The Inspiration Board: spotlight {97}

Happy Friday everyone! Thank you so much to everyone who came by and linked up on The Inspiration Board. The projects are always amazing and I especially enjoy visiting your sites and getting lost in your posts. If you stopped by to visit this week, I hope you found some creative inspiration and enjoyed the projects. Don't forget, my giveaway for an Origami Owl Locket is still going on. You can find more information here.

Have a wonderful weekend ~ now on the the spotlight.

MHM_1130406114444These paper flowers by Twigg Studios are stunning. The beauty of ranunculus are the delicate petals that are jam packed in each bloom. These paper replicas capture all those elements. Beautiful!

Natural Wooden Tiny Houses 23A mesmerizing wood grain village created by Ashbee Design. Each house so unique with the different ring patterns. I can imagine that these houses could be used throughout all the seasons left plain or dressed up with seasonal accents.

Roasted-Garlic-Dill-Hummus-2edPass the pita please! Roasted Garlic Dill Hummus by Will Cook for Smiles looking oh-so tasty. I have to confess, I love hummus but I’ve never made my own. Definitely going to try this.

Operation Rhino CollageWhen her little “thwee” year old asked for a Rhino Party Don’t Mess with my Tutus didn’t disappoint. Adorable party elements including hand cut invitations and my favorite, favor bags that say “thanks a ton”.

photo-1024x1024This homemade egg mcmuffin by The Love Nerds looks delicious. I love her tip on how to get the egg round and muffin sized.  I’ve served a make-your-own egg mcmuffin at brunch buffets and they’re always a hit. Yum, yum, yum!

BW1Sugar Swings has come up with another amazing confection. These birds on a wire graham cracker cookies are precious. She used up a bounty of leftover Easter jelly beans for the birds and they are just too cute!

IMG_7726What a clever idea. Vixen Made used an old door to create this clean white headboard. Add a little leftover molding and some darling linens and this big boy’s room is ready to go.

igottacreate-virtual-washi-tape-buttons-and-wireI Gotta Create has a gift for us today with these virtual washi tape downloads. So many fun uses for these, print them out, scrapbooking, photos and more.

Bird Seed Jar- Whole 3I love this gift idea from A Cozy Place Called Home. Bird seed in a jar with a cute embellished jar lid and tag. What a perfect spring gift.

4182879Unique and so appropriate. Crystelle Boutique used vintage music sheets to wallpaper this piano room. It all ties in so nicely with the light colored piano, the vintage fan and dress form.

Scented-Bubbles-girls-party-tea-party-springBlowing bubbles with little ones is always fun. They float around and seem to have a magical joyful quality. JoJo & Eloise has added another element to blowing bubbles to make the experience even better… scented bubbles. Lemon, lavender and rose scent are sure to make the memories even sweeter.
