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.

Christmas Delicious-ness, an Artful Delight Giveaway and List of Fours...

I hope that all of you had a blessed Christmas.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time with my parents, my brother-in-law and our close family friends.  It was a whirlwind of a weekend but it was so wonderful!  I'm looking forward to playing with all the new scrappy goodness that my husband and oldest son got me for Christmas...here's a little sampling of all the yumminess. 

I know lots of the papers are older lines but I have been admiring them for SO long and just haven't had the budget to add them to my collection.  So seriously, who wouldn't be inspired to craft with all those goodies?  The kids are still home from school this week so I don't know how much I'll get to right away because I really want to spend more time playing with them now that the mad holiday rushing around is over but next week when they are back in school - look out because the paper will be flying around here.
