Raining Cats and Dogs


Raining Cats and Dogs

Thank you, Belle for the inspiration to do this layout. I've always been intrigued by this saying and now you've given me the history behind it. So I hereby dedicate this first of about three layouts to you, Belle.


Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm,so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying, "It's raining cats and dogs."


Supplies Used:
CKA Rainy Days -- Papers-Clouds Gray and Drops Gray, Frames
LLO Nature Inspiration Bonus1 Nano - Frame
KME Butterfly Effect Collection -- Butterfly
DEB Realms Of Glory -- Alphas

    LOVE, LOVE your whimsical and pretty layout on Belle's History Lesson today, Carol! Adorable and made me smile!
    Wow Carol, this is wonderful. I've never had a layout dedicated to me before. I'm honored. I love the pictures of all the cats and dogs raining down. What a fun layout. Well done.
    Funny! Great layout, and great take on old sayings.
    It's terrific! Love the images you've used. My dad used to say "It's raining cats and dogs, and there are poodles in the road."
    Oh my goodness Carol I love this layout - I love your story in the description, the raindrops paper, AND your photos --- too fun!
