I love June! The days are long and although our kids are usually still in school until the end of the month, things seem to slow down. Dinners (and now lunches too!) move outside to the deck and weeknight BBQs with friends kick off with more frequency. There is a lot that isn’t happening this year that normally does like parties, sports events, track meets, but I am thankful that things are starting to open up for summer and we won’t be trapped in the house! And the weather has been extraordinarily warm, which has meant kids can play outside and the garden is doing well.
For this months’ colour challenge, we are taking inspiration from an all-time favourite summer treat: Popsicles! That watery rainbow of flavours just screams summer! The kids started to make their own with real juice which is even better!
There are so many great products in the store that fit the bill for this challenge! Check out these amazing kits, papers and elements:

And for me, I decided to try to use some of the new 12×12 grids as a backdrop for a page about my daughter eating ice-cream…her favourite treat in the whole world! In fact, she even learned how to make it herself so she can enjoy it whenever she wants!
