something from almost nothing- prompt 5

Although it a an absolutely gorgeous day weather wise and hard to think about rain on a day like this, please indulge me for a moment...
The layout I made using page protectors for this prompt is about my new rainboots...because well, part of celebrating life is celebrating the little things that make us happy, right? I can honestly say that I have never used page protectors to do anything other than protect my pages. I ended up just cutting one up to make journaling strip holders which I then sewed on. The journaling is hidden behind the picture.

But for the record, as much as I adore my lovely new boots, I would like to not have to pull them out for a while on account of more gorgeous weather like this!

One a side note, it has been a very exciting day around here. This morning we finalized our pre-approval process and met with our realtor to see a couple of houses! After hearing the news we celebrated with mimosas because we just happened to have oj and champagne hanging around ;-) 
don't mind the bed head, we had just gotten up!

I knew I make do a before/after scrapbook of our future new home, but think I am also going to keep all of these pictures and other home related bits in a folder together. I think it will be a great way to preserve this very exciting time in our lives! Have any of you done this?

Tonight is date night at the ice cream shop and then reviewing our packet from our realtor and making food for tomorrow's Easter celebration. 

Hope your weekend is lovely and full of things that bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face!
