Scraps of Elegance Blog Hop and Design Team Reveal!!!


You may know Scraps of Darkness already-
 she is on the edgy and daring side and is always the "pushing the envelope" kit of diversity.

Now we would like to introduce you to her new sister---

Her style is more on the sweet and romantic side... a true classic beauty

Now on with the reveal!

Love
My first layout is my interpretation of Suepups sketch for us this month! The photo is of my dear friend Melinda's grandparents! I'm so lucky she allowed me to scrap this gorgeous photo!

These papers are so soft and romantic. Perfect for a shabby chic style. I used a lot of my Heartfelt Creations stamps on here too. The book, love stamp, flowers and writing are all from HFC.

Goddess
I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite layout this month but I really love this vintage photo. I picked it up at an etsy shop. I'll be adding to my favorite etsy list on the sidebar to include my vintage photo sites. These papers were made for her. The beautiful little bird card and gorgeous crystal flourish were all in this months SOE kit! The flowers are another Heartfelt Creations die that I stamped with a flourish stamp and inked. The little gold roses were also a beauty included in our kits!

She

This photo is of my older daughter when she was a baby. I thought these soft sweet papers by Melissa Frances were the perfect fit for her sweet baby face!
That beautiful butterfly is made by own Renea and sold in her etsy. This one was included in our kits!

Beautiful
  
My layout for today is of my mother in law when she was a young woman. I think she was stunning and love this photo of her!
Love the Kaisercraft paper and the beautiful vintage tags! I took the cameo rub on and used it on a piece of cardstock and cut it out. Then I inked it and covered it in glossy accents and bling. 

Just a close up-


Your next stop on the blog list is:
