The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~15~

The Inspiration Board was filled with all kinds of goodies this week. It’s hard not to get in the Fall and Halloween mood after seeing so many wonderful ideas. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project. I hope you enjoyed visiting the other links as much as I did.

Here are a few that I’m spotlighting this week.

I love this sweet bunting by the Lazy Hobby Hopper. The delicate flowers in the vase are the perfect accent.
Inspiration: delicate touch

What a fun birthday theme for a lucky little boy. Sweet Sewn Stitches created this All Aboard birthday invitation and carried out the train theme for the party.
Inspiration: well executed

Another great party invitation from Jacolyn Murphy. Sweet basil planted in tomato cans hold the party invites.
Inspiration: think outside the envelope

Features 15 Pumpkins
A round up of pumpkins and not an orange one in the bunch. I love the non-traditional spin of all these pumpkins and each one is unique and beautiful.

Features 15 Chalkboard
Chalkboard paint continues to be incredibly popular in the crafting world and with good reason. There are so many applications for it.

Inspiration: chalk it up to creativity

A gorgeous fall wreath created by Boerman Ramblings. The coordinating floral colors have just the perfect touch of autumn.
