Valentine's Day was fast approaching, and I still didn't have a card or a gift for my husband...so I was thrilled to see the little mini-book that Tim Holtz posted on his blog on the 11th. What a wonderful creation, made from just one sheet of 12x12 paper! This is my version of the mini-book, and I'm pleased to say that my hubs loved it!
