Scraps of Darkness Reveal *May kit*

Here it is, the moment we have all been waiting for, the first kit I got to design with!! This May kit from Scraps of Darkness is called Now and Zen. It has an Asian flair that can go in many directions, which I hope you can see by the pages I made. None other than Scraps of Darkness would come up with such an awesome and unique theme!!! Enjoy!!!!!

Here is the coolest sketch that comes with this kit, made by Charlotte (Suepup).

This is what I came up with using her sketch titled "Calm". I took my kids on a photo shoot by our city fountain. This is Gisselle posing so sweetly under a gazebo in April 2011.

These are the chopsticks that came with the kit made by Mandy. They are the neatest embellishes ever!!! I cut up some leaves I had from some fake flower arrangements I had from my stash to make my "bamboo leaves". I also added some of the fake flowers too.

With these Creative Imagination papers, I had to make a whimsical page, cutting out all the different designs to make a "Moonlight Walk" theme. This is Gisselle in her Halloween costume in 2010.

These bamboo sticks are a must have in anyone's stash. I love them.

I misted the crane with a few of the mists I got in the color add on. Those lantern charms came from my stash.

I had to make a meditation page to go with this kit. I titled it "Zen". This is me in April of 2011.

I did some masking and used some of the rub ons that came with the kit. The Buddha charm and purple flowers are from my stash.

Here is my secret!! I got puppies!! Their names are Angel (right) and K-Oz (left) and they are 3 month old Maltipoos. They are the cutest little pups ever. I fell in love instantly and couldn't pick between the 2 of them, so we ended up bringing them both home. My kids hearts are overflowing with joy. So this is my introduction to my new family members, titled "Puppy Love". This picture was taken as soon as they arrived home on April 29th 2011.

I had to do a little lacing and a whole lot of distressing to show off this sweet photo. Some of the flowers came from older kits.
