Fabulous Friday - Love & Romance

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

Last day of exams for the girls today - and back to normal from Tuesday and the start of Semester 2. Countdown is on too, as Shannon graduates High School this year.  We have her prom dress, we still have to get shoes and then probably have the dress shortened a little.  Can't show you the dress just yet - you'll have to wait :-)

Anyways, lets get on with today's post.  We have a new challenge starting over at Polkadoodles and our theme for this fortnight is Love and Romance - so anything Valentines, Anniversary, Wedding or creations with hearts should fit the bill.

Andy's nephew got married last year and I decided to make a book fold for them.  Yes you read that correctly, last year!  However, Andy went back to the UK the other week and so I made the gift so that he could take it back with him :-)

I have used papers and embellishments from the fabulous Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses collection. to decorate the sides and spine of the book!  The photo's I managed to get the bride to email me so that I could print them out, she didn't know what they were for ;-)

I found the perfect ribbon too to go around the top and bottom. 

Oh, Did you want to see the book fold LOL!  I had purchased this Book fold pattern from Crafty Hana and her Etsy store.

Perfect for the newly weds, don't you think?  I loved how the book already had the fabulous red inside cover too!

For the top to cover the back spine opening,  I used my Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret Dies to make the flower. 

So why don't you go along an enter our challenge for this fortnight.  Valentines is not long off, so I know you will all be busy making things!
