Scraps of Elegance Blog Hop Announcement and Reveal Kickoff!!!

You may know Scraps of Darkness already, she is on the edge and daring side and is always the "pushing the envelope" kit of diversity.

Now we would like to introduce you to her new sister---"Scraps of Elegance", she is the alter ego of her sister club.  Her style is more on the sweet and romantic side…a true classic beauty!

Today is the reveal of our very first "Scraps of Elegance" kit!



We've carefully chosen these beautiful papers from Kaisercraft's "Sweet Nothings" Collection, Webster's Pages "Western Romance", Collection, and some Melissa Frances's "5th Avenue" Collection.  We have also added some wonderful embellishments and unique vintage items for you to create something beautiful to compliment your most treasured photos.
