#TBT Last Year at this Time...

This is my first time posting for Throwback Thursday (#TBT) on my blog.  I was just thinking about what a rainy June we had last year.  There was so much rain that water seeped into our basement and pooled on the floor.  Luckily, we have an unfinished basement with a concrete floor, so the damage was minimal.  But obviously we couldn't have water just sitting on the floor.  So, we got a sump pump.  And I love it.  Not for its looks, but for what it can do to prevent our basement from ever flooding again.
 
Supplies: cardstock from Bazzill; patterned paper, stickers, & enamel shapes from October Afternoon; notebook paper from Cachet; doilies from Celebrate It; pen from Foray; ink from Tsukineko; household mechanical pencil & mini calendar page.
 

I love the sump pump so much that I scrapbooked a photo of it on the June month-in-review page of my 2014 album.  And I even used the shabby-chic style, just to show my love...the scrapbook page is kind of like a frilly Valentine card to my sump pump.  In fact, the big doily in the background is actually made of eight little heart-shaped doilies.  I realize that my love for the sump pump is a bit silly, yet I just can't help it.  And that makes me smile.  I hope this scrapbook page makes you smile, too.  May your June weather be pleasant and your basement (if you have one) stay dry.  :)
