Showcase Your Talent Thursday #73

Welcome to
Showcase Your Talent Thursday!!
I hope that everyone is having a great week! We have not been too busy and are just enjoying what is left of our summer.  My birthday is on Monday, so we will probably go out to eat sometime this weekend to celebrate.  

My blog was transferred to WordPress last week.  I love the new design and am still getting used to the new format. I really think the design came out great and it wouldn’t have been possible without Liz from Sweet Simplicity Designs.  She took care of the design and the transfer.  If you are thinking of transferring to WordPress or want a new design, definitely go make sure to check Sweet Simplicity Designs out.

I am hosting a giveaway for a Manwich Weekend Meal Prize Pack.  The prize pack includes a Calphalon saucepan, a $30 gift card for groceries, and Manwich products and samples.  If you haven’t already, make sure that you stop by and check it out.
Thanks to everyone that linked up last week! I loved looking at all the great projects that were linked up! There were so many great ideas, I always have a hard time picking the features!   I can’t wait to see what you have to share this week!!

Salted Ripple Chip Ice Cream by Cupcakes and Kale Chips.  Yum! I have been really liking salted chocolate lately.  I bet this ice cream is fantastic!

Easy DIY: First Day of School Frame

1st Day of School Frame by This Girl’s Life.  I love the idea of this frame and how easy it is.  This would be great to use for a photo every year.

Shrimp Cocktail Dip by Mostly Homemade Mom. This dip looks delicious.  It would be great to eat while watching a football game.
