Wedding Book

Back in June another gal and I were putting on a bridal shower for a girl at church. Her outdoor wedding was to have a country western theme, with the bride wearing a plaid shirt, jeans and cowboy boots! We found some great tablewear to go with the theme. That same evening I found the perfect sheet of paper at a garage sale for 10 cents! It matched the tablewear almost EXACTLY!!!

That's how the card below came about...


I already had the "denim" looking paper at home so the card came together pretty fast. I was stumped by the advice book I was going to make until I saw this post by my Angel buddy Seleise. The book couldn't be assembled until AFTER the shower, though, since we were going to pass the pages around and let the ladies offer words of advice, humor, Scripture, etc. That's why it's not bound yet...



We also used a few pages at the beginning to write the list of gifts she received that day. I really wish I would have pix of the finished book because I added fun ribbon to the binding. It turned out really cute, and should be something she can hang onto for years to come. ;-)
