Here are some of my layouts that I created with this gorgeous kit! Each month, you get a sketch created by Sue Pup to inspire you:


 And this is my take on this month's sketch. I did flip the sketch 90 degrees clock wise and took my inspiration from that perspective;
 

This layout features a photo of my son, Draven with his Grammy. He is such a good hearted, young man and is so good to his Grandparents. He has always enjoyed spending time with his Grammy and drops by to help her out, to take her to eat, or just to keep her company.  The Pion and Anna Griffin papers were perfect for this layout, and the Flourish With A Bling Pearls were perfect accents to my chipboard pieces! All the flowers where from the Flourish add on except the centers on the daisies, those are Shabby Terra Cotta Texture Roses from my Etsy Shop. I have the honor of creating the Butterflies for the Scraps Of Elegance Kits, and the ones on this layout are my Harmony Butterflies that were created especially for the papers in this month's kit.
 

 
 Over in the Scraps Of Elegance and Scraps Of Darkness forums, we host a CUTE Challenge each month, and this is my fun play along with for that challenge. It features a photo of our Jack Russel "Jack" righ after we brought him home for Christmas, he was 5 weeks old and loved to nap in front of the fire place, belly-up, on his sherpa bed. The photo in the frame is one that I took of him with my son, Draven. The soft, sweet blues and creams int he Pion papers were a perfect match for the black and whites of Jack's coloring. I used lots of technique and layering with texture on this one.
 
Here are some close ups of some of the details:
 
 
I used painted corrugated board, Shimmerz paints, and seed beads along with the netting from the kit to create lots of texture behind the photo.
 
 
Here I used layers of torn tissue paper, netting from the kit, Dusty Attic bricks and snow tex to create visual interest.
 
 
I did lots of random stamping, with the Ingvlid Bolme Ink that was included in the embellishment add on to add dimension.
 
 
 
 I love Vintage Images, and this is one that I found on Pintrest and it worked so well with the sweet colors, and "little girl" theme of these Pion Papers. I love that Melinda gives us such unique items in our kits, like the trims from the Embellishment Add On that I twisted together and placed at the top corner and bottom for loads of texture.
 
And now, for the prize that I am giving away!!!! The winner of my blog hop will receive the following:
 
A $10.00 Gift Certificate from the Scraps Of Elegance Store, and a prize pack of the following butterflies that were created by me for the Scraps of Elegance kits!!
 
 
 
To win my prize, you must  **Become a follower of the Scraps of Elegance blog AND be a follower of my blog.  The winner will be announced here on my blog, September 4th, and you must respond to the announcement in order to claim your prize.
 
Happy Hopping!!
