7Dots April Challenge

7Dots has an April Challenge . The theme is April showers bring May flowers and this is the mood board.


A few weeks ago we had a storm whip though our area. Although it was not a tornado, the damage was very tornado like. We lost power for 24 hours and luckily we did not have much damage.  Our neighbors were not so lucky. They have several acres of woods in their  front yard and many trees were just toppled. In fact, three trees covered the only road going into and out of our sub division. We had planned on visiting friends but could not because of the blocked road. We had 10 -12 people out helping, 5 chain saws and a tractor. It took about 90 minutes for us to clear our road. The entire time it was raining. Of course, I had brought my camera with me. At one point I turned around and got a glimpse of the sun as it was setting.

Here is my take for the challenge. I chose to scrap the sunset after the storm.

The Nature Walk collection was perfect for this!
