Spring Flowers

Hello crafty buddies, today I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration for the Challenge over at Conie Fong's Facebook page.
This month our theme is Summer Colours.

Would love to see your entries there to win some of Conie's great images

I hope you're having a bit of summer where you are. I've got a few summer factoids for you, you know I like to tell you stuff!!

  • The iron in the Eifel Tower expands in the summer making it grow by more than 6 inches.
  • Summer is the by far the busiest time at movie theaters in the USA and Hollywood always hopes to earn a significant portion of total annual ticket sales through summer blockbuster months. To date, the top 10 most famous summer blockbusters of all time are 1) Jaws, 2) Star Wars, 3) Jurassic Park, 4) The Dark Knight, 5) Raiders of the Lost Ark, 6) E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 7) Forrest Gump, 8) Ghostbusters, 9) Animal House, and 10) Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • The month of June was named after either Juniores, the lower branch of the roman Senate, or Juno, the wife of Jupiter.
