You & me, and me & you! This song by the Turtles became the theme for this fun little album. When I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it and the fun papers from July’s kit! I recently completed Stacy Julian’s Library of Memories class at Big Picture Scrapbooking (LOVE IT!) so I had a file of great photos of Nathan, my husband and I. The lyrics from this song kept running through my mind and they said exactly what I wanted to convey to my husband – so happy together!
This album came together in about two to three hours. I cropped each picture and rounded the corners. I glued paper scraps to each page, punched the holes for the binding and inked the edges. With the lyrics in hand, I started playing with picture placement and journaling. The journaling wasn’t showing up as well as I wanted it to so Lisa suggested using paint splotches to highlight the song. It worked GREAT!
The cover came together really well, using the add-on kit alphabet
, the American Craft thickers from the kit and the Heidi Swapp Family Corner stamp. I used just the word “together” from the stamp and it worked wonderfully! Adding ribbon and a little more ink (I think I’m addicted) really finished it.

If I should call you up, invest a dime
You say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be so very fine
SO happy together!
I can see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life!
When you’re with me no matter
How they toss the dice
The only one for me is you and you for me.
