Umbrellas and Polka Dots!

Welcome back to another Friday Mashup challenge! It's my turn to host the challenge so as we close out April I wanted to focus on April showers and umbrellas. So many parts of the US are dry and looking for rain...I know here in southcentral Alaska we need moisture! Our lack of snow over the winter has everyone very concerned about an early start to the fire season. We had snow showers the other day but it wasn't enough to make a difference. Maybe this challenge with help Mother Nature along :) 

I'm also playing along with SugarPea Designs Anything Goes challenge. How fun is this image of a little girl with her umbrella? I colored in the scene with Copics and then paper pieced her umbrella, using a marker to add a few highlights.

I also love polka dots so let's add those to our projects also and have some fun! We can't wait to see what you come up with. Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and play along with us and also be sure to check out SugarPea Designs!
