Valentines Day is not just about being in love and receiving chocolates from your lover. It is a day to celebrate love. Loving your friends, your parents, your children, your family, your pets and don't forget yourself. This is what makes Valentines the perfect time to create an album about all those that you love and care for the most. The people in your life that love you and support you. While those feelings of love are close to the surface.
Dedicate one or two pages to each person that you love. Express what that person means to you, what makes them special in your eyes.
Tell your love story in a mini keepsake. Lori created her love story and based it on based on a Song "Your still the one" You can do the same or you can take it back to when you first met
Keep these questions in mind when thinking of creating your love scrapbook album
- How did you first meet and where?
- What were your first impressions of each other?
- Where did you go on your first date, who asked who?
- Where was your first kiss? Were there butterflies in your stomach, was it perfect?
- You knew it was love when....
- Do you have any mementos? Tickets, love notes, cards, photos?
- Are you married now, who proposed to who, where, how?
- Are your lives now filled with children, grandchildren, great grand children?
- Have there been any outstanding occasions that deserve a place "Your love story"
- Where will it go from here... happily ever after?
Memorabilia can include
- Tickets from events
- Menus or business cards from Restuarants and other locations that mean something to the both of you
