A soggy start

This rain is unbelievable!!  The thunder and lightning woke me up and it hasn't slowed down yet.  I read somewhere yesterday that pools in Wisconsin were overflowing because of so much rain....well, we are about an inch away from that happening here!  There is so much water around here, I need a boat.  Either that or just stay in and scrap....hmmm.....

I was hoping to get lots done today, but I can't believe it's almost 8 o'clock!  Where did my morning go???

First up is a beautiful sketch from Sketches in Thyme by Monma.  I had to check out her blog....she is AMAZING!!  Check it out!

So here is my take on the latest sketch.  I used some papers from Bella Blvd - Man of the House, along with some chipboard pieces and the flowers.  The leaves are from Prima, and I'm not sure if I like them or not....any thoughts??

The metal frames are from K&Company from years ago.  I love it when I finally find a use for this stuff!  And it qualifies for the challenge at Practical Scrappers - anything over a year old.

So now I have pictures all over the table that I would love to work on today. 
Wish me luck!!  The laundry is crying for attention, but if I turn the music up louder, it should drown it out, right??  


  1. Wonderful take on the sketch Wendy. Sorry about all the rain you have gotten. In my neck of the woods, Maryland it is bone dry and 100 degree weather. Though we do not want the deluge of rain you all have received, we are in dire need of some! Keep you spirits up and keep those beautiful layouts coming!

  2. Wendy - I think the leaves work for this layout. Ordinarily I don't think I'd be crazy for them, they are an "off" color but they match the papers perfectly! i LOVE the metal frames! Isn't it great using up some older stuff!

  3. Beautiful layout! I love the rich earthy tones you used in this one! Great photos...and I do like the leaves, they work great with your papers and flowers.
    Thanks sweet friend for playing along again this week at Practical Scrappers and Sketches in Thyme.
