Yes, we got some MUCH needed rain over the weekend, but that's not what I'm talking about.

It would be the title of the layout I'm about to show you. When I participated in the Superbowl Challenge at Paper Petal Memories on Superbowl weekend, the few layouts I managed to get done fell under some of the challenges we were given.

We had one challenge in which we were paired with someone else. My partner looked through my gallery and found some things to challenge me on, to push me outside of my box a little. She decided my recent layouts had been on the neutral side and challenged me to use LOTS of color. And lots of flowers.

So that's what I did.

I pulled out the colors from Ruthi's dress. It was a VERY colorful dress, so it was easy to use lots of color here!

I used my Cricut to cut the flowers.
The quote says,
"Let me play in the sunshine, let me sing for joy. Let me grow in the light, let me splash in the rain, and remember the days of childhood forever."
I painted the chipboard (Rain). It started out a pale pink color which didn't match, so I changed it to yellow. That was another of the challenges as well - to use paint somewhere on a layout.
