i finally had the courage to scrapbook again after my first four went the way of "the knitter's curse." Ever heard of it before? you know, you finally finish a sweater for your boyfriend, and then you break up? yeah, that happened with four of my scrapbooks, and i was only able to salvage bits of one of them!
i just need a few more layouts to really finish it, but it's complete enough to give!
page 1 - our save the date cards
page 2 - an early date to see a local band
page 3 - our kitty!! the caption around the oval in the top left says "you have the cutest spotted belly!" and the bottom one says "Clarisse, you were so tiny when we found you. I'm so glad we rescued you."
page 4 - first day of our vacation, the houston water wall
page 5 - our houston friends
page 6 - house of pies in houston
page 7 - st. pete's beach in florida
page 8 - the st. louis zoo
page 9 - halloween
page 10 - thanksgiving (his family)
page 11 - christmas (my family)
page 12 - we don't have a new year's eve page, because we spent it in his office, but we do have our one-year anniversary page!
page 13 - looking back, some details about where we met and our first date and such
page 14 - the cooking competition we enetered! the top embellishments say "always kiss the cook" with little lips!
i hope he likes it! i'm going to add a page from the winter storm, one about our house, my recent hopsitcal visit, and one about our extensive home library, which was a bonding point for us.
thanks for looking at my massive post!
