"True Love" heart acrylic scrapbook

 I made this acrylic album about 2 years ago. I just have never posted it & thought it's that time of year, why not?!! If you've never done an acrylic type album b/c you're scared to try it. I was the same way. As a matter a fact this is my 1st acrylic album & I loved how it ended up turning out! Who knew how fun it would be!! I had the album for a while, but kept being to unsure what it would turn out like & how to even start it. I kept putting it off. So I finally brought it w/me on vacation for something to do & that's where it all happened! As a matter a fact that's where my love for mini albums started! :) I have very few I keep. I give most of my mini albums away as gifts or sell them. So my best advice if you have always wanted to make one of these bad boys, but have been to scared to start is....JUST DO IT! It's SO fun! I also tried to make sure things lined up & looked good from both sides & all the way through the album before sticking it down. A little trickier then a non see through album, but so fun!
 My hubby proposing. Hard to believe we were only 19 yo here. almost 14 years later, we're still going strong! :)
