Scraps of Darkness Reveal *April Kit*

It is the best time of the month again!  Reveal Day, over at Scraps of Darkness.  This April kit is called "Sakurabana" meaning cherry blossom in Japanese.  "The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it
would not be a wasted life". ~ quote from The Last Samurai, spoken by Katsumoto

This kit contains  papers from Bo Bunny's Serenity collection,  papers from
Glitz Design's Happy Travels collection and papers from Fabscrap's
Classic collection.  Also, new Prima, Zva and of course some unique items as well.  Don't forget, add-ons!!!

This is the monthly sketch by Suepup, which never disappoints!

This is my take on the sketch.  The tones in my photo inspired the paper selection for this page.  I titled this "Devotion".  The photo was taken on our anniversary on Feb 29, 2012.
I used some of the Bo Bunny papers mixed with Fabscraps lots of Zva bling and some of the new Prima. 

I colored my Dusty Attic flourish with Lindy's mist (color add-on) and placed some Zva bling for added interest.  Those flowers and leaves are from the Flora & Fauna add-on.

Those felt flowers are the new Prima in the main kit.

Of course with the darker colors, I had to make a dark romantic lo.  I used more Fabscraps papers with one from Bo Bunny.  I designed this to be a sideways corset.  The title "A Decade of Love" refers to the length of time we have been together.  The photo was taken on our anniversary, Feb 29, 2012.
That gorgeous big flower is by Prima (flora & fauna add-on).  The black flowers are also part of the flora & fauna add-on.  The metal black flower is a Bo Bunny trinket  (romance add-on).   The black lace was part of the romance add-on as well.
 This beautiful locket is a Prima trinket (romance add-on), that holds photos of my dh and I when we first met, hence a decade of love.  The pin is by Craftysprinkles and is part of the romance add-on every month.  The sparkly black flower is Prima (flora & fauna add-on).  The Zva bling is part of the main kit.
