I almost forgot to post my craft for today. This day was a long but wonderful none the less!
So, the other day I was talking to my friend Lisa about my parent's "love story" and then it dawned on me. I haven't had the chance to write down the love story about them, about my in-laws or about us. Both parents (Albert's and mine have been married for 35+ years). Their love stories MUST be written down for me & for my son. I want him to know all the details. The ones I've been told by my parents, & all of mine as well! If I convince Albert to join me, teheheh he can write down his perspective too.
I used some cheap canvas material from Wal-Mart, and some of my stash! I sorted through my red buttons, brads, & bling to make the heart. I carefully stitched each one into the shape of a heart. Then, I hand stitched around the heart. I sewed a rectangle (using a sewing machine) for an extra touch. (Yup, its a bit to the side- oh well!) I then glued the canvas onto a piece of chipboard. I cut mine into a 6 1/5 X 8" rectangle.
On the inside, I folded the canvas and covered it with a red piece of card stock. I added a journaling tag and some plain white paper inside. Punch some holes, and add some binder rings...
Your journal is ready to be filled! I promise to get to those questions and show you a sweet mini album I am working on. ;) You can still enter in all giveaways. I will draw names on Friday! TFL!
This giveaway is for ANY 2 sets of Shabby Chic Crafts tags. This way, if you are not in the Valentine spirit, you can choose the ones you like. I understand! I still have some Halloween pictures to scrap. I'm a bit behind, but I'm just not in the mood to scrap Halloween. Anyway, leave a comment with your love story...if you want to share. ;) I will post a winner on Friday as well!
