Creative Ways Link Party #62 and Features

Hello, summertime! Yes, the triple digits have finally hit the DFW area and we are feeling it! Hope you are enjoying the sweet things of summer (not just the sweltering heat). My kiddos have been at a church Musicamp this week, so I've taken advantage of the time to work on a little belated spring cleaning. It hasn't been fun, but I know I'll be excited when I see it all done. In the meantime, we have a party to do! I hope you've brought more of the awesome posts you share with us each week here at the Creative Ways Link Party!

I have a fun surprise for you... how about a GIVEAWAY? Remember when I shared my USA Patriotic Picture Tray recently? Well, I also shared about Folgers Iced Café Coffee Drink Concentrates that day. Now, you get the chance to try this refreshing drink! Enter the Rafflecopter below to win four samples and then share your latest creations with us at the link party! Get your entries in quick... the contest ends at midnight Thursday night!

Contest entrants are only eligible to win once per sweepstake, per household as part of a campaign sponsored by Influence Central.

So, since you all seem to be inspired by summer and I need the mental vacation, this week's features are themed around SUMMER.

Nothing says summertime more than a sweet and refreshing cherry limeade! This Life is Sweet Free Printable by I Should Be Mopping The Floor is the perfect reminder of that!

Speaking of sweet, check out these over the top S'mores Stuffed Brownies by Spoons of Grace! This dessert is the pinnacle of summertime sweets!

The Organized Life shared her Summer Essentials Basket with us last week. I love the idea of having all these items grouped together in one spot in the mudroom... I wish I had a mudroom too ;-)

I'm seriously drooling over this Roasted Corn Orzo Pasta Salad that To Simply Inspire shared with us. I could go for some of this fresh-looking salad right now!

I love this idea for a Summer Hockey Game "Slip & Slide" by Grandparents Plus! This is the best kind of outdoor fun in the sun!

Last, but not least, this Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Layer Cake by Say It With Cake looks absolutely amazing! The flavor of orange creamsicles takes me right back to summers as a kid!
