A New Project

Greetings Stampers and Friends! I hope you've all had a wonderful 4th of July! We had a wonderful time going to the parade and spending time with friends and family. Our home town always has a phenomenal parade and once again they did a bang up job! The parade always starts off with a military fly by and that always moves me.

Before I get to the card I made I have something to ask all of you. I have to get working on a big project here today that I've really been looking forward to doing. My cousin (I only have 2) is getting married next month and he and his fiancĂ©e have asked me to make their guest book. How exciting is that? So I'm wondering if any of you fellow bloggers have and suggestions, links or tutorials I could take a gander at. I have an idea in my head, but I would really like to see what all of you have done in the past. I'd like to bind it myself – maybe a little Japanese binding or something. I don't want to spiral bind it, I'd like to be able to use some pretty ribbon. So, if you could help me out with that I would dearly appreciate it.

Anyway, The card today is one I made quite a while ago. I used the pretty princess set from Stampin' Up!. This little purse opens up and is a birthday invitation. The front of the purse is actually a shaker card and filled with microbeads. I used some feather boa pieces from the clearance rack at Michaels. You gotta love clearance racks!

I used the Stampin' Up! markers to color in the princess and used some of the long ago retired yellow glitter from Stampin' Up!. I can't believe I still have some, but I do.

Now I am off to take my beautiful Sophie to the orthodontist. Fun stuff! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
