Save it for a Rainy Day....

I am so anxious for Spring to get here! I have been really slacking in the scraproom lately. All this rain and the rising and falling temperatures really put me in a deep depression. I could barely stay awake when I got home from work. I ordered some new pictures the other day with the hopes that I would be motivated.

The Paper Variety posted a challenge that inspired me to do something with this yucky weather. This photo was our inspiration for the April Showers bring May Flowers Challenge.

How funny is it that I hate this stuff but my kids love it! My little guy just celebrated his 4th birthday and was soooo excited when he unwrapped his new raincoat and umbrella! Never mind that fact that are both from Spiderman!

My little girl is wearing her Daddy's wellingtons from when he was her age. I can't believe these were
I popped these photos into Photoshop and made them all black and white. Then I created layers so I could change the colors of the wellingtons and make them stand out.

And speaking of saving things for a rainy day....these papers are from Around The Block from more than 5 years ago. I really thought they were fun and knew ONE DAY I would eventually use them. So I forced myself to do a little Spring cleaning ( took me a while to find them ) and put them to use. The rub on letters for the title are from Making Memories. I managed to find the exact font that was used on the background papers!

Now I have to get outside again to get pictures of my little guy dancing in the rain...
