Guest Book for Julie and Richard

Got up this morning and thought about what to do today. Decided to make the Wedding Guest book that Julie had asked me to do, she wanted the colours to be teal and white.
The wedding is not till September but if we get the planning permission to put another level on the dormer bungalow I am not going to be of a calm mind to do it. Another reason I decided to get it done early was in case Julie didn't like it.
So I looked through my stash and started work.
The first thing I did was round the corners of each page inside the book and then use the scroll stamp you see on the cover at the top and bottom of alternate pages.

I had the cotton scraps with the images for so long, but thought they would be perfect for the book. I put a white cotton lace hankie as the base of the cover, oops, no I didn't I used some Bo Bunny scrapbook paper first then added the cotton hankie.
On top I added the cotton scraps and some Prima Marketing Calcutta Mini flowers, I did paint the centre with some teal from Viva metal paints.
I put white lace down the spine, added the Tim Holtz drawer knob and then hung some embellishments.
Fingers crossed it will get the seal of approval.








All that is left to do to it is add the words to their tune on the inside cover and then put Tim Holz metal corners on and ta-da done and dusted.
Thanks for dropping by to take a peak xxx
