W2CB #28: April Suns and April Shadows

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with the April/May W2CB Challenge.

Springtime is such a wonderful time of the year. Trees are budding, birds are chirping, and the grass is greening.

However, for those of us who live in the northern or central part of the country, it can be a frustrating time. One day, the sun is shining and the skies are blue. On the next day, the winds are cold and the storm clouds loom.... or the snow falls, which brings us to this challenge's words to craft by.

Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns
and shadow of April showers.   Byron Caldwell Smith

Let's see how our I-Team interpreted these words, starting with this month's Guest I-Teamer Cat. From the looks of things, these words reminded several of our gals of umbrellas and flowers. 


Hope we've inspired you to play along. There are three ways to win.
  • The crafter who creates the winning entry will be invited to join as a Guest I-Teamer for a future challenge.
  • One participant will be randomly chosen to receive a $10 Paper Smooches gift certificate.
  • And, one follower will be randomly chosen to receive a $10 Paper Smooches gift certificate.
Even if you don't have a chance to play along this month, you might want to join us as a follower. Speaking  of followers, we extend a warm W2CB welcome to our newest follower Melissa. 

Show us your Suns and Shadows
