Scraps Of Darkness Round Robin Go!!

Jennifer (JRABS) our host for the Round Robin over at Scraps Of Darkness is kicking off another fun filled round and offering up a RAK to any new players, plus a RAK to the winner,  so grab your scrappy stash and come play along!! I am kicking off for Team 1 with my partners in crime being:
Courtney (newtoscrapping)
Monique (RubyMillerand), and
Sonja (SonjaC)
Way to go Team 1 !!

Here is my layout titled "Play In The Sun." It features a photo of me and my son, Draven sitting on the beach in Destin, Florida, and was created with the gorgeous Scraps Of Darkness January Kit-Escape.

I started with some of the Authentique paper from this month's paper add on, and then made the border and the picture border from some of the Graphic 45 paper in the kit.

In the upper right hand corner, I cut out a corner with my Cricut Expression and then embossed it with some of the Lindy's Embossing Powder from this month's color add on, and added some of the Prima Bling from the kit. I then glittered up a butterfly and popped it in the corner over the lace piece I ran down the side. If you would like a copy of these butterflies on this layout, feel free to help yourself to them on my butterfly page on this blog.

To frame the photo, I cut out a rectangle of paper, cut slits into it with my scissors and rolled the ends.

I built a flower spray, by stamping and cutting out some Heartfelt Creations Rose Leaves, and stacking on some Prima flowers from my stash, a seashell that I filled with beads and some fussy cut flamingos from the G45 paper, some of the netting from the kit, one of the Tim Holtz charms from the Romance add on, another butterfly, and then tied some of the G45 chipboard pieces from the kit, onto the net.

I created a bottom left hand corner piece using the same technique as at the top.

Distressed and inked one of the Authentique Tabloids, popped on some sea shells, and another butterfly and attached it to the bottom, and that completed my layout.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you get a chance to play along! ~Renea
