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.

One of a Kind Costumes

It's almost Halloween so I figured I ought to scrap these really old photos of our younger boys trying on costumes that we had received from a friend of the family.  Her boys are adults now but back in the day when they were young, she took the time to make amazingly crafted costumes for them.  She passed them along to me when her boys had outgrown them and I have saved them all these years until our boys could wear them.  They've outgrown most of them now too but when these photos were taken, they could fit into most of them and they had so much fun trying them all on - mixing and matching them just for fun.  It was an evening full of giggles.
Supplies Used: Cardstock – Bazzill (swiss dot) & The Paper Co.; Enamel dots - My Mind’s Eye; Ink – ColorBox (Green) & StazOn (Timber Brown); Patterned paper – Echo Park Paper Co.; Pen – Zig Writer (Chocolate); Stamps – Studio AE by Technique Tuesday; Stickers – Echo Park Paper Co.; Tags – Jenni Bowlin & Michaels; Wood veneers – Studio Calico
This years costumes are partially ready.  Both boys are going to be "Steve" from Minecraft.  We have the heads and swords but I have to figure out what they are going to wear on the rest of their bodies...I wish I had more time to build them a square body to match the character.  Who knows, maybe I'll get some inspiration and get to crafting something before next Thursday.  
Pin It!
