Welcome to Challenge No. 116

The Baker's Twine creations gave me so much inspiration!
I'm overwhelmed by the creativity ~ Thank you to those of you who joined :)

~ Winner and Princess Dragonfly o

Challenge No. 115 is:

~ Joanna/Sitting on Pens & Needles ~

Congrats and Cheers Joanna!!  The black frames around all of the pretty purple with the perfect touch of black and white twine and that heart charm really won my heart!  Grab your Princess Badge from over on the right sidebar and display it proudly. It is well deserved :)

~ Challenge No. 116 -

 April Showers bring May Flowers ~

It's one of my favorite sayings for Spring, and the proverb "March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers" was first recorded in 1886, or the shorter version that we use now "April showers bring May flowers" is part of a poem recorded in 1610. The phrase is also referenced in the general prologue of The Canterbury Tales.
 It is a reminder that even the most unpleasant of things, in this case the heavy rains of April, can bring about very enjoyable things indeed -- even an abundance of flowers in May :)

For this challenge, show me some Showers (umbrellas, rain, boots, baby or wedding shower, etc.) or any kind of Flowers as we all welcome Spring!

~ The winning entry will be crowned with the title of Princess Dragonfly, and have you and your blog featured in Challenge No. 117 ~

 Remember any type of project you're working on is welcome here (cards, scrapbook pages and albums, mixed media, etc.) and you could see your way to being the next Princess Dragonfly ~ That's it!

You can still join and win if you don't have a blog ~

  I hope my 'April Showers bring May Flowers' examples here will inspire you to join :)
