Ooops! I'm a little late!

Uh-oh! I forgot to hit the "PUBLISH" button for this post...duh! 
Anywho, here I am - better late than never, right?

It's Thursday & that means time for another fun C.R.A.F.T. Challenge
Our theme for this week is: 


We have TWO sponsors for this week's challenge:
 FIRST WINNER PRIZE: 2 digistamps of the winners choice

Also sponsoring this week's challenge is our very own Jo aka "Trimgym"

 SECOND WINNER PRIZE: Jo has a lovely pack of Valentines Day themed digital papers (15 in total)

I wanted to create something a little more than card, and was inspired by a little booklet by Becca at Amazing Paper Grace.   Here's a special Valentine's creation for my Hunny......

I altered the design to include a "cover" and is held closed
with a magnetic flap.

There are 8 pages and 2 pockets - lots of space to add sentiments, images & yummy embellies! 

I stamped out my own designer paper using Stampin' Up! En Francais and Looks Like Spring stamp sets.
I used one of my favorite Love Poems for my booklet....
Love is patient, love is kind
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13
