Earlier this week S & O had their first giveaway! We had acquired 426 followers and Valentines day was arriving so I decided it would be nice to have a V-day giveaway. The prize is going be a secret surprise, as the winner doesn't know what she'll be getting...but...there is no point in hiding it from you :D
This is a completely original romantic book, I designed the cover myself, by snatching pictures from the internet and scanning some magical paper that I already had.

(Back view)
This book was so much fun to make it has encouraged me to design more covers myself.

I also snuck in five little love poems, (well one was a quote) I put them on the end papers...

There is a lady sweet and kind,

Was never a face so pleased my mind;

I did but see her passing by,
and yet I love her till I die.

-Barnaby Googe

I also used the poems as page separators.

Don’t say you love me unless you really mean it, because I might do something crazy like believe it.


(I really like this painting)

See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea: -
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

~Percy Bysshe Shelley,

Kisses Kept Are wasted;
Love is to be tasted.
There are some you love, I know;
Be not loathed to tell them so.
Lips go dry and eyes go wet
Waiting to be warmly met.
Keep them not in waiting yet;
Kisses kept are wasted.

~Edmund Vance Cooke

Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;

Then to that twenty, adde an hundred more;

A thousand to that hundred; so kisse on,

To make that thousand up a million;

Treble that million, and when that is done,

Let’s kisse afresh, as when we first begun.

-Robert Herrick; To Anthea

I also threw in one of my favorite bookmarks.
