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.

Wintertime at Sweet Peach Crop Shop

I recently received the Wintertime kit from Echo Park as part of my design team assignment for Crop Chocolate.com and was looking forward to getting a chance to work with it.  I took a break today from all things Christmas and set to work on this month's Sweet Peach Crop Shop sketch created by Liz Chidester.  Here is the sketch she created...

All the snowflakes inspired me to play with the Wintertime collection and the collection worked great with my pictures from last winter of Tyler enjoying his time in the snow.  Here is my take on the sketch...

I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to sit down and create a layout...it's been a while with all the holiday gift projects I've been working on.  That and the shopping, wrapping, writing, baking, decorating....you get the idea.  It's been busy and I've missed my time at my scrapping table dearly.  This was just a temporary break though, I still have hundreds of sugar cookies to bake, frost, and deliver to my wonderful friends and neighbors and my folks are coming into town for Christmas on Monday so at some point I have to get the dust cleared, the bathrooms cleaned (yuck!) and the floors vacuumed all before they arrive.  Wish me luck!
Pin It!
