Avoiding the temptation to join another swap!!

I'm not a floofy girl, but my wife is.  So, I decided I'd make her a v-day gift with a punk edge (being that we're both of the punk disposition  Grin)   It includes the phrase, "I love You," in several different languages with varying font faces, Scriptures from the bible (that's right!) and romantic quotes from some of her favorite songs and poems. 

Also, this is my first post and book ever on Craftster!!  (yay!)

Materials Used:
Dated letter head from work for the pages
Cereal boxes for the cover
Acrylic Paints: Metallic Pewter and Silver
Fine, Red Glitter
Tacky Glue
Large Staples and Stapler (from work, of course)

I wanted an industrial-ish metal finish, but I don't know how to work with metal. I opted for cereal boxes from the recycling bin and a pewter paint.  I added a bit of my Diva self--represented by the glitter. 


This is the cover of the 50+ page book.


Title Page



This is Spanish


This is German


an appropriate bible verse from the Song of Solomon.

Thanks.  She loved it. 
I presented it to her on Saturday night, on our V-day weekend in San Francisco.   Grin
