When life gives you rain. Dance in it!....

Hello crafty peeps, it’s so nice to be posting again!

Even though I have needed this down time, I want you to know that I miss you all very much, and for what it’s worth, it is proving to be a very beneficial decision. 

With that said, I won’t keep you from the reason I am posting today, which is announcing Through the Classroom Door's newest Anything Goes challenge #49. 
It is actually my first time hosting the challenge as well.

But before I get to that, I just want to remind you all about this great online magazine. 
The video on my left sidebar was created by Jo Ham, and it gives you a glimpse of what the magazine has to offer.
The November/December issue of Through the Craft Room Door online magazine has 90 + pages of fun tutorials, loads of inspiration and FREE digital images that are located in the "Subscribers Only Area.”  You will also have access to all the previous issues when you join, so what are you waiting for you're just one click away.

Now on to this weeks "Anything Goes" challenge.

Our awesome sponsor isSaturated Canary.”

Krista Smith has generously provided us with images and I have chosen “Let it Rain”.

I printed the image onto Neenah card stock and then coloured it with my Copic markers.
The DP’s are all from MME Miss Caroline All Dolled Up collection, and then I used some basic card stock for the matting and flowers.
I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the flowers and a Memory Box Die for the flourishes. 
The sentiment is word art from Ginger's House, although I didn't use her font.

Copic Colours Used:

Skin: E11, 00, 000 R20

Hair: YR 24, 23, 21, 20 E35

Dress & Apron: R14, 12, 11, W1 BG 72

Boots & Umbrella: BG75, 72, 70 

I used some stardust stickles on her boots, umbrella, dress ruffles and in the centre of each flower. Lastly a touch of glossy accents to make her eyes sparkle. 

Well that’s all I have for you my crafty peeps, so lets get those creative mojo's going!

Head on over to the challenge site and check out what my fellow DT’eamies have created for you as well.
Oh, and remember…When Life Gives You Rain...Dance in it!
