~I Squeezed One More - Scraps of Darkness & Dusty Attic~

Ok so I thought I was all done with the August kit from Scraps of Darkness, but I managed to squeeze one more page using a little of August and July kits.  I also added some of the newer chippies from Dusty Attic.  I wanted to enter the two month long Skeletons challenge over at SOD which ends on the 15th.  This challenge was to take a well known phrase along with an image that goes along with that and tell how it applies to my life.  So my phrase is "Glass Half Full" (I know it's not the whole phrase, but I figured a section of it would due).   I based this on a sketch from Stuck on You Sketches.  
 Some close ups!

 I added some of the newer chippies from Dusty Attic!!  These are the small leafy stems and I inked them and used some distress stickles over the top.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
