Creative Sketches Week 39 Anything Goes

Now that the wedding is over, perhaps I can get back to some regular posts, challenges and art sharing :0)

However, since it's anything goes week on Creative Sketches, let's visit a particular item I made for the wedding. I've been missing my oriental creating lately and when I designed this guest book for the wedding, I chose Japanese Stab Binding to put it together. A small wedding didn't need a very big book so this album is perfect. The inside pages match the invitations. Our beautiful bride loved this swirl paper so it became the cover. I bound the book with matching silk ribbon tied in a bow. After designing the label, I cut it out with a die, then used the framing technique we use with our Stampin' Up! punches to create the frame. Add in some pretty flowers, leaves and rhinestone centers and a lovely book was complete and ready for wedding day.

Wedding Day

Bet you thought I'd disappeared off the face of the earth, LOL! Nothing so dramatic but last minute prep for my son's wedding kept me pretty busy. Add in a storm with roof damage and well I've been running at full speed. Here are a couple of pictures to enjoy of our happy day welcoming our new DIL to the family.
