Beautiful - Counterfeit Kit Challenge - April Showers

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday to you! Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am!

It's time for the first of two challenges at Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Challenge #1 - When we think of April we often think of April showers and the inspiration kit has a lot of weather elements included - rainbows, umbrellas, parasols, and sunglasses. Let's be inspired by the weather for this challenge!

Here is what I came up with:

I am so glad that I included the Pink Fresh Studios - Dream On - 6x6 paper pad in my kit because it was perfect for these photos. The die cuts are from the same collection. I also had this Heidi Swapp stamp set out on my desk and a couple of the sayings in it were perfect. I didn't feel like any of the few alphas that I included in my kit were right for this layout, so I pulled this gold glitter word for my title.

About the photos - we had severe thunderstorms roll through our area in May of 2017. A tornado touched down a mile or so from our house and we had such extreme wind! We lost half of our pear tree - it split right down the middle - and our trampoline was lifted up and blown about 100 yards into our neighbor's tree line. There were multiple trees down in our area - 2 or 3 across the roads. Talk about a scary day! Thankfully, none of us were hurt and there was no damage to the house - and at the end of the day, we were blessed with this beautiful - most vibrant rainbow that you would ever see. The photos do not do it justice!

Here is a close-up:
