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.

A Crafty Kind of Week...

So I seriously think I'm working on a record this week for how many times I can post on my blog...not on purpose but because I have lots I want to share with you all.  I completed this layout last night based on this week's sketch over at The Everyday Scrapper

It was a fun one for me as I did a lot of stuff that is out of the box for me.  I pulled older papers from my supplies one of which (the background paper) was white with this swirl embossing.  It was kinda plain by itself but smear an ink pad around it a bit and it really made the embossing pop off the page and fit right in with the fun theme of the boys' birthday party.  I also mixed elements from so many different manufacturers some of the stuff was just sitting in my supplies and it had probably been there for at least a year - untouched...well, not anymore.  It all made it's way onto this fun layout documenting a really fun party.  Enjoy!
Pin It!

Super cute layout, the ink to paper really did enhance it; I must remember that technique -
