30 Things I Love About You

Hi, everyone.

Tomorrow is a special day for our hubby, me, and our family. It marks my Dad's 80th birthday, our nephew's 13th birthday, and our 30th wedding anniversary. I posted Dad's card in an earlier post entitled Look, Dad. And, I will post my nephew's card in a later post. Today's post is for hubby.

The "card" shown below was one of our Tim Holtz CREATE projects. After choosing the wedding photo for the front cover, I decided to make this hubby's card. My thanks to CREATE amiga Sue for the card's theme: 30 Things I Love About You.  So, upon returning to home, I completed the card, including making the 30-things-tags that comprise the interior contents.  :)

Front cover -- completed during class

Interior Left and Center Flaps -- with tags peeking through
Decoration started in class, finished at home

30-Things Tags -- cut, stenciled, and written at home

You'll notice the tags are arranged in a random order. Even the numbering is rather random, with the longest "things" appearing in the back section and the shorter "things" appearing in the front. When I realized that the text was going to affect the placement, I stenciled numbers in a random order and then taped them in place -- in a little more linear arrangement than Tim probably would have chosen.  :)

Think hubby will be a little puzzled  by a vintage photo of an unknown bride and groom at the puzzle. Then again, he heard how the CREATE projects were like nothing I'd ever done before. 

Parting Thoughts

Here's hoping for another 30 wonderful years.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
