I hope that you are all enjoying the summer. I can hardly believe that it is August already! The summer just seems to fly by doesn’t it? However, there is still plenty of time for some more summer fun before the kids go back to school. These Fun in the Sun designs are the latest free printables from Paperspice. I have designed a set of 2 inch circles and a matching invitation that you can download by clicking on the link below. A Fun in the Sun summer beach or pool party would be a chance for kids to catch up with their school friends or get together with neighbours or cousins. Of course, you could also use the circles as gift tags or to embellish your summer holiday or vacation scrapbook pages. I’m sure that you will find lots of fun ways to use them this summer.
