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.

The Band for My Creative Scrapbook Sketch

Here's the sketch I worked from that I found over at My Creative Scrapbook...

And my layout entitled The Band

I dug through some OLD supplies to pull this layout together.  I always have a tough time doing "teen" layouts because the typical cutesy boy papers just don't work for my teen.  He's a guitar player with long hair and trains and airplanes do not compute for him!  I've had this Creative Imaginations paper by Marah Johnson for probably 5 years - I found it along with a lot of the coordinating embellishments and had to have it - then I never used it.  Well it's about time I did.  The background polka dot paper is also really old - it's from EK Success and it's part of the "I Do" line that I bought when I first started scrapping (I was working on our wedding album at the time).  I added the inked edges to the papers to grunge it up a bit and make them all work together.  The die cut circle is actually Pink Paislee from one of their Christmas lines last year...it works though.  There is such a sense of satisfaction when I can pull together a page about my teen and be happy with the finished product...this is one of those times.
Pin It!
