My little brother is getting married next month and his cute little bride is having a bridal shower this weekend.  I asked them when they got engaged if they would be interested in having me do a guest book for them and they (she?) said YES!  So as soon as I was told wedding colors (royal blue and golden yellow) I started "collecting" things that would work for their guest book (and a smaller book that will be a wedding gift).  I will admit, I didn't start actually WORKing on this project until last week.  I always underestimate how long these things take me!! I assumed I could work on it for an afternoon and be done.  Well, a few days (and a LOT of hours) later, I had 15 beautiful pages done.  Each page has a spot for a 4x6 photo to go and then blank space for guests to sign and write little messages to the bride and groom.  Without further ado, here they are:

(Not the best pics, but I really didn't want to post 15 photos) I did take a little bit of artistic liberty and added a little bit of navy blue, aqua and gray in the mix, but I liked the mix of blues.  The patterned paper is by Teresa Collins, along with the brads, buttons and most of the jewels.  I also used paper flowers, ribbon and baker's twine and inked the edges in either blue or yellow.  The card stock is a mix of DCWV, Core'dinations, and American Crafts.  It's also a mix of glittered, color core, shimmer, textured and smooth.   I used Kiwi Lane Designs Templates on most of the pages, too (did ya hafta even ask?) and some Martha Stewart border punches.  Huh.  I just noticed there's not a butterfly in sight- so not like me!  Maybe I'll fix that later :)

While I completely enjoyed doing this project, it hardly touched my stash!  These things were my last major purchase before I set my goal of 100.  So it was all put away together and all I used from my stash was a bit of twine and yellow ribbon and a few more sheets of white card stock.  Maybe next project I'll get to dig into my supplies more....

Thanks for joining me and Happy Scrapping!
