Wowee What A RAK I Won!

I am super excited! I won the RAK of the August Scraps of Darkness Kit called "Midnight Garden" and all of the add ons! I just got my kit a few days ago and all I can say is wow! Melinda put together the most awesome kit. I am really impressed. I am looking forward to working with it this weekend. Thanks again to Melinda at Scraps Of Darkness! Check out their blog and from there the store. I am loving this months kit which features Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante.

Fun with Mardi Gras Masks

I have found a new love............ MASK MAKING! I signed up for a swap at for masks. Boy there is some real talent in this swap! My partner wanted purple, silver and black with a gothic look. I hope that she likes this! I sure had a lot of fun painting and blinging it up. Would love to hear your opinions on this one too!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Twilight and Halloween ATCs

These ATCs are for a Twilight themed swap at Pages in Time. Jacob and Edward are shown in an earlier August post and I finally got my inspiration for Bella tonight. In my mind, she is a girl with a secret (or two!). I made a watercolor background and added the secret magazine cover. Then Bella needed bling!

I am having a wonderful time making ATCs. These three 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ATCs are for a Pages in Time Swap. The background is paper I made from a black and white tree photograph I took and printed at Craft Sassy. I topped that with vintage images and labels. Each has a bow or a brass embellishment to add dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Two Layouts from One Sketch

I just finished up a blog challenge for Scraps of Darkness! I loved the sketch so much I did it again.
This sketch is by Flying Unicorn (aka Alda) whose sketches I adore.

First the LO for Scraps of Darkness:
The challenge as listed on the Scraps of Darkness Blog is:

1. Between today, September 2, 2010, and September 14, 2010, create a "dark" layout. Think dark colors, dark subjects, such as Twilight or horror movies. Think Halloween, vampires, witches, or whatever you think of as a "dark" layout.

2. Post your layout on your blog or in whatever scrapbook galleries you normally post in.

3. Mention that your layout was done for the Scraps of Darkness blog challenge, with a link back to this blog.

4. Leave a comment on this post telling us where to find your layout, with a link to it.

So about the darkest non-Twilight photo I had handy was one of DS and me last Halloween. We are a couple of Jokers!
I used black, red and purple as my dark colors and really tried for a haunted spooky look. You can let me know how I did!

Speaking of Twilight, Preston and I met Solomon, who played Sam in the first Twilight Movie a few weeks ago. Preston was thrilled to meet a real actor. Here is the photo and the LO I did with it! How many of you are jealous? Admit it!
