A Wedding Book

A friend of a friend asked if I would make a small wedding book that could be given to the bride as a gift before the big day by her bridesmaids. They wanted it to be in navy and cream and to included the main details of the day.
These are a few of the  pages that I made using my Bind It All, various punches, and couple of sweep embellishments.

On the pages on the left hand side of the book I added pockets to put messages and small photographs in.

I included a small pack of blank cards for the messages so that all the papers matched.

The centre panel of the back page was decorated with two lucky sweeps but left blank for a main message from the bridesmaids.

I also made a box for the book.

Very plain and very simple because I wanted the messages that will be added to be the main feature.

Answers to Questions;-
*The font is Papyrus - I use it for most of my books and wedding cards - as it's elegant and classy.
*I've had the sweeps for years - they came in a pack of six - three of each design.  I think they came off one of those embellishment carousels they sometimes have in  The Works.
