Why Scraps of Grace you ask??? Primarily because it is through God's grace that I am able to do what I love...scrapbooking, cardmaking, basically anything that has beautiful paper and embellishments involved. This is also a place to share my work as well as whatever is on my heart. A creative outlet for the mind, body, and soul.

I encourage you to relax, read, and browse a while and I hope that your day will be brightened and blessed by what you encounter.

Garden Variety...


I imagine that many vegetable gardens are in full growth right about now. Sprouting out their green leaves with just the hint of a green tomato or a few radishes ripe for the picking. At least here in Colorado that's where our garden is at. The boys LOVE harvesting the fruits of their labor and are absolutely elated when they can bring me a radish fresh from the dirt. Granted, they hate the taste of radishes but they grow fast so it's almost like instant gratification and when you're 4 and 6...instant gratification is important. I ordered this Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety kit from Queen Scraps a while back but had to finish editing my photos so I could get them printed and when you wait 6 months to edit photos - let me tell you, it takes a looooong time to get through them all. Anyhow, I had these great photos from last years tomatillo canning process and knew I wanted those photos to go on this paper so here it is. I used sketch #71 from over at The Scrappiest for the weekly sketch challenge.
Pin It!

I love this! The colours, photo's and paper are fantastic. I think 6 months is pretty good for photo editing, it usually takes me alot longer!
