A Rainy Day

There's nothing worse for a middle-schooler than rain on the first day of school.  Your Mom makes you wear that yucky raincoat and sometimes carry an unbrella and you can't stand at the bus stop and catch up with you schoolmates.  However, a rainy first day is the best for a scrapbooking Mom.  You see, in middle school you are just NOT allowed to go to the bus stop EVER.  And for you to be seen taking pictures on the first day of school,  how embarrasing and uncool.  However it is cool to be driven to the bus stop on a rainy day. So this scrapbooking Mom was able to sneak pics (from the car window) of her middle-schooler getting on the bus on the first day of school.

To title my layout I used the Exclusive Buggy Designs April Showers die and the Merry and Bright font.  I think the little boots are just too cute.  This 4x4 die also includes a folded umbrella.  I applied Glossy Accents over the puddle and raindrops to give them a "wet" look.

Other supplies:
KI Memories Patterned Paper & Ribbon
Bazzill Cardstock
Creative Imaginations License Plate
Jenni Bowlin Tiny Alphabets
Ranger Glossy Accents
QK Raindrops Die RS-0150

This year we'll be starting High School.  Maybe I should hope for rain LOL.
