Here's a close-up, showing the layers of elements and detail...
I think the cover is just too sweet for words. I've used pictures of me and Lee on our trip to San Diego in December 2007. It was a rememberance of sorts - celebrating our anniversary, but also visiting his very first duty station, the USS Midway, which is now a museum.
Here is the second page spread. This past December, we celebrated our 23rd anniversary, but I still used a pic from that San Diego trip a year prior.
A close-up of the detail of flowers with pearly centers...And the german scrap as a regal trim.
In addition to a photo of Lee next to the hull number of his beloved ship, I used a lovely stamp from The Stampsmith - I call them The Lovers! Other stamp credits are available on request. Just email me.
