How do I love you?

So this week's Dare is extra Speshal!
This week we're joining forces with the wonderful team of Scrapbookers over on the Everyone is Speshal blog. We're daring each other and you to make a Really Romantic Scrapbook Layout - but on a card!
Hmmm. Quite a challenge. I got a sudden flash of inspiration (rare) and made a mini book out of 8x8 square sheet of black Bazzill from my January Self Addressed kit. Just score into squares and cut along one score line into the centre and fold. et voila.
All the papers are from the kit too. It also features a Sarah's bloomer, bazzill button, various ribbons, Crate stickers (plus a few others), my new journalling stamps (will need to buy more), loads of ink etc. The text on the front, various hearts and stars were craft robo'd.
There are a LOT of photos so be warned.
And... I've given him the card already cos I couldn't wait!

The heart on 5 is made using little squares of paper cut in a heart shape. There maybe something similar on the Scrapstars challenge crop tomorrow.

All the Daring Cardmakers and Speshal Girls have done some fabbo work on this dare so go and look at all the lushness that being romantic produces!

It's wonderful, to use an overused, but in this case justifiable phrase It's awesome - can you hear the fake US accent there?

Lythan, it's so gorgeous - I need to know - did a tear come to his eye?
