Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone.

Have you been creative, stylish or crafty this week?

We are so pleased you have stopped by to join us today for this week’s Creative Mondays Bank Holiday Blog Hop special. Grab your favourite drink and link up you’re creative/crafty/stylish posts. These posts can be old or new. Have some fun finding amazing, inspiring and creative posts or your interests at this week’s party.

Thanks for joining us again last week, 134 inspiring posts were shared here: Creative Mondays Link Up.

Onto this week’s featured blogs:

Gail from Is This Mutton shares how easy it is to brighten up an LBD with a pop of colour, a pretty handbag and some amazing shoes!

You can read Gail’s post here: Transforming A Plain Dress With Accessories.

I bet everyone has something plain in their wardrobe that can look different with a pop of colour? I know I do.

We love pasta here. Hot or cold with salads. With added ingredients, pasta can be so tasty. I had never thought of adding grapes, broccoli or olives to it though. Have you? I bet it tastes amazing!

Our Unschooling Journey Through Life shares their recipe here: Pasta Salad with Grapes, Broccoli, and Olives. Hands up who fancies making some? ✋.

Do you know someone whose birthday is coming up? Someone who loves exercise? Someone who can hold the plank?

How lovely is this birthday card made by Lisa over at Handmade in Israel? Fancy making your own birthday card?

You can find out how Lisa made her’s here: Holding A Plank.

Do you want to add a pop of colour to your table this Spring/Summer?

Catherine from Smashing Plates Tablescapes, dinner table looks all bright and beautiful as she gets ready for Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby fall.

How pretty.

You can find Catherine’s post here: South Of The Border.

I love the colour orange and I have already treated myself to a few orange dresses already this year, but still not got around to wearing them yet.

Dawn Lucy from Fashion Should Be Fun looks lovely in her orange floral dress. She has reminded me to start wearing mine!

You can find her post here: Karina’s Audrey in Summertime Tango.

Now over to you:

What has got you creative this week?
