Hello girls! 

I am dropping in to share my latest creation with the January 
Scraps of Elegance kit. I love vintage photos with a passion and I found this
beautiful photo of one of my favourite ladies...the English author Daphne du Maurier.


To read more about Ms du Maurier please go here. My favourite book by her is Jamaica Inn...it's one of those stories that stays with you long after you have read it.....

The papers in this kit are so gorgeous,
this one is called 'Euphoria' from the Rustic Harmony collection by Kaisercraft.

Here is the January kit...

Fo more info on where to buy these kits please go here...
To see all the amazing design team work please go here...

Here are some close ups...

From the kit I used the papers, the pink burlap, the wire heart, the Prima white resin, and one of the butterflies. From my stash I used some Prima flowers, string, and some Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.

A long time ago I found an old string of pearls that I had been saving for just the right project, as I was creating this layout I noticed the pearl necklace in the photo and I knew I had found the perfect spot for my vintage pearl beads :)

I also want to share the brand new kit for February called 'Lisa's Love Letters' in honor of Lisa Novogrodski, the DT Coordinator for Scraps of Elegance...please check out her beautiful blog here.

I just received this kit with all the add-ons and I can't wait to start playing with it...The paper add-on with this kit comes with the complete set of the new Blue Fern Studios collection 'Love Story'...yum! 

One more thing before I go...
