Shine on Fridays #20 {and some news}!

The weekend is almost here, can you feel it?
Time to PARTY!

Today, I have a few important announcements for you before we get started.  Kara and I are making a few changes to the way we host our party…and we’re hoping you think they’re changes for the better!
CHANGE #1: MORE FEATURES
We wanted to be able to feature more of the great projects linked up to our parties, so we decided to start a little something called
TOP TEN THURSDAYS
Each Thursday, both of us will feature ten of our favorite links from the previous week.  Then, on Fridays, we’ll each feature one of the top two most viewed links.  Be sure you check out our first Top 10 Thursday posts if you haven’t already! {Amy’s, Kara’s}
CHANGE #2: MORE GIVEAWAYS
We thought it was extra-fun each time we’ve included a giveaway with the party, so we decided to make it a weekly tradition!  If you’d like to volunteer to sponsor a giveaway for us, go to this form and sign up for the date of your choice!  A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has already signed up…I think we’re covered through July already!!
So, here’s what our Friday parties will look like from now on!
*********************************************************************
Today’s feature from last week’s party is this gorgeous Scripture Plaque Tutorial from Cherished Bliss.  Not only is it lovely, the song the quote comes from, “How He Loves” by the David Crowder Band is my current favorite!  Hop on over to check it out!

    Thanks for hosting the linky party and good morning! I have a recipe for Simple, Organic Lip Balm. It’s very easy to make, is super cheap ($.25 a tube) and is now my favorite lip balm. Hope you like it and have a great week!
