A little late, but wanted to show off the gift I gave my husband-to-be for Sweetest Day.  We are getting married on January 28, 2012 and so I wanted to do something handmade that would mean a lot and yet not break the bank, so I came up with this.

I listened to a TON of songs and collected 14 that had the most meaning to me and related the most to our relationship.  I didn't include any wedding songs at all, because I'm going to do another mixed cd for our anniversary that includes wedding songs!  I took snippets of lyrics that meant the most and wrote them out on notebook paper.  I made them into a booklet journal of sorts by using scotch tape.  I then took those songs and put them into a mixed cd.  I included a letter in the front that served as his card, and then also included another card that just told about my hopes and dreams for us as a couple.  He really enjoyed it!








Thanks for looking!

This is super sweet.  My boyfriend and I didn't celebrate sweetest day, but I might do something like this for Valentine's day.  Thanks for the idea!!
