told me when I was young. That love can be a prison if you're not ready for it, if you have low self-esteem, and if you cling desperately to what you think is love only because you've never experienced it. When you're young it's easy to fall in love and when you don't know what real love is, it is easy to be confused by someone speaking sweet words but all the while breaking your spirit. I fell in love so desperately the first time that quickly it became a prison for me and I felt I could not escape from it. I am glad that I was able to get out and to replenish my spirit and confidence so that I was never made to feel this way about love again. Sorry, that was a lot. Now most of this is from my SOD kit. The only things not from the kit are the red and white cardstock, the small Prima roses, and the large black felt and lace flower that I got from Precious Paper over at Etsy. I inked the edges of the papers in Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Black Soot.

The second entry is from Cheryl, aka C Mom Go:


And this is what she says about her layout...
This is my entry for the Scraps of Darkness Blog Challenge. Link : http://scrapsofdarkness.blogspot.com/
(The pink tone is really burgundy IRL...sorry).   My husband and I in Feb 2010. 

So as I said, we've got 2 wonderful submissions, but I want to see more!  lol.

Have a great day, I'm off to work on getting September's kit ready for release next week!

  3. Hi Virginia. It should be a new layout as of the contest begin date, and you do not have to be a kit subscriber, only a follower on our blog! Can't wait to see what you post!
