I highly suggest you check out this monthly Kit Club SCRAPS OF DARKNESS...I love the concept...for THE ALTERNATIVE SCRAPPER.

3. Scraps of Darkness Kit Club.

Over the next month I will be sharing several projects using 
materials from My Guy Kit. I would like to share with you the 
LO I created using the September challenge sketch included with 
the kit. It was perfect to create a LO around my father,
the man I called POP. He was such a snappy dresser, amongst other
intriguing things about 15 he was playing in The Cotton 
Club in Harlem, as President of his student government he introduced
Robert Frost to the student body at SUC at Fredonia, NY and saw 
Toscanini's last performance...just to name a few.

Kit ingredients used:
