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.

On The Lake

I'm determined to get the photos from this vacation we took as a family back in 2010 (oh my) put on to layouts.  Not sure how I neglected to take care of them sooner but they obviously got overlooked - or maybe I just wasn't inspired at the time.  Needless to say, they are getting taken care of now.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Bazzill (Kraft); Enamel dots - Dooblebug Design; Ink - StazOn (Timber Brown); Journaling card - Echo Park Paper Co.; Patterned paper - Doodlebug Design & Echo Park Paper Co.; Pen - ZigWriter (Chocolate); Stickers - Echo Park Paper Co. & October Afternoon; Thread - Aunt Lydia's Carpet Thread; Title - Chic Tags; Wood Veneers - Studio Calico
I have noticed that many of the pictures from this trip aren't fantastic and maybe that is what dissuaded me from putting them into my books.  In hindsight, I don't really care how good the pictures are, it's more the story they tell that I want to hang on to.  It was a great trip seeing some amazing sights, spending lots of time with my siblings, parents and uncle and those are the things I want to be reminded of when I look back through my scrapbooks.  
Pin It!

You are right, it is what the pictures remind us of that counts. I often use less than perfect pictures, and I've got much older trips than yours still to be scrapped. I really love your title work here. Nicely done.
