This was a fun week! I am so inspired by your summer treats and Push Up Pops. What a fun challenge! I love making new treats for my family and friends. So, now I am so inspired!
Be sure to go through the links and find some inspriration for yourself.
Our guest judge Morena, from Morena’s Corner had the most difficult job picking the winners. I think she did a fantastic job though!
Here is what she said about her judging experience.
Judge’s comments in italics.
I had so much fun hanging out as a guest judge at the CSI Project this week! The entries were all amazing, and it was agonizing trying to narrow the list down. Thank you to everyone who submitted a project!
The best part of judging was a surprise to me: it was the nostalgia factor! I was surprised at how many of the projects took me back to happy childhood summer days. From the popsicle molds, to snocone machines, to freezer punch, to ice box cakes: each post made me smile as I remembered the simple joys of frozen treats in the summer. Thank you for the fun week, and I hope you’ll come visit my corner sometime to say hello!
And the winners are……drum roll, please…..
