PTI June Blog Hop: Summer






My inspiration for this challenge is the bougainvilla plant that is under the window of my craft room. Because we had a cool, beautiful spring and cool start to our normally brutal desert summer, this plant is still full of gorgeous blooms that brighten even a gloomy overcast monsoon day like we're having today. Flowers always make us feel better, don't they?
