The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 213 & Inspiring Summer Sherbert Colors

Hello friends! If you’re here in the U.S., I hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July weekend. The holiday weekend was also the end of my weeklong staycation so it’s back to work (at my day job) for me. I got a lot done during my week off including having family and friends over on the Fourth. I never did make it to the chaise lounge with a tall cool drink and a magazine during the week. But, oh well, it was still nice.

A huge thank you to all of you that shared projects on The Inspiration Board last week. The party had been dwindling but was back on an upswing last week. Hooray! For those who haven’t had a chance to pop over lately, here’s what I’ve shared recently.
