This little darling is a new Spring image from Sassy Cheryl's called "April Umbrella". Tracy is our hostess this week and she wants us to use something new on our project. I definitely don't need an excuse to buy something new but this was a free ticket to go to the craft store!
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it...
I have wanted to use this image since Cheryl released it but I was waiting for that perfect paper to compliment it. By luck, I found a pack of American Crafts ON SALE with this rain drop paper in it. Then I wandered over to the Prisma pencils and bought some Spring colors I didn't have. The yellow was perfect for her rain coat! Some days are just good days at the craft store so I pushed my luck and kept looking. I meandered over to the embossing folders and found a Sizzix paisley folder and a paisley is shaped like a rain drop, so I HAD to get that too. All I needed was ribbon and I actually had that at home so my trip was over. Bummer huh?
I hope you all will stop by and participate in the challenge this week. It's a good excuse to go out and buy something new. (if you need an excuse)
