Scraps of Darkness September Reveal ~ The Black Album Kit ~

Hello Scrappy Friends! Today, I am sharing a layout created with the utterly fantastic Scraps of Darkness September Kit ~The Black Album~This kit includes beautiful paper lines this month from Teresa Collins "Memorbilia" paper collection and My Mind's Eye "Chalk Studio" collection, along with some beautiful black and white papers from Imaginisce's "Black Ice" collection.
For my first project, I did a layout using this month's sketch, designed by Suepup.  Stop by the Scraps of Darkness forums and play along with this month's sketch - you do not have to be a kit subscriber to play along and you could win a great prize!
The photo is of my son and was taken last Spring on a trip to the library (one of his favourite weekly excursions). It is such a cute photo and deserves to be the centre of attention on this layout - which is why the photos are the only colour on the layout! I did some masking with a Prima stencil and Shimmerz Texturez in Gritty Graphite and some misting with the Heidi Swapp mist (Tinsel) included in the Colour Add-on. Then some fun embellishing with some of the kit embellishments (how perfect is the frog on a bicycle flair button?!?!) and some items from my stash.
The September SOD kit is perfect for this month's bold, monochromatic mood board at the Scrap Around the World challenge blog - where I've been itching to play along, so I am submitting this layout for their challenge.

I am also submitting it for this month's Scrap Africa challenge - Washi Tape and Twine!

I can't wait to get back to creating with this kit - it has SO many possibilities! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Fabulous page. Love how you have embraced the black/neutral colour scheme and added the silver. If you would like to be considered for a prize or to be featured at Scrap Around The World Sarah, you need to pop up a picture of our mood board here on your blog tho ( it's the rules, sorry ). Any way thanks so much for playing along with our challenge at Scrap Around The World.
