Unfortunately we can't go to the wedding, too many things against us for it, but to be invited was nice. I've never been to Gretna or Scotland for that matter. Well unless you count standing on Hadrian's Wall many years ago. One day maybe. ?????
Anyway I was aiming to finish off the CJ I began yesterday but the guest book called me louder. (Sorry Lizzie but don't worry it will be done in time.) I decided to use the 7 Gypsies small boxed accordian book. There are only about 40 people invited I believe, so this is hopefully perfect for the guests to sign.
I thought about it before starting and went through my papers deciding to use my K & Co Bailey papers. Not exactly wedding like but oh so lovely. I decorated the outside of the box before putting it together, but I forgot to decorate the inside first too. Luckily I bought a 2nd kit just in case, so I took a template from it and carefully added it to the first box. With that sorted I was in full flow so I moved on to the book. I decorated each page with more Bailey papers and then added a white square of paper, rounded at each corner, for the guests to write on. Embellishments had to be fairly small so as not to take up too much room. I used peel offs and Prima flowers with adhesive gems mainly, with fibres between the folds. Alphabet letters are from Basic Grey, Mellow Maude.
The whole thing took me about 3 hours from start to finish, in between doing the washing and checking on the girls every so often. I really like the end result and I hope my niece will too.
Photos were taken tonight so aren't best quality. I will replace them with daylight ones next time I'm here.
