Umbrella-Die Cut challenge reveal-SOUS

Oh gosh!! I'm so freaken happy it's Friday...
I am so excited to share with you a layout I created for our Die cut challenge over at SOUS to use an UMBRELLA on your project.. I decided to create a boyish layout, not necessarily a masculine layout, but a fun whimsical boyish layout :)

So, here is what I created:

Love love love the rain drip clouds.. Found those in the Silhouette store..
The photo is of my son Aaron back 2006 while we stopped off in at a Georgia rest stop to stretch our legs.  We were driving from Florida to Iowa.. It was such a nice drive.. Oh and our son Adam and daughter Amber are in the background of the bigger photo :)

How about some close ups and some details on how I created my layout:
close up of my kiddos.. 
You can just see some of the rain drops in the smaller photo as he was walking back towards the car..

Here you can see the right side of the layout.. I added some strips in different colors, just to add some fun color and balance to the layout..

My over sized umbrella.. wanted to stick with some fun prints instead of a solid..

The fun clouds.. I love these clouds :)  I added the white line trim onto the background papers using the Silhouette Designer Edition Sketch (continues edge sketch) and print only option..I also added some chevron patterns, just to keep the flow of the layout..

For my title.. I added some fun fonts in different colors to the inside of the nameplate along with a tiny rain cloud and umbrella..  I used the print option and only cut around the edge of the nameplate.. I also found a fun rain drop border which I used along the bottom of the layout:

 Everything is attached with foam tape to add dimension..

now, for the list of supplies used:

Silhouette Cameo
Silhouette designer edition
Canon Pixma home printer
White Premium Paper : semi gloss 200g/m2

For the background prints:
Digital Paper kit: 100% boy (Sweetshoppedesigns)

Foam tape and white marker..
