You are the Twinkle in My Eye

Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you had a wonderful week.  I worked pretty hard this week at my "real" job.  Not much time for scrapping lately.  However, I did finish up this sweet layout using the wonderful Scraps of Darkness February kit "Our Story".  I chose this week to feature my sweet grandson Cameron asleep on his Daddy's chest.  I just love these sweet, quiet moments, which with this little guy are very few LOLO!

The kit is intermingled with the gorgeous Blue Fern Studies (BFS) "Memoires"  and Prima "Love Clippings" collections.  I chose the BFS paper for the background and inked and stamped it using the Bella Clear Stamp (Main Kit) and added a little gesso splatters.  I matted my photo with various papers from both collections and tucked in some journaling notecards included in the Main Kit.  I also fussy cut the little embellishment that runs down the vertical strip on the left side of the photo that comes in the Prima notecards (Main Kit). 

I had the adorable heart chipboard from my stash that I painted with the Art Alchemy acrylic paint "Metallique Royal Red" that came in a previous kit.  It gives a really nice shine.  Perfect for the chipboard!!

On the left side of the photo at the bottom I created a sweet flower cluster which has a little bird image that I fussy cut from one of the BFS papers "Calling Cards" in the center.  I used the flowers from Prima "Vintage Emporium" collection which are included in the Floral Add On.  I also added some Finnebar Art Stones around the cluster and in other areas of the layout that came in a previous kit. 

On the top right side I added a fussy cut butterfly from a VERY old Scraps of Elegance kit, and tucked in a little flower from a previous kit. 

The little title was fussy cut from one of the Prima 6x6 "Love Clippings" paper pad that comes in the Creativity Add On.  I used another phrase at the top of the photo from the same paper. 

I hope you enjoyed my layout and how I created it.  It was so much fun, as it always is using the Scraps of Darkness monthly kits.  I encourage you to consider joining us.  You cannot believe all the fabulous goodies that come with the kit and all of the Add Ons that help you to create your own "Love Story".  

Till next time.......
