Toadally Cute Scrapbook Layout

Hi, everyone!
I hope your weekend has been a good one! The temps cooled down here, and hubby is now sleeping days for his two-week midnight stint at work (ugh!). Combine that with the rain, and it has made for a great crafty day for me!
I've been working on another scrapbook layout for my niece's book for the past few days. I recently won a gift certificate to Designs on Cloud 9, so I picked up this super-duper cute Rain Frogs SVG File from there, and have included two of the frogs in that set on my layout.
It's a short drive to the closest JoAnn store here, and they recently had a paper sale; of course, I had to go! lol! Not that I needed any paper, but..........I needed paper! lol! Having already purchased the svg frogs, you can imagine my excitement when I came across this cute paper there! :) I was like a kid in a candy store, raiding those racks like crazy! lol!

Here are some closer views of the paper-pieced cuties, the water lilly flowers (made from my own svg), and the title (also made from my own svg). 

I added the sweet little dragonflies, which were a pack of really old photo corners I had in my stash,  I peeled the dragonflies off the corner pieces they were attached to, and glued them to my page. I did some dry embossing to the title letters and to the water. Most of the edges of the frogs and the flowers were inked before they were pieced together. 
Thanks so much for hopping by today! I hope you enjoy what you see here!
