yet another wedding creation... not only have we had several family weddings (with one still next month!), but my daughter's 2nd grade teacher is getting married this saturday. today they celebrated the occasion with a mock wedding (!) after which we gave her this book. each student wrote a wish for the wedding (the post title being my favorite) and illustrated it. then i laminated them, created this cover and bound it all together. i actually punched the holes and twirled the wire myself--gotta get a bind-it-all machine!
for the cover, i stamped the bride and groom on white card stock, laminated it and then ran it through my bigkick with the cuttlebug d'vine swirls embossing folder placed just below the bride & groom. then i traced the cake from a cookie cutter and cut it out--i actually had to eyeball it a bit smaller since the cookie cutter was a little bigger than i wanted. i printed and laminated the blue cover on it's own and added the cake with crystal effects after, along with a jewel in each corner for some bridal bling. the ribbon was for even more extra flair--and it didn't hurt that it covered up my not so perfect spiral binding!
the stationery photographed with the book was an extra little gift from mignon and me. one of my favorite wedding presents was similar little note paper with both david's and my names together--our names in print was such a fun new accessory! this is my own contemporary version of that, which i've created for all the various newlyweds in our lives lately. and don't you just love that paperweight--talk about bling!
so, i think we should all follow the advice of a wise second grader and...
have a good kiss!
