Rainy days = create...

Lately we have been doing a lot of this...
...just waiting for the rain to pass...and watching the water build up and up around our house...

See this water above ^ ? Well it backs up here, in our backyard before going through the trees....
...and comes out here.
A fair amount of water fell yesterday! AND we are up on a bit of a hill! But we are lucky. The amount of devastation in Queensland at the moment is phenomenal. And we are hopefully, fingers crossed, not going to be affected. Flood waters are coming our way though...just because they have no where else to go. The local rivers have cut the roads and swamped bridges.

So we are back and forth to the window at the moment, wondering when the rain is going to pass. With one eye on the rain and the other on the water levels, forgive us if we go a bit cross-eyed!

The good news? I've been scrapping! YAY!! A week's worth for Kaisercraft and played lot with the new Giselle kit for Storyboard (now sold out).... those layouts (4) I can share tomorrow. Today I can share this layout for Kaisercraft, created using the fabulous new line "Love Notes".

It's rare that we have a photo altogether as a family, (thx Cindy!!) because I am usually the one behind the camera. As mentioned previously, I do want more of these photos! And I am still trying to get at least one shot for this month! LOL!!

Boy that's a LOT of water around your place. Hope it doesn't get any worse Leanne...and that you all manage to stay dry! It's wet and soggy down here on the coast too. The kids are going a little stir-crazy!

Love your beautiful page!

Yikes! Some other qld girls I know are talking about the mould they are getting in their houses with all the dampness and rain. I certainly hope it all starts clearing soon so people can start cleaning up.

Love how you've used the Love NOtes collection Leanne!!
