Valentines Purse Album for My Husband



Hi Everyone!! I created this mini purse album for my husband. I'm going to give it to him for Valentines Day. I thought he would appreciate a little mini album. I always give him some sort of mini album for his birthday, our anniversary, and Valentines.

I usually give him a family type mini album but because this one is for Valentines I thought one of him and me was more appropriate.

I never know what to give my husband for Valentines. Isn't it usually the guy suppose to be buying for the girl? LOL! I don't really buy him anything for Valentines but a card and maybe some sort of mini album that I create. What do you give your husband? I think I need a few ideas on what to give him.

My husband is wonderful because he'll go all out and buy me flowers, candy, dinner, and some sort of nice gift. He is really a romantic kind of guy. . .much more so than I am. I'm really practical.


Here is the album with the page inside the album. I used my Pink Cat Studio Lily & Billy Sweethearts set.

With the Lily & Billy image I drew the heart flowers . . .I thought it would be cute to add pretty hearts.




Here is me and my husband . . .actually, it's a picture taken a few years ago when I was skinny. I was looking for a current photo but there isn't any good ones with me and him together so I had to use the old photos.









Here is another photo. Both photos were taken when we were on a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii!! We had really great memories of our trip so I thought the photos were appropriate for Valentines Day.

Anyway. . .hope you all are having a great Inauguration Day!!

Maria!!! OMG!!! My chin is literally on the floor right now!! I absolutely love this idea and the way you executed it!! The purse is genius enough but then to also create a photo album I am just in heaven. Can you move close to me so you can teach me how to do this? Seriously though this is incredible!

Smiles,

BEAUTIFUL! wow - he is going to LOVE this - this is such an inspiration! beautiful way of showcasing special memories from a special vacation!!! Your husband sounds soooo sweet (as are yOU!) hmm.. i don't ever know what to get my DH anyway... I usually do something with numbers for each of the years we are married (like on our 5th year of being married I put 5 clues around the house to help him find where his Valentines present was hidden (which was a mini iPod, 6 pairs of socks (not that exciting i know :), and last year it was 7 mini cakes that i baked... that's kind of fun to do.. this year.. we are coming up on 8... hmmm.. not sure what to do... something simple.. like 8 stamps that I will buy to make a card for him with LOL!!!!haha!
sending you lots of sunshine :)
