Hi all

Iv now decided to craft a little valentine book for my bf, its going to have lots of bits and pieces special to me and him and random pics etc.

This is what iv done so far - no where near finished i welcome all your opinion on lay out etc.


These are the pages iv completed so far.


This will be my first page, im going to put August 2007 in the bottom right hand corner in red? as thats when we met.

The rest are just random pic things. Im going to put an envelope pocket at the back with some vouchers ie i promise to cook you a homemade meal etc.


This is just coz its so cute!

I was going to put some cheeky rhymes in as well - any other ideas?

Thanks everyone for helping me out with my fave pic - i wasnt expecting as big a response as i got.

You're welcome!

I know it's not the best, but it brought out your eyes & features some more, at least.

How about something in sepia like this? It can also be turned into black and white instead.

When I sharpened the photo, the lines were harsh.  Sepia softens it a bit.

It's always fun to play around in Photoshop.  Here are the two (very similar) versions of it that I came up with.

To take away from the blurriness, you can try applying a paintbrush effect. Make it look like a painting.
