A REFRESHING Pop-up Challenge: #HydrationScrapNation

National Hydration Day is June 23, and what better way to celebrate the awesomeness of aqua than to commit to staying hydrated! H₂O is an integral part of our lives that keeps us healthy and happy — of course it’s necessary to drink water on the daily, but also think of days spent on the lake, at the pool or waterpark, hunkered down on a rainy day, jumping into puddles and so much more! So, we challenge you to pay homage to the gift and element that is water by taking on the National Hydration Day Pop-up Challenge in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group by creating a layout featuring H₂O designs on your page… AND the prize package includes a supply of Serene Waters goodies! While you’re taking on this challenge, let’s all commit to staying HYDRATED!
