Scrapping A Dark Photo

If you read yesterday's post, you saw this photo in the set of pictures that I wanted to scrap with my newest kit from Scraptastic. And these were the product picks I thought I'd use:


This picture was taken last year during Hurricane Isaac, after we lost our electricity. The constellation paper and shimmery stars made me think of those 123 hours without power, because after the storm went away, we were still in the dark for several days, with only flashlights, candles, the stars and the moon to give us light at night.

This is what ended up on my desk:


The mix of light and dark and the different hues of blue worked well, but I wanted a brighter pop of color. What better than a hurricane flag?!


 Altogether, this turned out better than I expected, and now a little bit more of the story is told. :)
