Funtastic Friday #132

Welcome all!
We're posting the link party a little late this week--
just got back from girl's camp.
It's always a fun and uplifting week with girls ages 12-17.
What amazing young women we have among us!
If you're heading out camping, 
of course you've got to have s'mores!
Take along our easily portable S'mores in a Bag.

We had one sweet girl at camp from the Philippines,
who had never had this tasty treat.
Cool to watch her to roast her first marshmallow and
you should have seen her eyes light up when she took her first s'more bite!

Now on to the party!

Mini Bicycle Embroidery Hoop Necklace - with Free Pattern!

There were a ton of great links last week
and this mini embroidery necklace really caught my eye.
Bev did a great job stitching something so small and it reminds me of a sunny summer day.

We're looking forward to Memorial Day's weekend.
What do you have planned?
We have a soccer tournament in a neighboring town,
but I hope to get some yard work done
and some relaxing BBQ-ing in!

Funtastic Friday #127

Welcome back to another week of Funtastic Friday!

I think I'm getting the redecorating bug.
I just love what Leslie did with this giant peg board.

I've got some ideas swirling around.
As soon as school's out,
we've got to clean out and rearrange things.
But for right now,
we have another graduation on the brain.

Last year I used this Adventure Awaits theme
for a graduation dinner.
It's my favorite grad decor and theme to date!

Now let's party!

How to make a Word Board with vinyl stencil

One of our college girls just graduated this last weekend.
It's that season when we wish all our grads success after years of study,
as they move on to their next adventures.
 and to go out and conquer the world!
I wanted to make my daughter something she could hang up with words of inspiration. I went on her Pinterest boards to find a quote she liked.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
