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.
