When I first saw this challenge I was stuck, Valentines Day has never really meant much for me. In high school it was all about the chocolates. When I met my husband he was deployed on our first Valentine's Day, and our second, and our third. So you can see why Im so stuck this year. We are not a flowers and chocolates kind of couple. We are practical but enjoy whimsy in our lives. Like our microwave oven, wanting to make the kitchen a bit more "me", hubby painted it red. Practical and whimsical. Sooo.. the point is I want to give this challenge entry to my hubby, but it must be like us. So instead of making a big Love Book, I made a mini Love Book. Thou small it contains the essential elements of our relationshio, and of course , a secret!
Now on with the picture obesity!
All wraped and ready for hubby!

The spine "El Amor" = "Love"

The elements of our relationship: time, pearls, seizing the moment, love letters during separations (post stamp) and glitter Cheesy

But whats that on the side?


Could it be? It looks like a drawer! Lets open it!



Unwrap the secret and you will find our song!

The open box, secret and all Cheesy

One of the things that I keep being amazed by over and over again, is the size of the things people have made. In these crisp, macro photos everything looks huge and there's no sense of scale. You have to keep reminding yourself that it's only an inch and a half long! I at first tthought "That can't be a drawer in the side, it'd be too tiny." But it is a drawer! Brilliant and very, very sweet.

Your tiny book is so whimsical and sweet. The tiny drawer with your song hidden away inside is perfect!

The edge of that book looks so real!  And I love the clock inside the box.  In fact, the whole thing is amazing.  What a wonderful project!
