July Color Challenge: Watermelon!

We have been struggling in the heat for the past 14 days with record-busting temperatures. Our province tragically lost the town of Lytton that burned to the ground when it hit temperatures higher than the hottest ever recorded temperature in Las Vegas… a blistering 121 degrees. 

With the heat comes lots and LOTS of watermelon in our house! I think I’ve bought three in the past week! So that is the inspiration for this month’s Color Challenge! Green and watermelon pink! 

I hope that you’ll be inspired to join us for this challenge! There are some great products in the store that will help you create a page using these colors! 

A few Guest CT members created some great pages to get us started. Kathy (@blackkathy) designed this stunning page! I can’t get over how creatively she overlaid the title.
