Scraps of Darkness May Kit

Happy Memorial Day!

I decided to join Scraps of Darkness this month with the assurance that I will have a kit for June. I was excited when Melinda emailed me saying she had a current kit available. This month kit has an Asian flair. So far I was only able to finish two layoits with the kit. I finish the May Sketch and a layout for my son. This kit papers were bright and busy. I struggled for a minute with the kit due to the business of the papers.

The May Sketch layout is a picture of my daughter at 3 months old. I didnt have a fan in my kit so I created one with the bamboo sticks that were in the kit. The flower vines were from my stash at home.

**** This Layout won MAY SKETCH CHALLENGE at Scraps of Darkness ****

The other layout is a picture of my son when he was 3 months old. With this layout I forced myself not to use flowers. I love flowers and I grab for them alot. My son has those girly eyes and hair so I really do not want to use alot of flowers. But I know its coming soon for me to create a boy layout with a few flowers. The crane from this kit was painted with leftover white paint in the brush and little mermaid

 A closeup of the crane.

Thanks for looking and Have a wonderful holiday!


  1. Your "Dream Big" layout is beautiful, love how you created your own fan.

  2. I love both of your layouts! I say use flowers on boy pages, go for it!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is amazing once we are able to let go and let God in our lives isn't it! I am so thankful he sticks with us even when we try to take over!!!!

    Be blessed,
