Use Your Stuff #181 - April Showers

Happy Monday! The countdown for the last day of school has officially begun in our house. Just 20 more school days and the boys will be free for the summer! We are all excited about that.

The new challenge is up over on the Use Your Stuff blog today. The challenge for this week is - April Showers - anything that has water on it.

I have made a layout about a big rain that we got several years ago. So much rain that it flooded the road below our house. That almost never happens!

Shane was in heaven! He loves water and one of his favorite pastimes has always been throwing rocks into puddles, ponds or creeks! You can just tell by the pictures that he is in awe of so much water in the road.

I used a couple of different Echo Park paper collections - A Boy's Life and That's My Boy - for my paper strips, and I used an old downloadable sketch from Scrapbook Generation.

I will be linking this up over at Crash Your Stash - round 2 of 50 Projects - #7/50.

Be sure to check out the Use Your Stuff blog and see the fun projects the rest of the team created. There are so many different interpretations of this challenge that you're sure to be inspired!

Thanks so much for stopping by - I'll be back soon!


  1. Fabulous page!! LOVE the patterned papers! And what a neat memory to scrap!! Hope you didn't have too much damage!! And 20 days until summer - so lucky!! We have until mid June, but I realize that we probably start later than you do!!

  2. Wonderful layout! Such a great story to tell and I love how you chose to tell it with the kraft paper and the perfect patterned paper and embellishments! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Enjoy your countdown to summer! My son is especially excited for the end of school this year since he's graduating 8th grade!

  3. I love the story behind your layout. Thanks for sharing, and good luck on reaching your next goal of 50. Looks like your really on your way to it!
