Good Morning My Friends,  Today is our reveal day for our January kit "Waterways" here at Scraps Of Darkness and I'm sharing some projects that I created using this exotic kit.

And here's a photo of the kit which includes some yummy papers from the Glitz Designs "Uncharted Waters Collection, Pink Paislee's "Portfolio" Collection, along with papers from Authentique's "Renew" Collection.  This is a really fun and exotic collection.

And here's the beautiful sketch for this month from our very one, ever-talented Suepup (Charlotte).

And here's my take on the sketch for January.  These are some photos of my family boating on Lake Tahoe a few years ago during one of our annual camping trips…so fun.  I used a combo of the Pink Paislee "Portfolio" collection and the Authentique's "Renew" collection.

For the next layout using this kit I used the Pink Paislee "Portfolio" collection and some of the Authentique goodies.  This is a photo of my oldest grandson Kenneth with his buddies.  They were playing video games all day last summer, and I gave them "orders" to go outside and run through the sprinkler…that woke them up and the title Reall?…Seriously? is exactly what they said to me. lol!

For the following layout I used the beautiful Glitz Designs "Uncharted Waters" Collection.  I just loved the colors in these papers!  This is a photo of my handsome hubby Jack and his brother-in-law Bill walking on the beach in Hawaii a couple of years ago.  I made the banner and added some circles folded in half to add to it, and loved how this one came out.

And here's a close-up of the banner I added to the layout.

And here's the last layout I was able to get out before reveal.  For this project I again used the Pink Paislee's "Portfolio" collection.  I really enjoyed these papers, I thought they'd be a challenge, but they are really fun to work with!  This is my grandson Kenneth at Lake Tahoe last year and my #2 grandson Ethan with Kenneth in the small photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!
