Beauty and her Daddy with Scraps of Darkness April kit

May is Cystic Fibrosis awareness month!
 Many you of you may know my sweet niece,Vivien, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as a newborn and you have seen her grow up to be a fun loving 4 year old. Today was the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's fundraiser, Great Strides, where our families come together, donate funds to CF research and walk. Our team, Viver's Givers was one of the top fundraisers-since our first walk 5 years ago, we have raised over $50,000 toward a cure. So Vivi had the honor of cutting the ribbon to start our walk this morning!

Using the official colors of the CFF (hence the Tye-dye colors) , I created this layout of Vivi and my brother, one of the most awesome Dads around who will wear a beast costume at home dancing or at Disney.

I am really loving the colors and rich tones in the Scraps of Darkness April Kit, named "Laura's Wish" for our awesome Media Coordinator, Laura Gilhuly. 

The add-on kit has this cool circle stencil, which I colored with gelato after using texture paste. The butterflies were punched out of the patina patterned paper. I loved the large die cut circle and chose to position it on the side so I could bring in the smaller photos.

So many fun pieces to fussy cut and layer!

How sweet are little frames? Perfect for my wallet size pics of Belle dancing with her "Beast" aka Daddy. Like most 4 year olds she dreamed of meeting the princesses and her dream came true last fall as she got star treatment as a special guest at Disney World.

Thanks for stopping by! For more information about CF and Vivi's personal struggles click on the highlighted links above. Be sure to check out the Scraps of Darkness store and come join us on Facebook for fun, challenges and inspiration!
