We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  

First let me say that, my kit is held up in costums, so I bought a few sheets of the Prima paper that is in the kit at my LLS. So, for my projects I have used different embellies
(from previous kits or from the Swirlydoos Boutique)
But here's what I've come up with so far.

This is my little grandson, Levi. He and his mom and dad were with us, during our summer vacation and of course grandpa and grandma, bought him a sandbox
(don't know if that is the right word for it)
He didn't know what to do with the sand at first, but later he enjoyed it.
Tag Set
 Gosh, how much I love these beautiful Prima papers. Vintage Shabbyness I call them.
Here are the tags one by one:
 To get that splash effect at the left top, I used Distress Stain in Antique Linen and I made sure that the dabber was loaded with ink and then I just dabbed once, not so gently, onto my paper. The ink splashed around and I really love the effect it gave. Then on top I dabbed some Distress Paint, using my finger.
 Nothing to say about this one. Just fussy cut the oval and flowers, raised the oval from the tag using cardboard underneath.. And then I glued (Beacon 3 in 1) some pearl strand around it, and added a few flowers.
I think that this is my favorite!
I did some stenciling on the right side and made a faux envelope-fold. The metal coin is something that I found and I just treasured it for a long time. It was time to put it to use.
The feathers are also from a "pick up" from the ground whilst we were at the zoo.
The lace, I don't know the brand, cause I picked that up at a local flea market.
Blanco Card
 Everyone who knows me, knows I just love to work with scraps. I love to puzzle with those little snippets!
Take Time To.....

Another sample of playing with scraps. These were excess-corners, from a cutout circle. I glued them togehter and made it look like I had cut out an oval, just for this card. I love how it came out. The lace was died with Distress ink in Tattered Rose. After I completed my card I gave it a little extra glim, by using Iridescent Medium in random places.
