Tickled Pink No. 10 with a Hop!

So, I have been doing just a wee bit of research
on what it means to be "Tickled Pink."
I know some have not linked up because their posts isn't pink...
guess what it does not have to be PINK!?
This day is about stuff we {heart} from our own blogs or from others.
I thought I would throw out the "definition" of what it means to be Tickled Pink.
{I found this on The Phrase Finder.}
"...it's the figurative sense of the word that means 'to give pleasure or gratify'. The tickling pink concept is of enjoyment great enough
to make the recipient glow with pleasure ."
It is time for Tickled Pink No. 10 with a Hop!
WOWie...I cannot believe we are on No. 10! 
A big huge-a-licious THANK YOU for all who have participated and visited.

great fun for kids
glitter and paper and glue - oh my
the cutest burger-maker EVER
a reminder to love yourself 
SPOTLIGHT on summer fun 
great fun for kids
is from Simoney at Great Fun 4 Kids 
Button by The Button Box
In our house summer is birthday season.
And, well every day is another day to have fun...
or at least give it our best effort. Being a wedding and party planner, I can appreciate a good party when I see one. I also appreciate a party that is well planned without spending $1,000,000. Simoney at Great Fun 4 Kids has some fabulous parties -and we can all pretend we are fancy because these ideas are imported from New Zealand! {HA!}

The parties at Great Fun 4 Kids are thoughtful, well-planned out,
and party perfect without being overdone.
***Anyone want to join me for a dinosaur sleepover?
You must check out that cake!***
***My family is all about their cars, so I just adore the Wacky Wheels party.
Such great ideas that tie the entire party together and
she even made cute road signs with card stock and electrical tape!***
***Of course, I did not forget about the little fairies around here.
The Fairy Party is utterly enchanting!***

Simoney is also the creator of  KidsClick.
Remember...I told you all about it last week.
Well this weeks theme is "This is Me!"

These parties and ideas are sure to Tickle YOU Pink
glitter and paper and glue - oh my! 

Tammy is a master at what she does.
I continue to marvel at what she can do with
paper, glue, glitter, and her imagination.
She makes it all beautiful!
***One of my favorite projects is her repurposing of an ice cream bucket.
{I think this may be one of the first projects I ever saw of hers}***
***So, remember how I just said Tammy can make it all beautiful...
check out what she did to the dog food container.
I assure you, any dog would be wagging their tale when if they saw this!***
***When I have a party, I love to elevate my items...I use all space possible - vertical and horizontal! Tammy made this adorable cupcake stand. I see it in the future for my daughters b'day! ***
***And if you need something to put on that cupcakes stand besides cupcakes, check out this recipe for strawberries and cream! A perfect little treat!***
a the cutest burger maker EVER
is Rook No. 17's daughter 
Jenn from Rook No. 17 is actually a real life friend  - he was even a real life friend first! Jenn is a creative force to be reckoned with. She has taken a bit of a bloggy break...but I have noticed quite a few posts recently and then saw this number on her facebook page! Maddie and {my son} Joe are twins from different parents. Maddie is a cool kid who gets my sarcasm, so what's not to love.
 Jenn has been making these little cuties lately...and while I have wanted to try I was intimidated...but she shot this footage of Maddie showing us how easy -peasy it is to make one and now we are considering having a burger bar at Joe's birthday party.

Jenn is also holding a giveaway for a super cool Diaper Dudes Diaper Bag.

  25. I'm with Liz! Inquiring minds want to know! When I first read about Tammy repurposing the ice cream bucket, I thought it read ice cream truck! I was thinking "woah" that girl is serious about fixing things up! I guess I'm more in need of the weekend than I thought. Enjoy yours!

    You are like superwoman. How do you keep up? Thank you for you responses regarding the raw food detox. I have given it up. It was the most horrible stuff I've ever had. It must be my taste buds. So -- I truly wish I was made of the stuff to follow through, but I don't like more than half of the stuff on there. HOWEVER -- I did find some things that I did like and will continue to incorporate those into a healthier lifestyle. Thank you so much, Holly!

    Also -- I love the Tickled Pink highlights this week. Thank you for sharing those!

  29. I love your tickled pink Fridays. And my brain is mush by Thursday night...I need to put a little reminder on my computer to be sure and participate!!

  30. Oh there looks like some great link-ups this week. I need more time in the day to peruse them all! Thanks for hosting, Holly. Always fun to check out Tickled Pink Fridays!

  31. Thank you for highlighting my blog! You are awesome! I'm looking forward to getting a chance to visit the other blogs you showcased.

  32. Hey Holly, just wanted you to know that I received my awesome gardening book last week. I mentioned it and YOU in my VLOG I just posted :) Thank you again!!! Hopefully I can become a good gardener now.

  33. Hi Holly,
    Yes, you need to get back to Paris! I got a kick out of you mentioning that you are a "bad traveler"! We just got back from a quick camping trip up north, so now I am getting my blog fix! :) We don't rough it, we rv it!

    Love you,
    Alex aka Ma, What's For Dinner

  40. Holly, it's 1:00 a.m., all is quiet (oh wait, Maddie is still awake), and I finally have some time, kinda, sorta, to myself, so I thought I'd stop by 504 Main, and WOOHOO, I was "tickled pink" to see Maddie and the little burger cakes featured here! Thank you! I, of course, had to check out the ice cream bucket tutorial over at "Life is Not Just Paper and Glue", since Mrs. Steinmann gave me about 50 of them last week. I love this feature. Yes, I could spend hours visiting all the great links. You rock, my SnarkSister!

  41. You should totally have a burger bar. It sounds like so much fun!

  42. wow look at all these goodies to go check out =) i love love that video of Maddi making those burgers with the "quote" lettuce =) she's a doll! Off to explore some of these blogs.
