I made this for the bf just before he moved to Japan for six months to make sure he remembered me... We've now lived here together for two years! I've been a craftster-addict for years but I've never posted anything so I thought it was about time. I'm always so inspired by other people's creations, so thanks for all your help!

this is the front cover, pretty simple, just squishy foam shapes (from the 1 shop-I'm classy)

more foam letters, and a heart-shaped diamond. I love sparkles!

more sparkly diamond stickers

Halloween page... red and brown paint mixed with PVA. this was lots of fun, trying to make 'realistic' splatter patterns

one last pic (sorry!) this is possibly my favourite page... the paper is some scraps of vintage wrapping paper I inherited from a friend's mum and then I cut out some ice-skates (we were ice-skating, you just can't see in the photo)

thanks for looking!

Very cute. I like how you mixed pictures with paint and other techniques. And I just think it's so nice to make something like this for your boyfriend.

Say that again? Slowly....
