MONSOON

Scrapping the Music is challenging us to use Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole as inspiration this month. I love his version!
I took some cool pictures of a monsoon storm we had about a week ago. The top pictures are of our backyard and the bottom ones are of the front yard. I rounded the corners on the front yard pictures to differentiate them from the backyard.

I started looking through my stash for some rainbow inspired supplies and found this embossed rainbow paper by love, elsie. I doodled over the embossing to make the sun and clouds stand out -- I actually didn't see a rainbow after this storm but whenever it rains it feels like I have a rainbow in my heart.

I traced one rainbow with markers to make it a focal point and journaling spot. Can you tell I was petting Stellaluna while taking photos of this scrapbook page?

When I was a kid I thought it was kind of dumb when I heard grown-ups talking about the weather. I may have even vowed to myself never to do it when I became a grown-up, and use infinitely more interesting topics of conversation with others. Here I am now making an entire scrapbook page about weather! Yes, I find weather interesting. How can you not when a 15 minute downpour sends water flooding down your street and creates 2 extra swimming pools in your backyard?

interesting to scrap the weather--I know a few other people that find weather interesting, but now you are the only one I know who scraps about it! Interesting to use that song from a tornado movie to scrap about a monsoon!

I still cringe at myself talking about the weather ;). Love your layout, the photos, the doodling!

giggle, I hear you girl!!! I think its an inevitability that we talk about things when we're older that we thought were so mundane when we were kids!!!

(my hair stylist will not go out in the rain b/c it takes her 2 hours to put her look together, so the weather is mighty important to her!!!)

I love your doodling too!!!

thanks for playing along at scrapping the music!
