Creative Thursday Link Party No. 14

Well, summer has officially hit us in Northern California and we are having blazin' hot days in the high 90's to low 100's.  YUK!

I am SO not a summer person.  I don't mind the sunshine and warm weather but at least have the grace to cool off at night so I can open my windows!

For those of us who started summer early, we go back to school in just 5 weeks if you can believe that.  We have been boating a few times, up to my parents for the 4th of July and are getting ready for our BIG trip of the summer (more to come on this Friday; until then you will be in suspense lol )

Are you ready to party?  I am!

I want to thank everyone who linked up two weeks ago; we had a whopping 164 posts on my link party (happy dance and confetti!) BIGGEST PARTY EVER!

I also want to thank everyone who links up each and every week; ESPECIALLY in the summer because I know exactly how busy life can be and I really do appreciate your taking the time to spend a few minutes with me each week.  I enjoy reading all the stories behind each post :)

A warm welcome to all the new bloggers following and participating in Creative Thursday.

I can't wait to see what everyone has been working on this week.  Here are YOUR top 3 viewed (on top) and MY favorite features (bottom two rows because I wanted to choose every post) from last week.  In no particular order

1.  Chicken Parmesan Sliders from The Grant Life Yum!  Can't wait to try this recipe.
2.  Cheesy Grilled Potatoes from It's not just about the recipe cheese and potatoes ~ need I say more?
3.  American Chevron Quilt from So Wonderfully Complex a beautiful patriotic quilt.
