Today's Forecast: Scrapbooking

One of the easiest ways to convey a mood on your layouts or projects, is by using Weather elements!!  And we have a challenge today at Frosted Designs for Fabulous Friday, to do just that:  use Weather (sun, rain, clouds, snow, etc.) on your layout or project!  How fun is that??!!

I had so much fun with my DT layout for this challenge!  I always love creating scenes with clouds and a just makes me happy!  I thought the Spring Flings & Easter Things line from Bella Blvd. would work great with this challenge.  The papers are really bright and fun and I love the raindrop patterned paper with this line!!  I did some masking/misting on this layout with an old scrap piece of paper, that I had cut some flowers from on my Expression a while back.  Sometimes it's a good thing to save those kind of never know how you might use them later.

I also wanted to create a rainbow effect in my background, so I used a large plate to trace a pattern on my paper.  Then I cut out each of the pieces and overlapped them in the background of my layout.  I also fussy cut the cute, little rainbow embellishment from some of the Bella paper and added it in with my sun and clouds to reinforce the rainbow in the background.

So sit down some time this weekend and have fun creating Weather on your layouts or projects.  You can enter to win from our awesome sponsor this week, Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits!!  Make sure to upload your creations to the Frosted Designs Blog by Noon on Thursday, April 19!!
