Muddy Puddle Boots

      "Molli with Umbrella" is the perfect opportunity to make a layout of my granddaughters playing in their rain boots. Since the girls are cousins, they have their own individual scrapbooks. For this reason, I made two of these layouts - identical. 
     When I reached into the envelope of Ecru card stock I found tons of Ecru circles that were leftovers from a layout I worked on last year in May called "Summertime Bicycles". Well I managed to work 6 of them in on EACH layout. Needless to say this was a huge influence on the design of this project.  

     The title was constructed on the Silhouette. I input the shapes of the tulips and the boot in order to incorporate the die cuts onto the mats. 

     This is the first time I have ever used a stencil on a layout. Here Mollie and one of the ducks are taking a stroll after a shower.

     I was going to sit this duck under the tree when I saw that he would look perfect in a swing. The construction for the swing is SUPER simple. I just cut a purple rectangle, punched it twice with a 1/16 inch hole punch, tied the knots under the swing. Pop dotted it to the page - letting the knots show, and used the small punch on the Crop-A-Dile Big Bite to punch the holes in the tree.

     The jean pockets are just right for a tag. I used the second smallest tag in the largest pocket. There are photos on both sides of the tag. 

     Here is one of the layouts with the pictures on it.
