Inspired By #18

Well here we are in April already and April Showers really fits our weather lately.  Actually we even had snow the other day... I am so ready for spring!

Anyhow, I chose a timely inspiration photo for this week.

Some different ways to take this photo (umbrellas, spring, colors, the lines).  

I decided to go with the umbrella theme and used my Jillibean Soup Southern Chicken Dumpling collection.  

I used the sketch from Twisted Sketches (twist is spring)

I am also entering into the following challenges: The Crazy Challenge (spring); The Pink Elephant (CAS) and Papertake Weekly (anything goes)

Now this is the first challenge of the month so I will have a prize!  I can't wait to see what you do!
