Faimly Time ~ Scraps of Darkness

I truly hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families & friends.  I myself had an ongoing 3 days of never ending "excitement".  I really crashed afterward.  I am hoping for a relaxing New Year and wish you all the same.
I made this page for my family Christmas party that has been skipped the past 2 years due to my mom's passing on Dec 20, 2010.  Shame on us kids for skipping it last year!  Finally we came through and had one.  This page was my white elephant gift, which I did frame.  I wanted to see my siblings fight tooth and nail over this, since it is a very special memory of my mom's last Christmas in 2009, and of course because I made this lol.  My SIL is the one who unwrapped this and ran down the hallway to hide it, so no one would "steal" it from her.  Great reaction, right lol?
The papers, burlap and the Artisan swirl for used for the title are from previous Scraps of Darkness kits. 

I made this bow embrace the page, letting it flow some for 3D effects.  I tried to add different elements for 3D effects, since this was going to be framed, I had no worries of bulkiness.


  1. Good you scanned it and put it on your blog! Happy New Year Cheryl.

  2. Thanks for the visit. I am going to try a layout soon with all the lovely layers like you did here! Hope you are feeling ok!
