Strawberry Lemonade

Kristen of Twinkle, Twinkle is hosting the second round of Summer of Color. This week's
challenge is Strawberry Lemonade. She based all of the challenges on ice cream inspirations.
(Thanks to Ella, of Ella's Edge, for posting about this cool challenge!)

First, some playing around with some of my photos and Pic Monkey (such an addicting program!)

and now, a poem...

Bonne Belle flavors
latched on belt loops
Maybeline kissing potion
tucked into back pockets of tight jeans
Strawberry lemonade lips
glossed and giddy
pink and pretty
shiny and shy
Could boys' kisses ever taste as sweet?
