Valentine's LOVE Premade Scrapbooks

Valentine's Day is Sunday February 14th.

First few years we celebrated like everyone else in an over crowded over priced noisy trendy restaurant. These days, and with the economy the way it is, WE decide on the day and time we celebrate our love for each other. No more  babysitter chase, no over priced everything, we have a roomy space, all to ourselves and we can talk. After all, communication is key and making out in public was never my thing.

Love can (and should be) be celebrated all year long.You can scribble a note on the mirror, leave one in his lunch bag or kitchen table, send her flowers with a nice note in them for no good reason other than the intensity of your feelings for her that day. You can hide a love note that tells him why you love him so much in his bag/sock/briefcase or other exciting places you can think of - be creative! I find words to go a long way.

If you're a real romantic, you can make him a LOVE scrapbook or buy her a premade one. Here are some samples to start you thinking:

Stay healthy and in love,

Hanukkah Mini Scrapbook Album for 2009

It's been awhile, I know. My parents went back home, we needed to pick up the pieces and get back to our routines. Only than I collected the different photos, picked the best ones (light here is different, I need to change my ways of taking photos) and find a block of time to place them in my premade scrapbook layouts.
Lucky for me and you - I found the time! So here they are, first pages of my 6" mini scrapbook album for Hanukkah of 2009:
