Zydrate comes in a little glass vile...

I know that by now everyone and their grandmother has made one of these, but on my budget I just couldn't pass it up.  This year was my boyfriend and I's first Valentine's day and we've been dating since June.  He's never really celebrated Vday and I'm a bit strapped for cash, but we wanted it to be a bit special.  This project took a lot longer than I expected, but I liked the results .....and he even teared up while reading it.  Kiss


One little mishap....the binder rings I bought ended up being too small. I didn't think that my crafting would add so much to the cards, so I'm going to get larger rings and "re-string" the pages soon.

Sorry for the crappy pics...my camera gets finicky about night shots.





(you are kind)



(You put up with my vampire book addiction)



(You won't let me live on Ramen until next payday) -- Every time a ton of bills come due at once or it looks like all my money is walking out, I always throw up my hands and say "Oh, I'll just live on Ramen until I get paid!!" and he always answers "No, you won't..."



(You gave me an AMAZING vacation) -- A bunch of us planned a long vacation to ComiCon in San Diego and then Vegas.  Just before, I ran into some financial crap and didn't think I would be able to afford it, but he made it all possible Smiley



(You watch Glee with me (and kinda like it) )--- hehe, this one is one of my faves



(you are a nerd...like me)



(You love me)



(You give me more reasons every day)


Let me know what you think!

I guess I must live under a rock, because I've never seen one of these. It is such a clever idea, and yours is beautiful! What a wonderful expression of your love. I can see why your boyfriend was so touched by it.

Thank you Smiley

I just stumbled on them on here while looking for Vday gift ideas, but I guess people have been making them for a couple years.  Maybe our rocks are next to each other? haha

I really like the idea of covering the cards so the spades, clubs, etc., are not seen, but an appropriate picture is placed with the saying.  Great idea.
