June 2023

 Hello all! Welcome back to another month at the Colorful Options Challenge
This month we celebrate...


We appreciate your participation in the Blue Challenge and invite you to join us again this month. 

Our challenge for this month is to incorporate the color peach into your design. You can use neutrals or metallics as needed, and your design does not have to be monochromatic. You can also create a rainbow-inspired craft if you prefer to use something other than peach.

Our Design Team showcases a range of artistic styles that you can also experiment with. To view the process behind their creations, click on their respective blogs and show some love by leaving a comment.

We would like to welcome our guest designer this month....
