My last official DT layout for Scraps of Darkness.

My sister took and taught dance for years. These pictures are from her teaching days.

I used the April kit, Foundations for this layout.

The single velvet ribbon is ruched to fit around the circle.

I used Smooch Illuminate over the foam Thickers to give them a shine.

Thanks for looking everyone! I appreciate my followers and I will be uploading new layouts as often as I can!

Scraps Of Darkness REVEAL Day!

My boys, looking way too cool!

This is based on the sketch for April by Charlotte aka Suepup.

I covered the timepiece clocks with clear embossing powder just for a little gloss and dimension.

I love the big apple tree in our yard. When it blooms I try to go out and take pics as soon as I can because with the OK winds, they don't hang on long! But, it does make our yard look like a fairy land of petals.

I switched up the colors a bit on this one.

Ahhh, Captain Jack Sparrow! Am I excited about this new adventure? YES! The pin that Mandy crafted seemed to come right out of his hair. ;)

My little boy on a trip to Houston with us years ago. I wanted to use the moss here as it created a TON of texture to the lo! I used a TH sticker as a label for the bottle.

Hello and WELCOME to reveal day at Scraps of Darkness!

I wanted to take a quick moment here to thank Melinda for giving me the opportunity to design for her these past months, it has been an amazing and eye opening experience!

This is my last month to design for SOD and I know that the team in place will rock out pages like no other! Sadly, time constraints are preventing me from continuing to design.

On to the kit:

This month's kit features the BRAND NEW Bo Bunny Timepiece line. A gorgeous array of golds, browns and reds that works for boys, girls, heritage and pirate pages! ;)

The color addon features Shimmerz Spritz and Perfect Pearls mists along with three Shimmerz pots. Fun for painting!

I used inks to change up or highlight the colors in this kit.

Apparently, my Tim Holtz mask jumped out at me to use with this as I used it twice!

The little bottles are so great. And I LOVED the Tim Holtz Idea-ology stickers! Alphabets, butterflies, school images and other odds and ends!

The ZVA is very pretty and I have a lo in the works that I wish was done, but it isn't, so I will post it in a week or so.
