Rain, Rain, Go Away

I have been trying to minimize buying scrapbook stuff for the past month. I resisted buying so many ‘wants’ from my LSS and ‘wants’ from online scrapbook shop just because they are on sale mainly due to the fact that I realised that I have too many ‘wants’ which is never gonna end with so many new arrivals each week and month.

Due to time constraint, with work and taking care of my 2 little adorable monsters, I have even lesser time to do my scrapbooking. For example, I was not working last Monday and Tuesday, however, I didn’t manage to finish even 1 layout. I was simply tired out by the time the kids went to bed. No doubt I have my domestic helper to help me around but at the end of the day, I simply want some peace and quiet and to rest my poor brain. Thus, I make a pact with myself, keep to the budget and if I scrap less, buy less then. And USE MY STASH so that I can justify myself for buying new stash… I’m sure I’m not the scapper who is guilty of keeping stash…Heh

So, I’m trying to use up my old stash to make way for new ones… Just like this one.

I used old Sassafraslass pp for the layout. I cut out pieces of 'raindrops' from old used pp ( Don't really like to waste scrap paper).This was the first time Ah Ger was wearing a poncho. She was so excited that she refused to take them out even after we reach home. She is even sweet enough to pose for picture taking session!

I had actually misted the background with glimmer mist but it is not showing very clearly. I think the colour is to light.Simple layout... but I wanna keep the focus on my adorable daughter.
Thanks for looking!
