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.

Next to You...

Okay so my hubby and I have a TON of pictures using the same self-portrait pose.  Seriously...it really doesn't change much yet we continue to take this picture (all the time).  You'd think we'd teach one of the boys how to get a good shot of their parents.  Although, they aren't always with us when we do this.  We've gotten pretty good at self portraits but it made me laugh when I started going through a bunch of pictures and found all of these photos.
 
Supplies used: Alphabet stickers – Thickers (Heart); Brads – Basic Grey, Echo Park Paper Co., Making memories & My Minds Eye; Cardstock – The Paper Studio; Chipboard – Heidi Grace Designs by Fiskars; Die cuts – October Afternoon; Ink – Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink (Charcoal); Journaling cards – Simple Stories; Patterned paper – Basic Grey; Pens – Signo Uniball (White) & Pentel EnerGel Alloy; Pins – K & Co.; Rub ons – Doodlebug Design Inc. (numbers) & Fancy Pants (circles); Stickers – Echo Park Paper Co.; Tags – Michaels & Silhouette Cameo; Woolies – Basic Grey
 
You'll have to excuse all my no make-up shots.  These pictures were all taken either out hiking or while we were on various camping trips so I'm less than glamorous.  I'm surrounded by all guys in my household so we do a lot of outside, getting dirty kind of activities...ain't nothing pretty about that but it sure is fun.

 

Pin It!
