So, I made an awesome (first time) scrapbook for my then-boyfriend and I's anniversary. We didn't quite last to that day, so I never gave him the book. I hate to throw away these pages even though it was a messy break-up, so I figured I'd share and maybe spark some ideas for everyone, I love looking at the other posts of layouts :]

The cover, has a senior picture of each of us with names, and the elementary school we met at.

He said the thing that got him interested in me was a conversation about his trip to New Orleans, so I printed off the pieces of it and glued them to cardstock in a fan display.

One of my favorite pages, our first date at the carnival.

I never got around to putting pictures on the page, but he was always cutting down trees, hoeing the garden, or putting up shelves.

The first page for prom

The other one, our school's colors were purple and gold. Another favorite page.

Our graduation page, I put a picture his grandma got of us kissing as everyone threw up their hat, and put our little announcement namecard things beside it.

I really like this page. He taught me how to fish, and so I caught a picture of him getting a stick, and then one of me to which I glued the back hook of a button cut in half (hard to explain but it looked like a hook) and stuck a huge fish on the end to make myself feel better about not catching anything.

One of the most terrifying drives of my life, he took me to the top of a ridge in the valley we live in, scary as you-know-what. Then we hiked down to the river and saw some spiffy cave drawings and whatnot.

The 4th of July page...we took so many pictures trying to get decent ones of the fireworks. The next day, I realized I had a fireworks setting on my camera xD


And some pressed plants from our camping trip over the 4th of July weekend.

Unfortunately I have tons more pictures for more pages, but I never got around to them. Enjoy!

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

Wow this was really really cool.
That makes me sad that you broke up because those seemed like beautiful memories..
You might want to remember that when the harsh breakup feelings die down a little.. I'd store them in a safe place far far away lol

I think you did a great job!!!! And as tempting as it is to throw it away over a break up, dont! I regret doing that with my 1st boyfriend...not that Im in love with the manchild still (hahahaha he's never grown up!) but it would have been nice to keep some old teenage memories to show my kids now these days! I had a jealous 1st husband who destroyed anything I had with previous boyfriends in it (pics, letters, you name it). How insecure is that?  Undecided

I love your pages though! GREAT JOB!!! Smiley

you got some really great layouts! It is sad that you broke up but listen, never throw them away!! Make an album for yourself like I did, I call it my "how I grew up" book and I have lots of photos from every part of my life including old boyfriends because at the time they were a big part of my life. Don't worry, one day you'll look back and say "yeah my boyfriend and I did ....." and the memory will be a great one!

If you made it, I'll love it!
I'll swap ya for it Smiley
