Better Together!

I have spent the better part of the day creating this lovely for my DH on our second anniversary March 20th. Yeah...I know I should have had this done days ago...but late last night as I lay in bed and thought about our anniversary...I thought how much better we are together!!! Thus the title of the mini that follows along with Jack Johnson's lyrics to said song! So, either I feel bad about finishing it the day of...or celebrate the creativity that came to me! The old green cover was from a 1943 girl scout song book.

Click on each photo to get a full size version.

The cover is actually the return post card for our reception on June 2. It couldn't have matched the lyrics any better!
1943 girl scout song book...flea market find!

Below you will see where I cropped the index photos and used the strips to create this left side page! It matched the lyrics to the song. Which in all actuality is how I created each page...keeping in mind the lyrics.











Thanks for looking!

Love your mini! I like all the layering and creative elements you added to the project. IMHO, the best anniversary presents are those done within 24 hours before, of, or after said anniversary. Wink, wink. I'm just saying...
