June Calendar Challenge pages

Here are my Calendar Challenge June pages.  Promise I'm doing my May pages but am about a week behind  - good thing I write down a prompt for each day as I'd never remember what I've done.

I've resorted to using the Dylusions sprays again.  These are first becoming firm favourites for backgrounds.  The cover and depth of colour is so good (and I've just got some more!!)  I came across the Dr Seuss quote while looking for June ideas.  The quote is:
"How did it get so late so soon? 
December is here before it's June. 
It's night before it's afternoon. 
My goodness how the time has flewn.  
How did it get so late so soon? "
I think actually it refers to the end of the year rather than the middle but I'm certainly aware of the year whizzing by now....

Dr Seuss - now that is pure fun. Believe it or not I didn't read his books as a child even though I have been a Bookworm all my life but I bought his books as an adult and just loved them - okay, does that sound strange saying that out loud?!!!
Brilliant.

WOW Carol I love looking at your calendar pages each so different. I love the background you've created, perfect for a hot June day. How'd it get to being June so quickly? I've really no idea ;-) xx

I love the warm sizzling colours for your June page. Very fitting for today as I've just come in to cool down from gardening as it's too hot to work outside. I love that quote - the year is certainly tearing along.

Ha! Ha! love the Dr Zeuss quote Carol. I love reading those books to my little granddaughters although I sometimes struggle with the tongue twisters, lol!

Your calender pages are great once more and such perfect colours for the month. I've started collecting the Dylusions sprays but keep forgetting to get them out. Must rectify that asap.

Hugs

Love your bright sunny summer colors for June. Dr. Seuss is just perfect for how fast our world is spinning. I think it is because so many people are connected 24/7 with no down time to just relax and visit and enjoy. Happy June to you...

Carol, you have inspired me to have a go at this myself and I'm really enjoying doing it! I've just completed my 'May' pages and have done the background for June. I love your June pages and think the colours are really cheerful.
