Please Join Me for The Scoop #124

Hi everyone! Can you believe that the 4th of July is almost here? I have been sharing a few fun ideas to help you plan your celebration...including my no-bake strawberry tunnel cake!  It's the easiest summer dessert that you will ever make. You will find the directions (I hesitate to even call it a recipe) right here.

Hi y'all and welcome to The Scoop.
I'm always excited when it's my turn to host!  I love spending time with each of you.
Did you know that this past week, I finally took care of something in my house that has been bugging me for quite a while?

How to make a bulletin board that hides the ugly side of your refrigerator

Boy, summer is marching on - fast and furious.  
I can't believe that we've already passed the summer solstice.  I'm just trying to soak it all up while I can.  Winter will be here soon enough.
One way that I like to add summer to my home is by adding some beachy touches here and there.  These are sooo easy and fun to make!  You should have no problem finding supplies - rumor has it that Hobby Lobby has had their Christmas stuff out for several weeks already.

As usual, you wowed us with your projects last week.
It's always tough to narrow it down, but here are a few that caught my eye.
This 4 Ingredient Lime Sorbet from Cincy Shopper sounds so refreshing for a hot summer day.  It looks easy to make too.


The July 4th Banner from Artsy VaVa is one of the cutest that I've ever seen.  She gives you all the details so that you can make one too.

The HOME Sign from Living And Learning With Luisa looks easy to make and is such such a great idea for celebrating your family and your home.


You need to see the Budget Kitchen Makeover from Designer Trapped In a Lawyers Body.  Loads of great ideas.  Amazing what you can do on a tight budget when you get your creative juices flowing.
