I know, rain, right? But I live in the middle of the United States, right smack down in the center of the worst drought in recorded history. There's no wheat, there's no corn, there's no soybeans, there's no pasture, there's no hay. The ponds are dry, the creeks are dry, and the local river is well below normal. The cattlemen have sold all the cows they can afford to, the farms are being sold because they aren't able to keep them afloat. The local church has "pray for rain" posted on its marquee, and the television meteorologists begin each weather report with an apology. It's been horrible to watch.
Will this 3/10" be the beginning of a drought breaking pattern of rainfall? Only time and God can say, but at least for the short term, I have puddles in my yard and Cowboy paw prints in the mud.
For that, I'm grateful.
This will be my entry for the following Challenges:
1. Scraplift the Person In Front Of You - I lifted GMFTS's layout - Oh! H2O - Which you can see here:
2. PROJECT 52 WEEKS Challenge : This will be for my second week of my 2013 album.
3. Hoarders Challenge : I've been saving the Bo-Bunny MommaRazzi paper for the longest time. I've WANTED to use it, but true to a hording nature, I could never quit bring myself to cut into it. I still have plenty of it left, so my stash is safe. The flowers and alphabet Thickers are a pair of old Peachy Cheap deals, and the little blue roses are the last of a set that came in an old Swirlydoos kit. The ribbon - that's old too. I'm trying to use up the roll, but I know that I'll be sorry when it's finally gone. It's a great, versatile ribbon.
4. Four Categories Challenge - I think this will fit the #2 Category of 50% blue. I think I also pulled off the twist with blue paper, blue alphabet letters, blue flowers, and blue ribbon.
