Beach and books do go hand in hand when you plan to go there to read and enjoy the sun, sand and sea.

We did go to the beach on Monday (7th Feb).  No, we didn't bring any books.

Jonathan protested when we reached Changi Village.  He's not a nature person but a cityscape kid.  After a short breakfast, we proceeded to the beach.  The Lord blessed us with excellent weather, windy and cool.  Not much sunshine and it was perfect.  Jonathan's protests immediately stopped and he began to enjoy the breeze as we walked along.  After we finished what we were there to do, instead of hurrying us to leave, Jonathan decided that he wanted to go to the Boardwalk, which was at the other side of Changi Village.
It was too hot then.  We promised him the next time.

Some pictures to share:

Later we proceeded to Changi Airport for lunch:
This is one of my favourite beverage ... lemon juice with sour plum.

Harith had Yee Mee (stir fried flat noodles) with mushroom

I had hor fun (flat rice noodles in gravy)

And while we were eating, the little prince had a good laugh listening to his Whee of Fortune tape:

Today, I finished another 3 birthday booklets that my friend ordered.  I kinda like these 3 better compared to the first 2 I made earlier (HERE).

I used yarn / fabric paper / heat tranfers for the alphabets / zots dimensional tape.  Front:
I wound the rainbow yarn making them zig-zag across the cover.  Did the same for the back cover.  The alphabets were cut from vinyl transfers and heatpressed onto the fabric paper.  I mounted them on cardstock to make them stronger.

I used glitter pattern paper for the cover, felts for the squares and Doodlebug Alpha Stickers.  The ribbon was taped below the felt squares.

I only use plain cardstock for the cover, ribbons and chipboard alpha-bites designed by American Crafts.
I love it that there are dashes on the chipboard alphas:

That's about it for today.  My table is a mess so I have to start packing before I take them out again to do another few more birthday booklets.

Thanks for dropping by :)
