Scraps of Darkness *Jan Kit* ~ An Island Jewel

This tropical dream of my mom's late honeymoon in Hawaii was made using the "Escape" kit from Scraps of Darkness.  This design was based off of Monique's (Rubymillerand) Happy Birthday page in the RR challenge over at SOD.  And this page turned into quite a challenge for me personally, but I finally went forward with it and completed it.  These photos of my mom were taken in March 1960.

I did some fussy cutting from the G45 papers and used some of the chippies.  I tried to darken my fish net, but it didn't work out.  The tumbled glass was smashed with my hammer to make tiny pebbles.
These Kaisercraft flowers have wire behind them, so I was able to tie them to the net.


  1. Very nice. The netting is arranged perfectly. Nice elements with the pictures of your Mom.

  2. Soooo pretty! Love how all the tropical colours pop on that white background! Fab page, CHeryl!

  3. love the netting and flowers! Another beautiful page!
