With my Daughter's wedding now only a week away I thought I would show you the Guest Book that I've decorated for the big day. Whilst in Hobby Craft with my daughter a couple of weeks ago looking for table confetti she saw a Wedding Guest Book she liked. So I bought the book for her, (£14.99, not that I begrudged that) but on closer inspection when we got home, we noticed the pages had ink splats on them. Something that looked as though it had happened during the manufacture of the book. So the next day I returned it to the store, and as it was the last one I opted for a refund. Whilst wandering around looking for inspiration on what else I could do instead, I found this white book (cover as well), what Hobby Craft called a scrapbook. As this was only £5.00 I decided to buy it with a view to decorating it. This is what I came up with. I first covered the back and front with this pale green backing paper, it has very pale roses on it and I overlaid in MCS a text sheet with the words Wedding Day printed over it, after I took the opacity down so that it's very faint. I fixed it with glue and seal from Ranger. The large corners are from Tonic, the letters are from dies from Rob Addams and lastly the flower dies are from Crealies. I added some gems to the butterflies on the corner dies and the centres of the flowers. The ribbon is already part of the book. I must confess that I have one of these little scrapbooks as a journal, the paper in them is quite good quality and they are just the right size too. I've not shown it to her yet, although I did tell her what I had planned for the front, I just hope she likes it.
Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
