My best friend and I were running low on cash, so we made our boyfriends scrapbooks for Christmas. Mostly outta materials we already had. Cardstock, construction paper, and markers. Its not a 'real' scrapbook, but it does the job. I'm pretty happy with it turned out with the materials we had. (Go figure, my dad bought all new scrapbooking papers for Christmas Tongue) Here are some of my favorites:

The cover

The inside cover

All the flaps unfold. "You always surprise me"

"You give the best hugs" and "Your kisses make me giddy"
I also included little tinier gifts for him to open as we read through it together. This one happened to be hershey's kisses.

"You always want to pay"
Tickets from some of the movies we've been to. I would've included more, but they wouldn't fit!

"You love me from 170 miles away"
We've been together for more then a year, but recently he went away to college.
But we haven't grown apart, and we've survived his first semester. (:

"You like to cuddle" (Gift 5 was a teddy bear) and "You have the cutest smile"

"I can be super silly around you" Gift 4 was silly string. I was right, I regretted it. I got creamed about 5 seconds after opening. Tongue

"You let me look at the fishies in walmart"
I think the fish I designed are cute(:
Except the last one, he's demented.

Oh, and he was crying by page 3. (But don't tell him I said so. Tongue)

I have a new found love for inchies.
Let's swap 'em (: Private swaps too!
