Love **Scraps Of Darkness-December Kit-Winter's Eve**

I think I am slowly getting back to normal and caught up after the Holidays, at least as caught up as I can ever hope to be-lol! I hope each of you had a wonderful Holiday season with your family and friends. I know I did! It just seems so hard to get back on schedule, but I must say I have been looking forward to a little scrappy time. I took over a week off, and it felt like forever! This month's Scraps Of Darkness kit was so incredibly gorgeous, I just feel like I didn't have the time to thoroughly enjoy it. I did manage to put this layout together yesterday and got it all glued down and ready to go today. I know my new kit is on it's way and wanted to get at least one or two more out of this one.

The following layout is one that features a photo of my sweet niece Megan when she was around 2 years old. Hard to believe she is now 22, and married. In our world of boys and tomboys, Megan was always my girlie girl. So adorable!!

I started with a piece of the Bo Bunny Enchanted paper from the kit. I then took a second piece of pp from that line and fussy cut it out for the bottom layer of my design. I layered a Dollie that I misted with some Tattered Angels mist on top. I took some white rose ribbon from my stash and ran it across the page.

I added Meg's precious photo in and then took the chipboard gate from the kit, inked it silver and popped on a stash Prima flower, a Shabby White Texture Rose from my Etsy Shop, sprayed some of the Prima canvas mistable pieces from the Color Add On and cut it apart tucking the leaves behind the rose, attached one of my Cranberry Ice Butterflies from my Etsy Shop, and then tucked in a feather for softness.

I Stickled popped a piece of the Bo Bunny chipboard from the kit onto the photo corner and then took a larger piece of the chipboard and attached it to the other side of the photo adding a Prima flower from the Flora And Fauna add on into the center, and then attached another Cranberry Ice Butterfly on.
I created a large floral collage using  some stash Prima flowers, some White Shabby Texture Roses from my Etsy, some of the misted Prima canvas from the C.A.O.  that I cut into pieces, and some more feathers at the bottom of the photo.

To complete the layout I layered on some Prima Say It In Crystals from the Romance add on, added a large Cranberry Ice Butterfly, and created the title with some of the Bo Bunny chipboard from the kit.

This kit made creating a beautiful layout seem easy. So many inspiring and wonderful papers and embellishments! Thank you Melinda for giving us such gorgeousness to work with, and thank you for letting me share it with you! Internet Hugs, ~Renea
