Antique Book of Love, a Craftster Challenge

hen I first saw this challenge I was stuck, Valentines Day has never really meant much for me. In high school it was all about the chocolates. When I met my husband he was deployed on our first Valentine's Day, and our second, and our third. So you can see why Im so stuck this year. We are not a flowers and chocolates kind of couple. We are practical but enjoy whimsy in our lives. Like our toaster oven, wanting to make the kitchen a bit more "me", hubby painted it red. Practical and whimsical. I didn't survive the move, but it was nice having it! Sooo.. the point is I want to give this challenge entry to my hubby, but it must be like us. So instead of making a big Love Book, I made a mini Love Book. Thou small it contains the essential elements of our relationshio, and of course , a secret!
Now on with the picture obesity!
All wraped and ready for hubby!
el amor secreto 1
The spine "El Amor" = "Love"libri side
The elements of our relationship: time, pearls, seizing the moment, love letters during separations (post stamp) and glitter :D
open book
But whats that on the side?

Could it be? It looks like a drawer! Lets open it!

Unwrap the secret and you will find our song!
