so for valentines day i made a scrapbook for my boyfriend.
we have an awkward situation because we live in the same town  but go to school 1 1/2 away from each other...
we were friends for almost 4 years, and over the summer we got very close but decided to not be official because long term relationships are hard. eventually, we couldnt take it any longer and decided to make it official. this scrapbook journals the 8 month period from when we started "hanging out" to valentines day. I'm going to make new layouts for all the special things we have in the future.

this is the first page. it was actually the last page i made, so it was kinda..welll...not very good.


this page is called "more than friends" which is when my boyfriend and i had our first kiss, over a month after we started hanging out.



this page is about the summer we spent together. the top is night skys and the bottom is beach days.



the next page is about all the times he visited me at school. the picture is from my favorite visit, which he took me to a super fancy restaurant.





the next one is when we actually became official. the picture is us getting ready to go to a restaurant to celebrate.







the next two pages are dedicated to our first christmas together. he surprised me with a trip to NYC. it was an incredible experience to share with him. this is my fav scrap book page. (or two)




the next page is when we actually said i love you to each other.




this page is for new years. he met my extended family. 30+ people!



and valentines day. I'm going to add the picture to the page once i get it developed since i gave it to him on vday.



oh and heres the album



thanks for viewing.

and btw. i spent less than 15 dollars on this whole album. how thrifty! heh

I really like your 'visit me'; 'new york' and 'valentines day' pages - they are so creative - love that you used those candy hearts for your vday page!  Did you write the cover [the last page you did??] - if so - your handwritting is amazing!  Awesome job, I really like it!!  I would do something like this for my hubby and me but we have like NO pictures of ourselves together.. and he is the photographer so he is usually behind the camera.  =o\

aw this was so cute!! i liked your layouts, and reading your journalling reminded me of the summer my boyfriend and i fell in love...i can relate to long distance too: he went to college almost 2 1/2 hours away from where i lived.
