Feature Friday: Bowdabra Top Crafty Showcase Picks

Can you believe that it is already Friday? This week really flew by. Summer is not a time to slow down. We hope that you are having fun crafting. Last week we had 120 links for our Saturday Showcase! This was our largest party and it keeps on growing each week! Thank you for linking up and visiting those who link up!

We love Friday because we get to share our top picks from last week’s Saturday Showcase links. Thanks to all 120 who joined in the fun and linked up! Each week, our Bowdabra Design team will pick our favorites and feature them here on our Bowdabra blog, Bowdabra Pinterest, Sandy Sandler Pinterest, Bowdabra Twitter, and Bowdabra Facebook sites! It is NOT an easy task to picking our favorites. We appreciate all of you for linking up and we love visiting all of your blogs, too!
