Rainy Days vs. Sunny Days

Hello Crafty Friends,
It was a great week at school...we created Plant Life Cycle posters, started our poetry books, planted a bunch of seeds, and we worked on Angles/Transformations. Next week we are going to add the Animal Life Cycle and try to grow some beetles. I need to take some pictures at school and share all the work we are doing. It is quite impressive what the students have been learning. Hard to believe there are only 8 weeks left. 
Our weather has been quite odd the past couple of days. The meteorologist has predicted severe storms and all sporting events have been cancelled, but then we barely receive any rain. Most of the storms have been further south.
Talking about the weather reminds me...
It's time for a new challenge at Little Scrap Pieces.
The Challenge...April Showers
Include a cloud, an umbrella, or rain boots
 This paper matched the challenge perfectly (Well, the rain boots are missing, but that birdie sure would look cute wearing some.).
Heidi Grace Sunshower paper

Create a Critter Cricut cartridge ~ bird (p. 65) cut at 1 1/4"
