Last August, the 4 of us made a trip to Quebec City to celebrate the 18th birthday of our son, Chris Pennington. We stayed overnight in Levi Quebec, and took the ferry over to Quebec City in the morning. The morning was rainy and cold. Chris had dressed for summer weather, and it soon proved uncomfortably cold for him. When we arrived in the city we searched for a sweater for him to wear. We made the best of the day, and the weather improved somewhat. We enjoyed an awesome breakfast in the old city, watched musicians, visited sites, and finished with a wonderful dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens restaurant. But first – I wanted Chris to experience a lunch in an outdoor café where he could have his first LEGAL beer. In the province of Quebec, the legal age to drink alcohol is 18. We enjoyed our day, and ended the evening with a performance of Cirque de Soleil underneath the bridge in the city, traveling home on the last ferry ride to Levi. My layout is for the 15th April challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge where we challenge you to:
Using sketch 9 – April showers bring May flowers – scrap about a rainfall, or storm. Perhaps the weather ruined your plans, or perhaps you were experiencing a drought or dry well and were relieved to see the heavens open. Or you can scrap about anything in the springtime, how it makes you feel after the long winter, new life, whatever speaks of this time to you!! You might not want to scrap about your garden though, as you may be doing that soon here – hint, hint!!
Here is my take where I used the sketch for the original inspiration, but went off wacky on my own!! But sketches are for inspiration – not to tie your hands!

I used American Crafts Day Dreams Great Day paper for the background of my layout!
