Book[let] of LOVE

I thought I would make my dh a little book[let] telling him things I love about him and add a few images to fill some pages too so here it is ...well most of it anyway LOL I am not sharing all the mushy stuff or my list of the things I love about him.

I used stamps from FireCracker Designs by Pamela throughout and added ribbon to tie it all together from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

On the front cover is a sticker I found in one of my drawers and it says on it "how do I love thee let me count the ways" it is a 3D sticker and matched quite well with the green tones I had chosen to use.

The sticker with the words on it was from the Craft Kit I had received in the mail and the small heart is a from a set of sticky backed rhinestone ones I picked up at the craft store awhile back. Coloring for the hands was done with my Copic markers and also added white to the bracelet with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen. (hard to see here I know but I did color it in!) And yep my dh skin is much darker than mine and actually more brown but I couldn't get it right so this will have to do! LOL

This is one of the sentiments from FCD and I added some Flourishes also. Inside the tips of the flourish I added a little crystal.

Skip ahead now the mushy stuff was in the middle LOL!
I made a collage of the clock stamped over and over and choose one to highlight with Copic markers and a little red heart in the center of the hands. I used 2 stamps to make the corner lifetime and also stamped some XOXO all over too :)

Last page I used another sticker from the kit and added another of the heart rhinestones.

I just finished the back off simple, used the same stamp as the cover and then added some xoxo to it and I will sign it too before I give it to him!

Hope he enjoys it although I am pretty sure it will end up in a drawer somewhere as he isn't one to set stuff out like this although he does keep them and not throw them away which I am thankful for!
