Summer, YEA!!!!!

That's me at the beach. I was a little homesick for my craft room, but of course, I enjoyed this!
I so love summer and I'm really enjoying the warm weather, sunshine and this past week the beach. WOOHOO!
Anyhow, I'm catching things up including my online altered book class. Did you ever put a real zipper in a book? I just did for the first time and although it wasn't easy and certainly isn't my best work, I am amazed that it works and looks so cool.

This is an ATC type creation on wood. Used wallpaper flowers which I washed a gold paint over them
Here's the ocean and beach for you. Our first trip to Wildwood, NJ in many years. It was the perfect week! No rain, no cold days.
Bye for now,

Have been meaning to stop by for a visit for some time now Nelly! Finally, I made it. Your beach time looks most appealing. Love the zipper idea - fabulous! Will be back to visit.
