I have been having one heck of a creative dry spell. Maybe it's the funk I've been in...that never fosters much creative gumption. Or it might be the fact that the computer I have to use is OLD and I haven't been taking pictures, so I haven't had much to scrap. Either way, I hadn't made a page since mid March. That's NOT good.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I was exploring a local shop with Rob and saw the most perfect pair of galoshes ever and snapped a picture with my cell phone. We were only window shopping, and I saw a lot of neat things. (Namely, they are my new favorite store because they have loads of used books at great prices!) But the thing I remember the most...the thing I look for in the window every time I pass now...is that perfect pair of polka dot galoshes! I am hoping that they will still be there next time I come across an extra $20 to blow on myself. That's right...vintage galoshes in just my size for only $20.
Well, I believe everything happens for a reason, and I think I found those galoshes so I could get my creative juices flowing again! It took me a while, but I suddenly remembered I had some rain themed papers and elements that would be perfect! So, I got to work yesterday and after a lot of playing I finally made a page! It was a big deal for me, so I thought I'd share it! Hopefully, this opened a flood gate for my creative juices! I will list the credits and journaling below the picture...I hope you enjoy it!

Journaling"I've been exploring my new hometown in the afternoons. I just love all the little nooks and crannies of downtown! I saw these fabulous vintage boots in the local antique shop. I'm a fool for polka dots! They had quite a few different pairs in all shapes and sizes, but these were, by far, my favorites! Alas, I was only window shopping...but I hope they are still there when I have $20 to spend!"
