Rainy Days

This layout was inspired by the lyrics challenge at Soul Scrappers:

Kaisercraft Prairie Lane - Woodshire patterned paper
Kaisercraft Pickled Pear - Thyme patterned paper
Kaisercraft The Looking Glass - Queen of Hearts diecut card
Otto washi tape
Tailored Foil Alphabet stickers

The title is taken from the lyrics of Sunny (Reed Deming):  Rainy days are passing by.  

Babinda rainfall information obtained from:

Another rainy-day Babinda layout:

Kaisercraft Prairie Lane - Woodshire patterned paper
Kaisercraft Marigold - Straw patterned paper
Kaisercraft Jade's Garden - Jasmyn patterned paper
Kaisercraft Enchanted - Rapture patterned paper
Bo Bunny Take a Hike buttons
DMC embroidery thread
Black satin ribbon

My layout was inspired by these challenges:

* Stuck?! Sketches ~ 15th June sketch

* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ Technique - Stitching
A lot of my layouts feature machine stitching, but I am away from home for a few weeks with limited scrapping supplies (and no sewing machine).  So for this layout I hand-stitched the buttons onto the page, and I added some cross-stitching to secure the photograph.

Thank you for visiting my blog!


  1. Love both of these layouts. The design and the colors. Brown is always challenging for me and these work so well.

  2. Really pretty layouts, love our take onthe sketch, that vibrant green striped patterned paper really makes your photo pop! Thanks for joining us at Stuck?! Sketches!

  3. I love the compass button...fabulous for a travel layout! The cross stitching is a nice touch! Thanks for playing along with Stuck?! Sketches!!!
