But, if this is your first stop, then you need to head to Joy's Blog where all the inspiration begins..

Well, this is the first time I've altered a composition book and It was so much fun... So, with my book I decided to create it for myself.. I'm a big coffee fan, so I thought a coffee themed book would be prefect.. I just love how it turned out and I can't wait to use it :0)

Amanda!! First, I think your "steam" on the cover is GREAT! Well, I love the whole thing and especially appreciate the theme. (I've got my coffee right in front of me now. LOL!) I saw the coffee cup and thought, "Hey! That's one of my stamps!" Then I looked again and realized the background of the page was covered in Joy's Life stamps. It's SOOO CUTE!! I love your project. I WANT your project. LOL! :) Thank you for being in the Altered Composition Book Blog Hop!!
Hugs,

I'm a first time visitor to your blog site! I enjoy visiting other sites for inspiration. Your harvest paper would fit very nicely in my craft area! I don't have much in the line of autumn colors as I tend to use blues, pinks and lavenders most. Thanks for sharing your ideas and your blog candy!!
