Creative Ways Link Party #11 and Features

Are there any party animals out there? Well, you've come to the right place! It's time for the Creative Ways Link Party #11 and the features from last week's party too! Have you had a good week? I've said it before and I'll say it again...this summer is speeding along at a pace I'm not entirely comfortable with. Can you believe August is just a couple of weeks away? Eeek!
As I type away at the computer, I'm listening to my daughter practice her lines for the musical our church is putting on at the end of this week's Musicamp. A few weeks ago it seemed like Musicamp was so far out into the summer, and yet here it is. Between driving the kiddos to and from the camp, other activities and a little bit of working with my husband, I have not had time to get any blog posts done for you all. I had no intention of taking time off during the summer, but life has got the best of me. I hope to get back to a more regular posting schedule soon. Thanks for being such sweet, loyal readers! You seriously make my heart smile when I read your kind comments. I have been enjoying all the wonderful posts you've been linking up at the parties too. This week was chock full of wonderful summer inspiration. Here were a few of the posts that caught my eye:
Clockwise from Top Left
Summer is Here Brunch by Lamberts Lately
(All of the recipes Leslie put into this post look amazing! I love how pretty the fruit pizza is.)
New Patio Chairs and a Fun Pillow by Zu Haus at Home
(Moni showed us how easy it is to add a little pizzazz to an otherwise plain pillow. Love the dots!)
Cherry Upside Down Cake with Almond Whipped Cream by Love Bakes Good Cakes
(Jamie never ceases to amaze me. This Cherry Upside Down Cake was worth the wait!)
Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Brownies by Swanky Recipes
(Oatmeal and Chocolate are the perfect complements to each other in this dessert that combines two of my loves...brownies and cookies!)
Corn on the Cob Cake by The Painted Apron
(This cake is so stinking clever! Such great attention to detail...especially those little "butter pats".)
French Inspired Piano Bench Makeover by My Love 2 Create
(This is truly an ugly duckling to beautiful swan transformation. Don't take my word for it. Go see for yourself.)
