Krissy's wedding day - guest book reveal

Today our niece Krissy is getting married
and we welcome a new family member: Jamie.


My photos are dark because we had another rainy week, but that's ok...


The pages are rather plain and simple...


I'm excited to see what these pages will look like with
messages of good wishes and love written all over them!


A labor of love...project complete.



Edit: I made the book myself using book board, suit (linen) fabric to cover it, and some nice linen paper from an art store for the pages. It took me two tries for the cover which was frustrating, but I learned a lot while constructing this piece so future projects should be a breeze, right?
