Beautiful photo and page! What a wonderful story!

Chrysa... that is so beautiful... what a lovely story and one that I am sure your children will be so happy to know. I love the "forbidden" traffic sign but you know what they say - curiosity killed the cat :D I am so sad that you felt you weren't good enough for him and I am so glad that he proved you wrong. This is a wonderful love story... thank you so much for sharing it with me and the others. :D

Val Thorpe-DT, there is a trick on the journal spot the "read this" section that you mentioned... you propably already understood the "forbiden" traffic sign the circle and the phrase, make together... but I'll tell you what it sais...  "Once upon a time, we met each other in work... I fell in love with you from the very first moment... but I believed I wasn't worth for you. Till the moment you actually turn your eyes on me... and asked me out! We are together ever since writting the book of our life... the one that we will pass to our children to read in the future, hopping they will be as lucky as we are to have the magig of love in their lives!"

Such a clever idea to use the book as a design piece. Love the photo on the one side and the Read This on the other. Now I am curious to know what it says :D Lovely layout.

Comment by Sylvia Mellander Ekman - DT on October 29, 2013 at 9:54am

Yes! Me too! The spiral note book is such a cool design element. Love the tilted shot too. And the magic....<3
