Recently I spent some time searching for an online site to purchase the “It’s Raining, It’s Pouring” Collection by Nikki Sivils. For Christmas I bought myself some new scrapbooking papers! I just adored this cute little turtle that the collection features and a variety of rain boots! I lucked out and it arrived just a few days ago. I created this fun layout of my son playing in the rain, by using several of the elements that come with the collection. I love the papers that I can cut out borders and other embellishments to jazz up my page! Just look how cute that turtle is? I also cut apart a border of rain boots by the pairs and over layered them to add a fun design to my page. I cut out a cloud and placed it over the turtle and used it as my journal block. I have so much leftover I’m already working on the next page.
