another paper smooches layout

i almost completely forgot to post this layout! i made it earlier this month for the july sparks challenge at paper smooches! but then i got busy and posted other things...yikes! lol! oh well, at least there's still time to enter it! :)

i used the cool shades below:

i had been wanting to scrap this event for a while, because it was just so fun! here's the scene: my little one just HAD to have these monkey rain boots. and once he had them, he wore them everywhere. to the store, in the house, to hockey, etc. rain or shine. and mostly shine, there was a span of a few months when we didn't get any rain! so he wasn't able to test them out! then one day it was a beautiful rain and he had a ball! the monkey rain boots finally paid off! :)

anyway, i made a pocket of sorts at the bottom of the layout for the 'journaling'. thanks to danielle at girlracer scrap for that suggestion! i spelled the word 'splash' with some awesome vinyl thickers - LOVE thickers! :)

the monkey was cut out from the create a critter cartridge for the cricket. and it's so cute! and really, that's why put in the little backstory, because otherwise you may be like...what's the monkey have to do with rain puddles? :)

i used the 'let's play' stamp from the 'chubby chums' stamp set and used it as a sort of border at the bottom of the page. add in some popped up clouds and heart shaped rain...and well. you know, that's all she wrote! :)

enjoy! :)


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
