Lucas – Scraps of Darkness February “Victoriana” kit


I have been taking a bit of a creative break….organizing….cleaning…getting my house in order so to speak!  BUT, in the midst of all the work I have accomplished, organizing “My So-Called “life” (loved that show btw) –  I cleaned and organized my creating space…well, after that,  I had to stop and create!  Nothing really inspires me more than organizing my crafty stuff! and with that said…here is a layout I created in the midst of all the work, using the exquisite February kit from www.scrapsofdarkness.com called,  “Victoriana.” I was totally inspired by the Color Room’s Sketch/color palette #97  for the creation of this!

 This is my sweet nephew Lucas…back in 2005 when we went to Washington State for my grandpa’s funeral.   This photo was taken at the top of Mt. Rainier….in the parking lot of the resort hotel.  Lucas has always been the sweetest child….wise, way-beyond his age!

Here are some up-close detailed photos:

Thanks for looking!
