Special thanks to Ellen and mystery blog candy reminder!

I have been having the hardest time finishing this wedding guest book I am working on. The wedding is next weekend and I needed to get this done today but I was not sure how to decorate and arrange the inside. Well, I was surfing around looking for inspiration and I ended up on Ellen's site and saw a scrapbook layout and though, hey I have that Big Shot die... and then a whole concept came to me for my project. You can see Ellen's version here. Thanks for this inspiration!

Here is what I came up with:

I tied two different ribbons around the cover of the scrapbook and adhered a Jolee's Happily Ever After Sticker to the front. I also used the letters from K & Co and adhered the word Guest to the front of the book as well (forgot to take a pic of that). On the inside cover I used the So Swirly Big Shot strip die and gold paper for an accent.

For the inside pages, I used all SU! supplies and stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and Bridesmaid specialty cardstock using Sahara Sand Ink and stamps from the Wedding Sweet stamp set. Then I adhered very vanilla cardstock I ran through my printer and matted it on Sahara Sand and Soft Suede Cardstock.

Here I used some scrapbooking paper from my stash and decorated the borders with Martha Stewart border stickers and matted squares stamped with a stamp from the Wedding Sweet stamp set.

Finally I added some scrapbook pages in the back that the bride and groom can add their photos to using DCWV and Michael's Black tie supplies and some Canson specialty metallic paper.
