Eternal Love

The following layout was also made with the April kit from Scraps of Darkness.  This Easter I was inspired by my faith and belief in God to do something commemorating the resurrection of Jesus.  Easter, to me, is not about bunnies, eggs, and all that.  The one photo on this page is graphic, and I used it because I believe that it is realistic of what really happened to Jesus.  I've included scripture verses to support the message. 
Here are some closeup shots of the scripture verses I used on this LO:
 
 
 
This is one that I plan to frame & place on the wall of my scrap room to remind me of the price that was paid for all.  Happy Easter and may God bless you!

Travel Through the Pages of Time

Now back to scrappiness!!  This LO was done with the Scraps of Darkness April Kit "Foundations".  This is truly a beautiful kit.  Don't get me wrong, there hasn't been one I haven't liked!  However, this one is full of scrappy indulgence with the Bo Bunny Timepiece line, and lots of other great embellies.  This is a pic of my father when he was a baby back in April, 1943.  My Grandmother kindly gave me many photos of my dad and mom so that I would have them to keep.  Thanks for looking!

I didn't disappear...

Wow, I've been absent from my passion for so long!  However, it was for good reason.  I've been helping my wonderful hubby remodel our bathroom.  Since we were only able to work on it during evenings and weekends as we both work full-time, it took us 2 months to complete the project.  Then, after all that hard work we had to go on vacation to relax.

Here is what our bathroom looked like when we bought our home:
And here is what it looks like now:


And here is a shot of us relaxing in Key West with my brother and sister-in-law:


We had a great time and can't wait to go back there again!
