It took a little longer than planned.......

but here I am (finally) and ready to post and share again.

This particular project took a little longer than I thought too. Which is just fine by me, because I think it turned out better than my first plan. I thought it would be nice to make a little book about how my DH and I met, and all of those details close to my heart. It's hard to remember the details 17 years back. So I kept it simple and I am happy with it.
I used this set ,this, and I love how it turned out!!

Here's the first page. I kept it simple and to the point. There is so much more infomation and details I could have added, but these sum it up nicely. I decided to add a little snipet of crocheted lace that my Mother-in-law made for my wedding dress, it's tucked under "The Beginning".

This is the second (middle) page.This is the picture that my mom took of us just before leaving for our first read official date (just the two of us). He took me to the Phantom of the Opera. I spent just as much on my dress and he did the tickets. At that time, the dress cost me $120.

This is the last page. It describes the details about our first date.

This is the back.

Here it is, displayed in my room. I decided to decorate the frame as well. It says,
"there's no remedy for love,nothing can change the way I feel. I'm head over heals, for worse or for better."
That was from the song that was played at our wedding. I added here, the remainder of the crocheted peice, and placed it under the 'LOVE'.

That was my Vanlentines gift to my Hubby.
