Scraps of Darkness kit club

I recently became a member of the "Scraps of Darkness" kit club. I received my first kit in the mail in record time, and started scrapping with it - it's entitled "Welcome to the Jungle" and features BoBunny's Zoology line. I will share those layouts with you in my next post, but wanted to tell you how wonderful everyone is over at the "dark side!" After I signed up for the kit club, I went over to their message board and introduced myself. I received a very warm welcome, I might add. I merely mentioned that I was looking for paper and embellishments from their "Now and Zen" kit from May because I thought it would be perfect to scrap photos of Anne. And POW! I received so many message with tips on where to find things and even had offers to send me things from their own stash. I am telling you, if you are thinking about joining a kit club, give Scraps of Darkness a try - you won't be disappointed!

Their site is as follows:

The first page that I created using the gifts sent to me from my wonderful new friends! I love, LOVE this paper. I especially liked the paper with the lanterns on - so pretty!

The second page I created was with a recent photo of Anne at age 8. I was waiting to scrap it with just the right papers, and found them when I received this gift in the mail!

I think that this next page is my most favorite of all! The photo is taken at the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou, China right after we adopted Anne. She was just getting out of the bath tub, and looking so sweet. She has been, and still is, a very happy girl.

I used photos of Anne at a beach at Hilton Head Island for this next page - they were taken in October of 2006, when she was just 2 years old. My sister and brother in law won a week's stay at a condo there, and asked us to join them. The pictures that I got of Anne on the beach were so cute!!!!

This is the last page that I created using the "Now and Zen" kit with the things that the awesome ladies sent me in the mail - from their OWN stash, I might add:

The photos were taken at my sister, Karen's and my birthday on September 30, 2006. Anne was such a cutie back then, and still is. She is growing up so quickly!!


So just to reiterate: (and sorry about repeating myself) if you are thinking about joining a scrap booking kit club, run, don't walk, over to Scraps of Darkness. The prices are very reasonable, the service is speedy, and the design team is very talented, and the women are incredibly friendly and nice!

Thanks so much! I hope you are having a great summer so far. It has gone by way to quickly, hasn't it? I can't believe that we are almost in the middle of July already.
