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.

Trying to Catch Up

I have a few layouts and several cards that need sharing here on my blog but my days seem to be quite full lately.  I'm going to try to pop in here quickly and at least get some images up to share with you.
This layout highlights boy #2's first pair of glasses.  Everyone in our family except the youngest wears glasses so I figured it was only a matter of time before this one started wearing them...now if we could only figure out a way to keep from leaving them at school when we need them at home or leaving them at home when they're needed at school. 
Supplies used:  Die cuts – Chic Tags, Elles Studio, Fancy Pants & craft supplies; Enamel dots – Doodlebug Designs Inc.; Ink – SEI Chalk Ink (Cocoa) & Smooch Spritz (Log Cabin); Letter stickers – Thickers (Jewelry Box); Paper Clips – Tim Holtz; Patterned Paper – Fancy Pants & We R Memory Keepers; Pen – ZigWriter (Chocolate); Stickers – Fancy Pants, October Afternoon & craft supplies
I mixed some old and new in on this one.  I outlined almost everything I added to the layout to help it pop off the darker blue background.  The big heart sticker said "a face only a mother could love" but I didn't like that sentiment for this layout so I placed some tiny alpha stickers over the "only" and replaced it with "this".  Now it reads "a face this mother could love".  This was a pretty quick layout and in retrospect I think I would have chosen a different title like A Sight for Sore Eyes...that's okay.  The photos and story behind them are documented and that is what is important.
Pin It!
