Love that bicycle, and the beach layout is wonderful---love the colors, the design, and the three cute tags! No crafting on vacation, but hoping to get a bit in during the few days we're home before heading out again.

I have been trying to keep up with my FIT planner, journaling about my fitness and health. I also need to make a new sermon notes notebook to start on Easter. Plenty of blank books around to choose from at least 🤗

I've not done a whole lot of crafting recently and you always inspire me to get back into it x

Love the beach layout - beautiful colours. I've been busy doing 12x12 layouts using some page kits I have put together using my stash. This week I am off work and plan to do a 6x9 pocket album challenge which my friend and I have set each other.

We don't have composition books like yours, so when we were in Florida we bought a few because altering them is,as you have shown, a lot of fun! Still sock knitting and scrapbooking here

Oh lots of fun crafting going on there - the postcard is terrific! I've been sneaking in little bits of scrapping here and there - and telling myself that in April I can ensconce myself in paper and pretties. Craft on, Melissa.

Lovely stuff! That beach page is so full of apricot tones and sunshine and you've really used those papers and tags to great effect. I like your postcard idea too. Up here, it's been learning Lightroom and working on my This Is Life 2016 album.

You've been busy! Your altered notebooks remind me that I have a drawer full awaiting some creative time...

I like your layout & altered books - both I could do as a fellow scrapbooker. I really like the BB bike on your card.
