Rainy days

My husband's work is mostly weekend only, and it is weather-dependent.  So we don't spending many weekends together as a family.  When we do, it's usually terrible weather - not ideal for outings.           Beautiful weather + light winds = perfect work conditions = no family outings.
Rain + cloud and/or strong winds = no work = family weekend!
We usually end up going somewhere anyway, regardless of the weather.

I like using bright colour combinations to lift the 'grey' of all of our rainy day photographs, so I really enjoyed the Scrap the Boys colour challenge this month, with the colours of GREEN BLUE and YELLOW

This is my layout:

It took me ages to fussy-cut the flourishes but I'm really happy with how it turned out:

Memento Pluie/Rain patterned paper
Scenic Route Metropolis - Butler Street patterned paper
Pink Paislee Ambrose - Licorice alphabet stickers
Purple Pumpkin Carnival Tickets - blue & green
Sassafras Lass Mix n Mend - Fancy Free patterned paper
Robins' Nest Tear Drops - Sunflower Seeds
