Love Quotes

Those that know me well, know that I love quotes! I have quite a collection of my faves. I made this little scrapbook, as an experiment (trying out a new thing with paper folding), and it turned out really cute. The finished size is 3.5x3.5, and it reminded me of those little advice books that you can buy (because of it's size). I should make one with all my memories from Along the Road on this blog. I decided to fill this one with handwritten love quotes. There are excerpts from "our song", some great Bible verses, and some of our favourite quotes, all pertaining to love:-) It is completely adorable, and I am going to be making many more I think. Its supposed to be a mini scrapbook or brag book, but now that I am on the quote kick, I think it would make an adorable addition to a baby gift, full of advice or quotes about babies/parenting etc. Endless possibilities!

The cover, a stamped phrase saying "heart to heart, hand in hand"

The last page...and one of my favourite quotes of all time. "I do" - Brian

So because I love quotes so much, here are all the ones I put in this little book. Some of them may not make much sense to you, as they have story behind them:-)
