Saturday Sparks Link Party 134

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 134!

Another Saturday, another party! It's always such a treat to see your newest projects and recipes. I never know what I will see, but I know that it will be inspiring in so many different ways.

 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 133.
