Okay, I've made a couple of albums for my boyfriend before. One was really mushy and I made it when I moved to a different city. Another one was all about his favorite sports team for that paticular season (to make up for the overly mushy scrapbook before).

This one is different. Its simple, for one thing. And its short. And I created the whole album. I used chipboard for the covers and as the background for the pages. I'm super proud of this album. Its my most favorite thing I've EVER done. If anyone is interested in how I made the album, let me know. I'll see if I can't come up with a tutorial.

Cover of the album. Title is also the theme.

This is the title page. Tried to kinda make it look like jr high girls notebooks - kwim? I hope that came across. Anyway, each song and artist in the album are represented here.

Song: Something
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: If this was meant to be...Don't condemn me to be free...And even if we never marry...I will always love you baby, childishly

Song: Something
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: I love the temperature and smell of your body... the shape of your lips and the size of your nose... I love that everything you say is so funny... Plus you're the best kisser that I've ever known... You see the way I am, without makeup without clotehes... And you accept me like nobody... And I will always love you baby... With eyes closed

Song: Underneath Your Clothes
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: You're a song.... written by the hands of God... Don't get me wrong... This might sound to you a bit odd... But you own the place where... all my thoughts go hiding... Right under your clothes is... Where I'll find them

Song: Always You
Artist: Jennifer Paige
Lyrics: I wake up in this dream tonight... That's when I see the truth... Of all the faces in my heart... There's only one I choose... Always you

Song: When You Say Nothing At All
Artist: Alison Krauss
Lyrics: (Really really long. I used almost the whole song for this. So here's just the chorus)  The smile on your face lets me know that you need me... There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me... A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall... You say it best, when you say nothing at all

Song: We Belong Together
Artist: Mariah Carey
Lyrics: Who else am I going to lean on when times get tough... Who's going to talk to me on the phone til the sun comes up.... Who's going to take your place... There ain't nobody better... Oh baby baby... We belong together

Song: Crazy in Love
Artist: Beyonce
Lyrics: You got me lookin so crazy, my baby... I'm not myself, lately... I'm foolish, I don't do this... I've been playin myself... Baby I don't care... But your love's got the best me... Baby you're makin' a fool of me... You got me sprung... And I don't care who sees... You got me lookin so crazy

Song: Loving Me For Me
Artist: Christina Aguilera
Lyrics: Your lips, you love, your smile, your kiss... I must admit is a part of me... Completes me, believe me, play me like a melody... Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth... Has sent me proof that we were meant to be... But your best quality that's hooking me... Is that you're loving me for me

And the last page really just is the whole song of Music of My Heart. The song was performed by Gloria Estefan and *NSYNC.

PS: I know alot of you are probably groaning at my choice of music. But *shrug* I like pop. Ryan doesn't. But there was no way I could make an album about how much I love him when his music tastes are Cannibal Corpse and Vital Remains and Cattle Decapitation. Those lyrics just don't quite give off the lovey-vibe, kwim?

That is so sweet! I like to make mix CD's for my hubby, and since I work at a graphic design firm, I can print pictures on the CDs and make custom jackets. I know he will love it, even if he doesn't like pop music.
