Layouts and a freebie again!!

so as some of you may know, i have dropped a lot of my responsibilities at Moo Two and because of that occasionally i get a little more time to myself. Sometimes with that time (usually the kids are asleep) I sometimes get to scrap layouts, other times i have to use it to catch up on chores or household stuff. Well, tonight my oldest fell asleep in the highchair while eating dinner, yep had to pick food out of his hand even! And finally my youngest fell asleep, he had been fighting it for several hours.
So, while my oldest slept on the floor on a blanket (yep we moved him) and my youngest snored away in their room I created 2 layouts for Dielle Designs, using her wonderful kit named "Bumbershoot" I just love that word! And it means Umbrella, so you can imagine that this kit is full of great rainy day items. Here is a great preview of it:

So here are my layouts:
This top layout shows a photo of my oldest playing in the rain at the Oregon Zoo with a little girl who was there. For the background paper I used papers from this kit but I overlay-ed them to create another paper that i felt would fit better with my photo, I also used another paper and created a clipping mask over the top of a frame shape for the frame. I used Fat Stack BB as my font for the date.
In the second layout, I wanted journaling but I also wanted 3 larger photos as well as word art, I placed my word art on top of a paper and then added my journaling one line (and occasionally one word) at a time to fit around the word art as well as the doodle, to fit in the space provided by the paper. I added the date and the names side ways on the edges of two layered papers. The journaling tells the story. It reads;
"At the Oregon Zoo we got trapped by the rain near the elephants. We had to wait for the rain to slow down to try to walk back to the car & go home. While we waited James couldnt hold back. He just had to run & jump in the puddles that were forming fast!"
Well, that's it for now and for taking a look you get a freebie I made while messing around with  photoshop.
